We must never remain silent in the face of bigotry. We must condemn those who seek to divide us. In all quarters and at all times, we must teach tolerance and denounce racism, anti-Semitism and all ethnic or religious bigotry wherever they exist as unacceptable evils. We have no place for haters in America -- none, whatsoever.
Increasingly independent black economic, cultural and political power gave Blacks more freedom to do what came natural to them. Divorced from White influence and culture, they reverted quickly to their genotype - increasingly typical of black societies around the world. Males exhibited exaggerated sexual aggression and promiscuity that led to the dissolution of the Black nuclear family in America. Females reverted to the age-old African model of maternal provisioning of children.
If you stick a knife nine inches into my back and pull it out three inches, that is not progress. Even if you pull it all the way out, that is not progress. Progress is healing the wound, and America hasn't even begun to pull out the knife.
All people of African descent, whether they live in North or South America, the Caribbean, or in any part of the world are Africans and belong to the African nation.
'Every individual of African origin, in whichever corner of the globe they reside, form part of the African community.'
We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that has buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, its elderly, and its sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.
Never let yourself be persuaded that any one Great Man, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of America. When America consists of one leader and 158 million followers, it will no longer be America.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
An America where every person, no matter their race, their disability or their sexual orientation realizes the full promise of equality that is our birthright as Americans.
A nation where each individual, regardless of their ethnicity, physical handicap or sexual inclination experiences the entire potential of parity that is our inherent right as citizens.
I wish I could say that racism and prejudice were only distant memories... We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust... We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.
The newspaper that obstructs the law on a trivial pretext, for money's sake, is a dangerous enemy to the public weal. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse.
America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance - it is not. It is suffering from tolerance. Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded.
Fulton J. Sheen
Either America will destroy ignorance or ignorance will destroy the United States.
W. E. B. Du Bois
Either America will vanquish illiteracy or illiteracy will annihilate the United States.
My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism.
My aim in life is to overthrow divinity and annihilate capitalism.
I can prophecy that your grandchildren in America will live under socialism -- Our firm conviction is that sooner or later Capitalism will give way to Socialism. Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you.
The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman.
The most disregarded person in America is the black woman. The most unguarded individual in America is the black woman. The most overlooked person in America is the black woman.
Bolshevism is knocking at our gates, we can't afford to let it in...We must keep America whole and safe and unspoiled. We must keep the worker away from red literature and red ruses; we must see that his mind remains healthy.
Since my return to America my Master, has at the desire of my friends in England given me my freedom.
Since my return to America, my Master has, at the behest of my acquaintances in England, granted me emancipation.
As America is transformed from a 90 percent European American nation, as it was in the 1960s, to one where we will soon be a minority, should we not ask some pertinent questions. Is this racial diversity enriching, or will it be damaging to our social fabric?
Hillary Clinton has shown no indication whatsoever of stemming the tide of Islamic immigration, or stopping our mollycoddling, and pandering to Islam. These things are direct threats. Not just to culture, but to the lives of gay people in America.
In America, with all of its evils and faults, you can still reach through the forest and see the sun. But we don't know yet whether that sun is rising or setting for our country.
In America, with all of its blemishes and imperfections, you can still make out the glimmer of hope. Yet we are yet to discover if that light is a dawn or a dusk for our nation.
America doesn't respect anything but money. What our people need is a few millionaires.
Madam C. J. Walker
'America has a tendency to venerate wealth. What our populace needs are some affluent individuals.'
The people of the United States are one of the people I most admire in the world. The only thing I don't understand is why a country that manages to do so well cannot do better in choosing its president.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
That's the one issue can't discuss.You can discuss abortion back and forth, discuss gun control back and forth. But you can't have a dissenting opinion in America (politics) on Israel.
If he is terrorising the terrorists, if he is terrorising America the terrorist [...] I am with him. Every Muslim should be a terrorist.
If he is intimidating the extremists, if he is intimidating America the extremist [...] I am with him. Every Muslim should be a intimidator.
The future and success of America is not in this Constitution, but in the laws of God upon which this Constitution is founded.
The destiny and triumph of America is not enshrined in this Constitution, but rather rests upon the sacred decrees of God which this Constitution is based on.
Without enough wilderness America will change. Democracy, with its myriad personalities and increasing sophistication, must be fibred and vitalized by regular contact with outdoor growths - animals, trees, sun warmth and free skies - or it will dwindle and pale.
First, my people must be taught the knowledge of self. Then and only then will they be able to under-stand others and that which surrounds them. Anyone who does not have a knowledge of self is considered a victim of either amnesia or unconsciousness and is not very competent. The lack of knowledge of self is a prevailing condition among my people here in America. Gaining the knowledge of self makes us unite into a great unity. Knowledge of self makes you take on the great virtue of learning.
