#1. The common goal of 22 million Afro-Americans is respect as human beings, the God-given right to be a human being. Our common goal is to obtain the human rights America has been denying us. We can never get civil rights in America until our human rights are first restored. We will never be recognized as citizens there until we are first recognized as humans. - Author: Malcolm X

Rights In America quotes by Mike Pence
#4. There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition. - Author: Umberto Eco
Rights In America quotes by Umberto Eco
#5. When the Crossfire paradigm loses its force, all that's left is a bunch of people with different views all sitting together in a room, wondering why they're all paying three bucks a gallon for gas, why they have no health insurance, why their tax rates are higher than Warren Buffet's. If we're all equally a bunch of suckers, how could any of us be worth hating? - Author: Matt Taibbi
Rights In America quotes by Matt Taibbi
#6. I explained that he was Chinese, and she asked if the movie would be in Chinese.
"No," I said, "he lives in America. In California. He's been there since he was a baby."
"Then what does it matter if he's Chinese?"
"Well," I said, "he's got ... you know, a sensibility. - Author: David Sedaris
Rights In America quotes by David Sedaris
#7. This is America, This vast, confused beauty, This staring, restless speed of loveliness, Mighty, overwhelming, crude, of all forms, Making grandeur out of profusion, Afraid of no incongruities, Sublime in its audacity, Bizarre breaker of moulds. - Author: Amy Lowell
Rights In America quotes by Amy Lowell
#8. We don't believe in a small America. We believe in a big America
a tolerant America, a just America, an equal America
that values the service of every patriot. - Author: Barack Obama
Rights In America quotes by Barack Obama
#9. For millennia, religions in general, and Jewish, Christian, and Islamic churches in particular, have had little problem with the forced enslavement of hundreds of millions of people. It was only after the Age of Reason and the Enlightenment that rational arguments were proffered for the abolition of the slave trade, influenced by and citing such secular documents as the American Declaration of Independence and the French Declaration of the Rights of Man. After an unconscionably long lag time, religion finally got on board the abolition train and became instrumental in helping to propel it forward. - Author: Michael Shermer
Rights In America quotes by Michael Shermer
#10. One would think America big enough to set aside wilderness preserves for the many of our citizens who seek to escape the incessant crowd, to search for solace in solitude amidst a sanctuary far removed from the banality of beer ads and cigarette commercials. - Author: Frank Church
Rights In America quotes by Frank Church
#11. The eyes of all people are upon us. And all they see is a mash-up of naked prisoners and an American girl in fatigues standing there giving a thumbs-up. As I write this, the United States of America is still a city on a hill; and it's still shining - because we never turn off the lights in our torture prisons. That's how we carry out the sleep deprivation. - Author: Sarah Vowell
Rights In America quotes by Sarah Vowell
#12. Because of the attitude of a few mental dinosaurs intent on exploiting our initial success, Brian's huge talent has never been fully appreciated in America and the potential of the group has been stifled ... If the Beatles had suffered this kind of misrepresentation, they would have never got past singing 'Please Please Me' and 'I WannaHold Your Hand' and leaping around in Beatle suits. - Author: Dennis Wilson
Rights In America quotes by Dennis Wilson
#13. In the '70s and '80s, the mentality of America was that everything was disposable. The notion of quality wasn't important. - Author: Les Wexner
Rights In America quotes by Les Wexner
#14. I live in a house over there on the Island, and in that house there is a man waiting for me. When he drove up at the door I drove out of the dock because he says I'm his ideal. - Author: F Scott Fitzgerald
Rights In America quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#15. Bad is that often wildlife trafficking is described as a "victimless" crime. Nothing could be further from the truth. Many of the trafficked items come from murdered animals; Rhinoceros Horn, Ivory and Tiger skins; and hundreds of thousands of birds and animals die in transit in the most horrible circumstances imaginable. Just because they cannot communicate with us does not mean they are not victims. They feel, fear and die, just like humans. - Author: Christopher Gerard
Rights In America quotes by Christopher Gerard
#16. Farewell, we must part; we have turned from the land
Of our cold-hearted brother, with tyrannous hand,
Who assumed all our rights as a favor to grant,
And whose smile ever covered the sting of a taunt;

