“You don’t have to teach people how to be human. You have to teach them how to stop being inhuman.”
– Eldridge Cleaver
“I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being, first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”
– Malcolm X
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
– Martin Luther King
Justice is expensive. That is why there is so little
of it, and it is reserved those few with enough
money and influence to afford it.
Is there equality before the law? At every stage of the judicial
process–facing the policeman, appearing in court, being freed
on bond, being sentenced by the judge–the poor person is
treated worse than the rich, the black treated worse than the
white, the politically or personally odd character is treated
worse than the orthodox.
— Howard Zinn
