If Labels are for Clothes then Boxes are just for Gifts ~ Najma Hush
I think most people are more susceptible to prejudice than to reason.
Any deviation is looked upon as a perversion, is feared, and is usually a target of hatred and prejudice.
Because it equates tradition with prejudice, the left finds itself increasingly unable to converse with ordinary people in their common language.
Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood.
Coretta Scott King
People must realize that a crime motivated by racial or ethnic prejudice against one group is a crime against all of us.
Bigotry or prejudice in any form is more than a problem; it is a deep-seated evil within our society.
Everybody’s scared for their ass. There aren’t too many people ready to die for racism. They’ll kill for racism but they won’t die for racism.
Florynce R. Kennedy
Democratic forms of government are vulnerable to mass prejudice, the so-called tyranny of the majority.
I believe all Americans who believe in freedom, tolerance and human rights have a responsibility to oppose bigotry and prejudice based on sexual orientation.
Coretta Scott King
I try to support groups that are about educating people about different races, different religions, different cultures and different situations so that we can break down the barriers of prejudice and bigotry.
I was discriminated against because I was Jewish, Italian, black and Puerto Rican. But maybe the worst prejudice I experienced was against the poor. I grew up on welfare and often had to move in the middle of the night because we couldn’t pay the rent.
If we were to wake up some morning and find that everyone was the same race, creed and color, we would find some other causes for prejudice by noon.
Now spot who is prejudiced?
“We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.”
“It is the black heart of Islam, not the black face, to which millions object.”
“It [Islam] is a menace to all we in the West hold dear, and the time when anyone can pretend otherwise is almost at an end.”
“These elements have a negative effect on all of public security. They are strengthened demographically both by natural reproduction and by immigration, which reinforces their stubborn ethnic segregation, their domineering nature. This is the world of Islam in all its aberrations.”
Jean-Marie Le Pen
“Most of the Muslims reaching the U.S. refuse to learn our language and take over our neighborhoods with their codes of dress and education. Then, they pressure the residents, as they did in Dearborn, Michigan, to leave by razing the churches and putting mosques in their places, displacing the local delis with Middle Eastern food. The Arabic signs go up and another neighborhood bites the dust. Now, everyone can be serenaded five times a day with loudspeakers calling them to prayer. Fast learners, they are now armed with the knowledge of how to beat us with bullets and ballots.”