Who breathed on the fame he was bound to defend -
Still the craftiest foe, 'neath the guise of a friend;
Who believed that our bosoms would bleed at a touch,
Yet could never believe he could goad them too much;

Whose conscience affects to be seared with our sin,
Yet is plastic to take all its benefits in;
The mote in our eye so enormous has grown,
That he never perceives there's a beam in his own. - Author: Frank Moore
Rights In America quotes by Frank Moore

Rights In America quotes by Carl Sandburg
#18. There's no reason that America should be No. 1 in obesity; we have the greatest country in the world. - Author: John Salley
Rights In America quotes by John Salley
#19. To my abusers, the act of setting appropriate boundaries was viewed as hostile aggression. They believed that I was denying them something that belonged to them if I resisted. I was a resource to be exploited for their personal use. I was property who didn't have any rights over my time, my energy, my body, or my possessions. I viewed myself that way too. I believed that they were justified in being angry with me for saying no but I wasn't justified in being angry with them for abusing me. - Author: Christina Enevoldsen
Rights In America quotes by Christina Enevoldsen
#20. I am sure that the dangers of this system (the Federal Constitution) are real, when those who have no similar interest with the people of this country (the South) are to legislate for us - when our dearest rights are to be left, in the hands of those, whose advantage it will be to infringe them. - Author: Patrick Henry
Rights In America quotes by Patrick Henry
#21. People who concern themselves with the rights of other adults who engage in consensual acts involving sex, love, and/or eating croissants together are damaged and in pain. - Author: Rob Delaney
Rights In America quotes by Rob Delaney
#22. Basically we could not have peace, or an atmosphere in which peace could grow, unless we recognized the rights of individual human beings ... their importance, their dignity ... and agreed that was the basic thing that had to be accepted throughout the world. - Author: Eleanor Roosevelt
Rights In America quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#23. Women and gay people are the litmus test of whether a society is democratic and respecting human rights. We are the canaries in the mine. - Author: Peter Tatchell
Rights In America quotes by Peter Tatchell
#24. What we have seen in recent years in the United States is the church's rights to express itself, and to conduct its own affairs, being insidiously eroded. - Author: Bruce L. Shelley
Rights In America quotes by Bruce L. Shelley
#25. Americans aren't good at accents, but the English are because their accents change. You go five or six blocks and the accent is different, so they are used to hearing different pitches. In America, you gotta travel maybe 10 states before you can really hear a difference. - Author: Nick Nolte
Rights In America quotes by Nick Nolte
#26. I thought the Made in America men's wear push was a big revolution in terms of smaller companies taking charge, but it seems like it's gotten out of control. - Author: Mark McNairy
Rights In America quotes by Mark McNairy
#27. American Wedding

In america,
I place my ring
on your cock
where it belongs.
No horsemen
bearing terror,
no soldiers of doom
will swoop in
and sweep us apart.
They're too busy
looting the land
to watch us.
They don't know
we need each other
critically.
They expect us to call in sick,
watch television all night,
die by our own hands.
They don't know
we are becoming powerful.
Every time we kiss
we confirm the new world coming.

