Famous quotes containing the word race:

    Ethical and cultural desegregation. It is a contradiction in terms to scream race pride and equality while at the same time spurning Negro teachers and self-association.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    I cannot but conclude the bulk of your natives to be the most pernicious race of little, odious vermin that Nature ever suffered to crawl upon the surface of the earth.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    Before we shall again behold
    In his diurnal race the world’s great eye,
    We may as silent be and cold
    As are the shades where buried lovers lie.
    Sir William Davenant (1606–1668)
