4,942. This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution. Sex and race because they are easy and visible differences have been the primary ways of organizing human beings into superior and inferior groups and into the cheap labour on which this system still depends. We are talking about a society in which there will be no roles other than those chosen or those earned. We are really talking about humanism. (Right & Feminism & Race & Women & Revolution & Human Beings & Discrimination) Gloria Steinem
5,002. I am not in favour of Negro citizens.

39,121. I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races. Abraham Lincoln, 1858 debate
39,253. The assassination of Abraham Lincoln marked the beginning of a disastrous political process that led Americans to reject the appeals for racial equality that had emerged from the radicalism of the Civil War. During the century between emancipation in the 1860s and the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s African Americans were pushed into segregated lives, defined by the so-called Jim Crow laws. And lynching. (Black Culture & Racism) Abraham Lincoln: Saint or Sinner? BBC 2011
5,085. I would rather sit with the rural poor, the desperate children of urban blight, the victims of racism, and working people seeking a better life than with those whose religion is the status quo, whose goal is profit and whose hearts are cold.

12,910. Anti-Semitism was preached as an official doctrine of the church until 1964. (Catholicism & Prejudice & Jewish & Racism) Christopher Hitchens, with Stephen Fry v the Catholic Church 2009
39,173. And I’ll close by saying this. Because anti-Semitism is the godfather of racism and the gateway to tyranny and fascism and war, it is to be regarded not as the enemy of the Jewish people, I learned, but as the common enemy of humanity and of civilisation, and has to be fought against very tenaciously for that reason, most especially in its current, most virulent form of Islamic Jihad. Daniel Pearl’s revolting murderer was educated at the London School of Economics. Our Christmas bomber over Detroit was from a neighboring London college, the chair of the Islamic Students’ Society. Many pogroms against Jewish people are being reported from all over Europe today as I’m talking, and we can only expect this to get worse, and we must make sure our own defenses are not neglected. Our task is to call this filthy thing, this plague, this – this pest, by its right name; to make unceasing resistance to it, knowing all the time that it’s probably ultimately ineradicable, and bearing in mind that its hatred towards us is a compliment, and resolving (some of the time, at any rate) to do a bit more to deserve it. Thank you. (Racism & Discrimination) Christopher Hitchens
95,985. The connection between religion, racism, and totalitarianism is also to be found in the other most hateful dictatorship of the twentieth century: the vile system of apartheid in South Arica. This was not just the ideology of a Dutch-speaking tribe bent on extorting forced labour from peoples of a different shade of pigmentation, it was also a form of Calvinism in practice. The Dutch Reformed Church preached a dogma that black and white were biblically forbidden to mix, let alone to coexist in terms of equality. (South Africa & Racism) Christopher Hitchens, God is Not Great p251
