Quotes About African American Discrimination

Puerto Ricans are Americans. Weve been American citizens since 1917. We fought the same battles, made the same sacrifices. Weve lost our land in the same way that Native Americans lost their land, and weve been the subject of discrimination and racism in the same way that African Americans have. Weve suffered the full spectrum of oppression, and yet weve been off the map 4,000 miles away so we havent even been able to argue our case.
— Nelson Antonio Denis —

— Bernie Sanders

We have seen a man dragged to death in Texas simply because he was black. A young man murdered in Wyoming simply because he was gay. In the last year alone, we've seen the shootings of African Americans, Asian Americans, and Jewish children simply because of who they were. This is not the American way. We must draw the line. Without delay, we must pass the Hate Crimes Prevention Act and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. And we should reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act.

— William J. Clinton
