The positive value of anger is not limited to peace activists, but is relevant to all who work for social change. It may be argued that anger is the personal fuel in the social motor that resolves the institutional contradictions that arise in the course of history. As such. it applies to the activists who rid the world of slavery, and who moved the political economic systems from feudalism to capitalism and from capitalism to socialism, and who are fighting today to rid the world of racism and sexism.
-- David Adams

Our global community has come a long way in helping to eliminate discrimination, but we still have far to go.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

End Racism Day ... is a perfect opportunity to help our communities celebrate human unity and the diversity of the human race rather than allow our differences to become an excuse for racial separation.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

End Racism Day, officially known as The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, is a perfect opportunity to help our communities celebrate human unity and the diversity of the human race rather than allow our differences to become an excuse for racial separation. It's a chance to recognize prejudice, stereotypes and discrimination in our society, and how each of us may have our own prejudices and may be making people feel excluded without our even realizing it. It's a chance to reaffirm our commitment to eliminate all forms of discrimination and help create communities and societies where all citizens can live in dignity, equality and peace.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.

-- Dr. Ari Ariyaratne

* "It demands great spiritual resilience not to hate the hater whose foot is on your neck, and an even greater miracle of perception and charity not to teach your child to hate."
-- James Baldwin

"I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain."
-- James Baldwin

Everything now, we must assume, is in our hands; we have no right to assume otherwise. If we do not falter in our duty now, we may be able, handful that we are, to end the racial nightmare, and achieve our country, and change the history of the world.
-- James Baldwin

* Anti-Semitism has no historical, political and certainly no philosophical origins. Anti-Semitism is a disease.
-- Daniel Barenboim

I hope that my new status will be an example of Israeli-Palestinian co-existence, I believe that the destinies of the Israeli people and the Palestinian people are inextricably linked.
-- Daniel Barenboim

* If you want to address racial disparity in the juvenile justice system, everybody has to have a role in it. Everybody has some responsibility.
-- James Bell

* “Despite the threat of global terror hanging over all of us, there is only one path: to pursue the Millennium Development Goals with fresh resolve –confronting violence, bigotry and hatred with the same determination that we attack the causes from which they spring – conflict, ignorance, poverty and disease. The world we seek, where every child can grow to adulthood in health, peace and dignity – in short, a world fit for children – has remained a dream for more years than we can count. But we at UNICEF are convinced that working together with committed partners, and with an appropriate plan of action and a commitment to resources, we can make that dream a reality for each and every child on earth.”
-- Carol Bellamy

* “Racism is an ism to which everyone in the world today is exposed; for or against, we must take sides. And the history of the future will differ according to the decision which we make.”
-- Ruth Fulton Benedict

* If we accept and acquiesce in the face of discrimination, we accept the responsibility ourselves. We should, therefore, protest openly everything ... that smacks of discrimination or slander.

-- Pearl S. Buck

 

* At the heart of the problem is the fact that the United States is a racially divided nation where extreme racial inequalities continue to persist.
-- Robert Bullard

* Grassroots groups challenge the "business-as-usual" environmentalism that is generally practiced by the more privileged wildlife-and conservation-oriented groups. The focus of activists of color and their constituents reflects their life experiences of social, economic, and political disenfranchisement.
-- Robert Bullard

Prejudices are the chains forged by ignorance to keep men apart.
--Countess of Blessington

"Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom."
-- Merry Browne

* Sexual, racial, gender violence and other forms of discrimination and violence in a culture cannot be eliminated without changing culture.
--
Charlotte Bunch

* Man has but little heeded the advice of the wise men. He has been - fatefully, if not willingly - less virtuous, less constant, less rational, less peaceful than he knows how to be, than he is fully capable of being. He has been led astray from the ways of peace and brotherhood by his addiction to concepts and attitudes of narrow nationalism, racial and religious bigotry, greed and lust for power.
-- Ralph J. Bunche

There can be no assumption that today’s majority is “right” and the Amish or others like them are “wrong.” A way of life that is odd or even erratic but interferes with no right or interests of others is not to be condemned because it is different.
-- Justice Warren Burger

* The exploitation of women, mass hunger, disregard for freedom of conscience and for freedom of speech, widespread and racial discrimination -- all these evils are far too prevalent to be overlooked.
--
René Samuel Cassin

-- Noam Chomsky

Until then, each and every one of us would have to contribute - collectively and individually - to build peace through non-violence.
-- Anwarul Chowdhury

"We hate some persons because we do not know them; and will not know them because we hate them."
-- Charles Caleb Colton

~ Joseph Conrad

* "A white person listens to my act and he laughs and he thinks, 'Yeah, that's the way I see it too.' Okay. He's white. I'm Negro. And we both see things the same way. That must mean that we are alike..... So I figure I'm doing as much for good race relations as the next guy."
-- Bill Cosby

"Right-wing propagandists like Limbaugh and Coulter are essentially entertainers, entertainers who stimulate prejudice, selfishness and meanness the way a comedian works for laughs or a tragedian plays for tears. Theirs is a new art form, exclusive to America and bewilderingly successful. In place of traditional conservative ideology, they offer their audience partisan belligerence and a complete package of mail-order hatreds, designed for the conceptually and ethically impaired."
-- Hal Crowther

Racial, class and religious intolerance and prejudice are its mortal enemies."
-- Frederik W. de Klerk

Judgements prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.
-- Dr. Wanye W. Dyer
