“ONE BUT MANY

One God, many faces.
One family, many races.
One truth, many paths.
One heart, many complexions.
One light, many reflections.
One world, many imperfections.
ONE.
We are all one,
But many.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Who are the lunatics? The ones who see horror in the heart of their fellow humans and search for peace at any price? Or the ones who pretend they don't see what's going on around them? The world belongs either to lunatics or hypocrites. There are no other races on this earth. You must choose which one to belong to.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Midnight Palace

“The human body resonates at the same frequency as Mother Earth. So instead of only focusing on trying to save the earth, which operates in congruence to our vibrations, I think it is more important to be one with each other. If you really want to remedy the earth, we have to mend mankind. And to unite mankind, we heal the Earth. That is the only way. Mother Earth will exist with or without us. Yet if she is sick, it is because mankind is sick and separated. And if our vibrations are bad, she reacts to it, as do all living creatures.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Understanding languages and other cultures builds bridges. It is the fastest way to bring the world closer together and to Truth. Through understanding, people will be able to see their similarities before differences.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“You are not white,
but a rainbow of colors.
You are not black,
but golden.
You are not just a nationality,
but a citizen of the world.
You are not just for the right or left,
but for what is right over the wrong.
You are not just rich or poor,
but always wealthy in the mind and heart.
You are not perfect, but flawed.
You are flawed, but you are just.
You may just be conscious human,
but you are also a magnificent
reflection of God.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Sentiments that glorify humanity know no racial distinction.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

Oswald Mosley
“Naturally we believe in our own race. Any man or woman worth anything believes in his own race as he believes in his own family. But because you believe in your own race or in your own family doesn't mean you want to injure other races or other families.”
Oswald Mosley

J. California Cooper
“Superior, do you understand me? These are white people. They are not like you, or me or us. They have the power to hurt you ... and sometimes it's fun to them when they do. Their power is not because they are smart ... it's because ... something happened sometime ... started somewhere and they got on top of the world. They got the power. The only power you got is to learn to live with them, learn to read their minds ... til you can do better. They don't treat each other right ... so don't you look to be treated right. You hear me? Sometimes there's good white people ... but don't you act like that til you know that.”
J. California Cooper, Some Soul to Keep

John Scalzi
“Colonization is the key to our race’s survival. It’s as simple as that. We must colonize or be closed off and contained by other races.”
John Scalzi, Old Man's War

Catherynne M. Valente
“Folk dress in all manner of finery and wonderful hats to go and watch the races, but only if it's horses doing the barreling that day. This, at least, is understandable, for horses, in secret, love hats more than any other creature. It is a horse's tragedy that they can never properly wear one.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All the Way Home

Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“In the biological sense, race does not exist.”

Maggie Stiefvater
“Boys", she says, "just aren't very good at being afraid.”
Maggie Stiefvater, The Scorpio Races

“But in view of the constitution, in the eye of the law, there is in this country no superior, dominant, ruling class of citizens. There is no caste here. Our constitution is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens. In respect of civil rights, all citizens are equal before the law. The humblest is the peer of the most powerful. The law regards man as man, and takes no account of his surroundings or of his color when his civil rights as guarantied by the supreme law of the land are involved.”
John Marshall Harlan

Enoch Powell
“It depends on how you define the word "racialist." If you mean being conscious of the differences between men and nations, and from that, races, then we are all racialists. However, if you mean a man who despises a human being because he belongs to another race, or a man who believes that one race is inherently superior to another, then the answer is emphatically "No".”
Enoch Powell

Toba Beta
“It is a science fact that some animals do dream.
It'll someday lead them to places better than zoo.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

“Races are won and lost long before the finish line.”
Marty Rubin

Maggie Stiefvater
“Neatness makes me feel like I have to be on my best behavior. Clutter is my natural habitat.”
Maggie Stiefvater, The Scorpio Races

“- Thirteen numbers applied to be on the face of the clock, and I hand selected each one.
- Selected them for what? Are there horse races for clock numbers?!
-Jarod Kintz and Stefan D”
Stefan D

“O Heavenly Children, God's messengers are as limitless as the fish in the sea. They come in all colors, regions, languages and creeds. But their message is one and the same, don't you see? He only wishes to unite all His children under one family tree.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Abhijit Naskar
“It is character that should be the sole measure of judgement in the society of thinking humanity, and nothing short of that would do.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

Abhijit Naskar
“If not as a true human, let me tell you as a Biologist, color of the skin does not define an individual’s intelligence – it does not define an individual’s ambitions - it does not define an individual’s dreams – and above all, it does not define an individual’s character.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

“We have disagreements as to what race does and ought to mean, but we have a remarkable consensus on what it is, without any ability to define it technically.”
Barbara Katz Rothman, Genetic Maps and Human Imaginations: The Limits of Science in Understanding Who We Are

“If you want to win the race be prepared to get off the starting blocks!”
Joy Maitland

Abhijit Naskar
“Call up the ever-pure, the effulgent and the ever-radiant character of true humanism in yourself and in others, and no racism shall have the power to thrive in such society even for a few seconds.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

“Dunia nzima kuna ubaguzi wa Ndani na Nje toka miaka mingi tuu”
Chrisper Malamsha

“The sure guaranty of the peace and security of each race is the clear, distinct, unconditional recognition by our governments, national and state, of every right that inheres in civil freedom, and of the equality before the law of all citizens of the United States, without regard to race. State enactments regulating the enjoyment of civil rights upon the basis of race, and cunningly devised to defeat legitimate results of the war, under the pretense of recognizing equality of rights, can have no other result than to render permanent peace impossible, and to keep alive a conflict of races, the continuance of which must do harm to all concerned.”
John Marshall Harlan

“Sixty millions of whites are in no danger from the presence here of eight millions of blacks. The destinies of the two races, in this country, are indissolubly linked together, and the interests of both require that the common government of all shall not permit the seeds of race hate to be planted under the sanction of law.”
John Marshall Harlan
