To kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird Quote

"Scout," said Atticus, "nigger-lover is just one of those terms that don't mean anything – like snot-nose. It's hard to explain – ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody's favoring Negroes over and above themselves. It's slipped into usage with some people like ourselves, when they want a common, ugly term to label somebody."


"You aren't really a nigger-lover, then, are you?"


"I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody... I'm hard put, sometimes – baby, it's never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn't hurt you."

Famous Racism Quote

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skins but the content of their character"

― Martin Luther King Jr., I Have A Dream
