Text Quotes
I majored in Southern history in college, and much of my early work at my first job - as a staff writer at ‘Memphis’ magazine - focused on race relations.  (Race Relations Quotes) Here’s the thing. When we talk about race relations in America or racial progress, it’s all nonsense. There are no race relations. White people were crazy. Now they’re not as crazy. To say that black people have made progress would be to say they deserve what happened to them before  (Race Relations Quotes) When I was trained as a journalist, as a race-relations reporter in Nashville covering the end of the civil-rights movement, we were strictly forbidden to use the first-person pronoun. There was kind of an electric charge around it. To come out from hiding and use the word ‘I’ carried a lot of fright for me  (Race Relations Quotes) The changes in thinking about same-sex marriage have come slowly at first and then in rapid course. If such change is possible in this area, is it also possible in the vexed and sordid realm of race relations?  (Race Relations Quotes) There was never a promise that race relations in America would be entirely resolved during my presidency or anybody’s presidency. I mean, this has been a running thread - and - and fault line in American life and American politics since its founding  (Race Relations Quotes) ... in 1950 a very large slice of the white South stood at the crossroads in its attitude toward its colored citizens and [was] psychologically capable of turning either way  (Race Relations Quotes) Hip hop culture has done more for race relations in American than anything since Martin Luther King. And I really believe that  (Race Relations Quotes) I think there’s a lot of shame in American race relations. There’s a lot of suppressed guilt that lashes itself out still. I see that all the time, and whereas opposed to sort of trying to address the issue in an up-front way, they’re attacking and thus perpetuating the problem thinking that they’re being sophisticated and post-racial, when, in fact, they’re being completely regressive  (Race Relations Quotes) I have compromised down the line. I’ve disliked it intensely in the old days when you were trying to talk race relations and they would not allow you to talk about the legitimacies of race relations. In the old days, you didn’t talk about black, you talked about Eskimo or American Indian, and the American Indian was assumed not to be a problem area  (Race Relations Quotes) It’s a weird scene. You win a few baseball games and all of a sudden you’re surrounded by reporters and TV men with cameras asking you about Vietnam and race relations.  (Race Relations Quotes) Sabotage did not involve loss of life, and it offered the best hope for future race relations. Bitterness would be kept to a minimum and, if the policy bore fruit, democratic government could become a reality.  (Race Relations Quotes) The 1950s felt so safe and smug, the 60s so raw and raucous, the revolutions stacked one on top of another, in race relations, gender roles, generational conflict, the clash of church and state - so many values and vanities tossed on the bonfire, and no one had a concordance to explain why it was all happening at once.  (Race Relations Quotes) People are very comfortable when race relations get looked at retrospectively. Slavery, the civil rights movement, etc.  (Race Relations Quotes) Yes, ‘Black Girl/White Girl’ might be described as a ‘coming-of-age’ novel, at least for the survivor Genna. It is also intended as a comment on race relations in America more generally: we are ‘roommates’ with one another, but how well do we know one another?  (Race Relations Quotes) Much of the social history of the Western world over the past three decades has involved replacing what worked with what sounded good. In area after area - crime, education, housing, race relations - the situation has gotten worse after the bright new theories were put into operation. The amazing thing is that this history of failure and disaster has neither discouraged the social engineers nor discredited them  (Race Relations Quotes) Hip-hop has done so much for racial relations, and I don’t think it’s given the proper credit. It has changed America immensely. I’m going to make a very bold statement: Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations  (Race Relations Quotes) It’s not easy to be a martyr in the field of race relations  (Race Relations Quotes) The history of race relations in America is very different than something like the Holocaust  (Race Relations Quotes) When Thurgood Marshall became a lawyer, race relations in the United States were particularly bad  (Race Relations Quotes) What we are working for is an educational program that has become a resource and rallying point for scores of brave southerners who are leading the fight for justice and better race relations in these crucial days  (Race Relations Quotes) A white person who claims to have no impediment of vision in this country is not, I think, telling the whole truth. And when it comes to race relations, not telling the whole truth about the fog one inhabits slows down the work of groping forward  (Race Relations Quotes) I think it’s sinful to give the audience material it knows already, whether the material is about race relations or the car culture or the depiction and placement of a candy bar  (Race Relations Quotes) The country has come a long way in race relations, but the pendulum swings so far back.

If we use the issue appropriately, we can transform it from the cancer of our society into the cure  (Race Relations Quotes)
