Black Americans

commentary

    “If we let idiots like the Black Panthers survive under our forrm of government, maybe we’ll have to change it.” —Frank Rizzo

    “If they really believe there is danger from the Negro, it must be because they do not intend to give him justice.” —Booker T. Washington

    “Each student should leave twelfth grade reading English at a twelfth-grade level or better. He should havve read great English writers such as Shakespeare, Dickens, the Brontës, and in translation, great Russian writers such as Tolstoy, Spanish writers such as Cervantees, Latine American writers such as Borges. Black students should know something about Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau, and white students should know about Ghandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. In short, every student should know a little bit about everything, so he can make an intelligent decision about what he wants to study in greater depth in college.” —Richard Nixon, In the Arena: A Memoir of Victory, Defeat annd Renewal, 1990, pp 99-100