What the rose whispers
before blooming
I vow to you.
I give you my heart,
a safe house.
I give you promises other than
milk, honey, liberty.
I assume you will always
be a free man with a dream.
In america,
place your ring
on my cock
where it belongs.
Long may we live
to free this dream. - Author: Essex Hemphill
Rights In America quotes by Essex Hemphill
#28. It may sound reactionary, I know. But we can all feel it. We've changed the way we think of ourselves as citizens. We don't think of ourselves as citizens in the old sense of being small parts of something larger and infinitely more important to which we have serious responsibilities. We do still think of ourselves as citizens in the sense of being beneficiaries
we're actually conscious of our rights as American citizens and the nation's responsibilities to us and ensuring we get our share of the American pie. We think of ourselves now as eaters of the pie instead of makers of the pie. So who makes the pie?
...
Something has happened where we've decided on a personal level that it's all right to abdicate our individual responsibility to the common good and let government worry about the common good while we all go about our individual self-interested business and struggle to gratify our various appetites. - Author: David Foster Wallace
Rights In America quotes by David Foster Wallace
#29. It's clear the CIA was trying to play 'keep away' with documents relevant to an investigation by their overseers in Congress, and that's a serious constitutional concern. But it's equally if not more concerning that we're seeing another 'Merkel Effect,' where an elected official does not care at all that the rights of millions of ordinary citizens are violated by our spies, but suddenly it's a scandal when a politician finds out the same thing happens to them. - Author: Edward Snowden
Rights In America quotes by Edward Snowden
#30. North Korea has the same ability to launch a nuclear strike against America as I do. It's like walking through a parking lot and getting barked at by a chihuahua locked in a car. - Author: Bill Maher
Rights In America quotes by Bill Maher
#31. For all they had suffered during those first terrible winters in America, their best years were behind them, in Leiden. Never again would they know the same rapturous sense of divine fellowship that had first launched them on this quest. - Author: Nathaniel Philbrick
Rights In America quotes by Nathaniel Philbrick
#32. This balance between the National and State governments ought to be dwelt on with peculiar attention, as it is of the utmost importance. It forms a double security to the people. If one encroaches on their rights they will find a powerful protection in the other. Indeed, they will both be prevented from overpassing their constitutional limits by a certain rivalship, which will ever subsist between them. - Author: Alexander Hamilton
Rights In America quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#33. If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare ... they may appoint teachers in every state ... The powers of Congress would subvert the very foundation, the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America. - Author: James Madison
Rights In America quotes by James Madison
#34. When I left America I understood the formation of public opinion in Southeast Asia. I had had the best course possible, taught by a famous Asian expert. Two minutes at Chulalongkorn taught me that I might just as profitably have studied the zither. - Author: Carol Hollinger
Rights In America quotes by Carol Hollinger
#35. I believe nothing happens by accident. My fame has happened for a reason. My fans are my kindred spirits in revolution. If anyone chooses to ignore the message or the messenger, they do so at their own risk. Believe it or not, there are many more people out there that understand what I am trying to do than society wants to admit. The way I live my life represents a much bigger part of America than anyone would care to imagine - Author: Marilyn Manson
Rights In America quotes by Marilyn Manson
#36. In its proper meaning equality before the law means the right to participate in the making of the laws by which one is governed, a constitution which guarantees democratic rights to all sections of the population, the right to approach the court for protection or relief in the case of the violation of rights guaranteed in the constitution, and the right to take part in the administration of justice as judges, magistrates, attorneys-general, law advisers and similar positions. - Author: Nelson Mandela
Rights In America quotes by Nelson Mandela
#37. History almost everywhere is tragic and ironic, but in America the contrasts are more stark because we set such high ideals. - Author: Rinker Buck
Rights In America quotes by Rinker Buck
#38. It is interesting that both Chicano and Puerto Rican art in the United States form an important part of the Civil Rights legacy and dialog. - Author: Mari Carmen Ramirez
Rights In America quotes by Mari Carmen Ramirez
#39. Going back to the moon is not visionary in restoring space leadership for America. Like its Apollo predecessor, it will prove to be a dead end littered with broken spacecraft, broken dreams and broken policies. - Author: Buzz Aldrin
Rights In America quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#40. As for America and the rest of European world, I want to live in a nation that reflects my traditions and values, and I do not want my people to become a minority in the nations my own forefathers built. Interestingly, that is same goal that most Israelis and most Jews who support Israel endorse for the Jewish state. - Author: David Duke
Rights In America quotes by David Duke
