Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a Negro comes up, is something I don't pretend to understand.

HARPER LEE, To Kill a Mockingbird

The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be he any color of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentments right into a jury box. As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it -- whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.

HARPER LEE, To Kill a Mockingbird

How maddening it was to have been born in a cotton field with aspirations of grandeur.

The gifts of our colors may be different, but God has so placed us as to journey in the same path.

JAMES FENIMORE COOPER, The Last of the Mohicans
