Many young adults of mixed backgrounds are rejecting color lines that have defined Americans for generations.
Racism isn't born, folks, it's taught. I have a two-year-old son. You know what he hates? Naps! End of list. ~Dennis Leary
Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by color. ~Author Unknown
Racism is man's gravest threat to man - the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason.” Abraham J. Heschel
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everwhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes, And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of internatonal morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,but never attained...now everywhere is war." --Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War