The majority of Western culture came out of Europe, which is not comparable to America. It came out of nation states based on geographical and ethnic foundations. America is based on principles, a very different kind of country.
Our struggle is a struggle to redeem the soul of America. It's not a struggle that lasts for a few days, a few weeks, a few months, or a few years. It is the struggle of a lifetime, more than one lifetime.
The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations And Religions; whom we shall wellcome to a participation of all our rights and previleges...
Let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and corporate leaders, on Wall Street and elsewhere, whose policies and greed are destroying the middle class of America.
Let us militate against the plutocrats and corporate elites, on Wall Street and beyond, whose decisions and avarice are devastating the middle class of America.
I had always hoped that this land might become a safe and agreeable asylum to the virtuous and persecuted part of mankind, to whatever nation they might belong.
I had always wished that this terrain could become a secure and pleasing refuge for the morally upright and oppressed people of the world, regardless of their nationality.
God has a special providence for fools, drunks, and the United States of America.
Otto von Bismarck
Divine guidance is bestowed upon the foolish, intoxicated, and United States of America.
The United States appear to be destined by Providence to plague America with misery in the name of liberty.
It appears that Fate has ordained the United States to afflict America with distress in the guise of freedom.
I am not afraid that the people called Methodists should ever cease to exist either in Europe or America. But I am afraid lest they should only exist as a dead sect, having the form of religion without the power. And this undoubtedly will be the case unless they hold fast both the doctrine, spirit, and discipline with which they first set out.
The anger that you see expressed out there in Los Angeles, in my district this evening, is a righteous anger, and it's difficult for me to say to the people, "Don't be angry." When people are angry and enraged, they do do senseless things. They do act even sometimes out of character, and that's why it is the responsibility of America to try and avoid putting people in these kinds of situations.
Let America be America, where equality is in the air we breathe.
Allow the United States to remain a nation of equal opportunity, where liberty is pervasive.
The rivalry is huge between South Carolina and Clemson. It's major bragging rights; one of the most intense things I've been a part of.
The competition between South Carolina and Clemson is immense. It's a source of great pride; one of the most fervent experiences I've been involved in.
Slavery has never been abolished from America's way of thinking.
Slavery has never been eradicated from America's mindset.
Everything has to be understood in opposition to something else. For some dang reason, the ego prefers to make one side better than the other, so we choose. And we decide males are better than females, America is better than Canada, Democrats are better than Republicans. And for most people, once this decision is made, it is amazing the amount of blindness they become capable of. They really don't see what's right in front of them. Once you see this, it's an amazing breakthrough, and that is the starting place for moving away from dualistic thinking.
The United States of America is a nation where people are not united because of those three glaring frailties: racism, injustices and inequities.
The United States of America is a nation where people are not unified due to the presence of racism, unfairness and disparities.
That's not a chip on my shoulder, that's your foot on my neck.
'Your oppressive boot on my throat is not to be mistaken for a grudge of mine.'
Have you ever noticed that the only metaphor we have in our public discourse for solving problems is to declare war on it? We have the war on crime, the war on
cancer, the war on drugs. But did you ever notice that we have no war on homelessness? You know why? Because there's no money in that problem. No money to be made off of the homeless. If you can find a solution to homelessness where the corporations and politicians can make a few million dollars each, you will see the streets of America begin to clear up pretty damn quick!
When I go around in America and I see the bulk of the white people, they do not feel oppressed; they feel powerless... and we understand the psychological genocide that they have already inflicted upon their own people.
But we know that freedom cannot be served by the devices of the tyrant. As it is an ancient truth that freedom cannot be legislated into existence, so it is no less obvious that freedom cannot be censored into existence. And any who act as if freedoms defenses are to be found in suppression and suspicion and fear confess a doctrine that is alien to America.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
It's time for America to get right.
Fannie Lou Hamer
It's high time for America to repair its course.
The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.
Alexis de Tocqueville
The American Republic will persist until the moment Congress realizes it can manipulate the people with their own resources.
The downward spiral of Dumbness in America is about to hit a new low.
Hunter S. Thompson
The abyss of Ignorance in America is on the brink of deepening.
I am the only one who can make America truly great again!
I am the only one who can bring America to its fullest potential!
Maybe they have nothing else to do in America but to talk about me.
Perhaps the people in America can find nothing better to converse about than myself.
America will tolerate the taking of a human life without giving it a second thought. But don't misuse a household pet.
America will accept the destruction of a human life without hesitation. But do not mistreat an ordinary pet.
