Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#1. Many American boys that fought in WWII had been sterilized under eugenic laws passed by the the United States Supreme Court under the 1927 case of Buck v. Bell. Over 80,000 Americans would be forcibly sterilized under that legal precedent. Coincidentally, Buck v Bell is also the legal precedent cited in Roe v. Wade, the famous abortion rights case. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan

Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan

Scientific Racism quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#4. A rare book at once of great importance and wonderful to read ... Gould presents a fascinating historical study of scientific racism, tracing it through monogeny and polygeny, phrenology , recapitulation, and hereditarian IQ theory. He stops at each point to illustrate both the logical inconsistencies of the theories and the prejudicially motivated, albeit unintentional, misuse of data in each case ... A major addition to the scientific literature. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#5. Some that read this book will find its Libertarian and Constitutionalist slant a bit obtuse and maybe even off-putting. This author makes no apologies for viewing the history of the eugenics movement from this political perspective. It is the ethical and legal underpinnings of the American Revolution that remain as a guiding light while the eugenics movement continues to reemerge long after its alleged demise. Limited, or rather minimal government, goes a long way to curtail the disconnect that emerges when government grows so large that it no longer feels compelled to heed to the dictates of the governed. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Scientific Racism quotes by Manisha Sinha
#6. Slaveholders deployed so-called scientific racism to justify racial slavery. #Quote by Manisha Sinha
Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#7. Churchill's 2,054 page book "Second World War" makes no mention of genocide or the murder of Jews. Coincidentally, Churchill was a strong proponent of eugenic legislation prior to the outbreak of WWII. #Quote by A.E. Samaan

Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan

Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan

Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#13. American newspapers frequently offered praise for eugenics just prior to WWII and The Holocaust .... that is, until Hitler revealed what eugenics really looked like. They avoided the subject for decades thereafter. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#14. Racists are everywhere, but historically speaking the real danger came from Progressives that desired the power of the state to engineer society upon a racial lines. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#15. DARWIN'S "SACRED CAUSE"?
Much ink has been dedicated to determining Charles Darwin's role in "scientific racism." The only way to empirically and scientifically determine his role is to organize the events as a timeline, and thus placing them into context of historical events. Political analysis without historical context is all sail and no rudder. In America we are constantly made aware that both Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born on the same day, in the same year, February 12, 1809. Adrian Desmond and James Moore famous 2009 book, "Darwin's Sacred Cause," leverages this factoid in an effort to place Charles Darwin at par with Abraham Lincoln in the abolition of slavery. This fraudulently steals away credit from Abraham Lincoln, who took a bullet to the head for the cause, and transfers it by inference to an aristocrat whom remained in his plush abode throughout the conflict and never lifted a finger for the cause. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#16. You cannot write an accurate history of The Holocaust without accounting for the Harvard students and professors that help make the science an acceptable world-wide movement. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#17. A "racist" thinks themselves better than other races. An "elitist" thinks they are better than everyone. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Scientific Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#18. The term "racist" comes from the word "racialist": Someone that sees the world from a racial prism. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Scientific Racism quotes by Walker Percy
#19. Having only learned to recognize merde when I see it, having inherited no more from my father than a good nose for merde, for every species of shit that flies
my only talent
smelling merde from every quarter, living in fact in the very century of merde, the great shithouse of scientific humanism where needs are satisfied, everyone becomes an anyone, a warm and creative person, and prospers like a dung beetle ... #Quote by Walker Percy
Scientific Racism quotes by Julian Huxley
#20. If I am to be remembered, I hope it will not be primarily for my specialized scientific work, but as a generalist; one to whom, enlarging Terence's words, nothing human and nothing in external nature was alien. #Quote by Julian Huxley
Scientific Racism quotes by Angie Thomas
#21. What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be? #Quote by Angie Thomas
Scientific Racism quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#22. but racism is about the power of a group and in America it's white folks who have that power. How? Well, white folks don't get treated like shit in upper-class African-American communities and white folks don't get denied bank loans or mortgages precisely because they are white and black juries don't give white criminals worse sentences than black criminals for the same crime and black police officers don't stop white folk for driving while white and black companies don't choose not to hire somebody because their name sounds white and black teachers don't tell white kids that they're not smart enough to be doctors and black politicians don't try some tricks to reduce the voting power of white folks through gerrymandering and advertising agencies don't say they can't use white models to advertise glamorous products because they are not considered "aspirational" by the "mainstream." So #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Scientific Racism quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#23. Some claim evolution is just a theory. As if it were merely an opinion. The theory of evolution, like the theory of gravity, is a scientific fact. Evolution really happened. Accepting our kinship with all life on Earth is not only solid science. In my view, it's also a soaring spiritual experience. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Scientific Racism quotes by Ibram X. Kendi
#24. White supremacists love what America used to be, even though America used to be - and still is - teeming with millions of struggling White people. White supremacists blame non-White people for the struggles of White people when any objective analysis of their plight primarily implicates the rich White Trumps they support. #Quote by Ibram X. Kendi
Scientific Racism quotes by Graham Allison
#25. To extend the digital metaphor, both rivals must also reconsider the fitness of their apps for the twenty-first century. In his book Civilization, Niall Ferguson identifies six 'killer apps' - ideas and institutions that drove the extraordinary divergence in prosperity between the West and the rest of the world after 1500. These are competition, the scientific revolution, property rights, modern medicine, consumer society, and work ethic. While noting China's great reconvergence with the West since 1970, Niall wonders if China can sustain its progress without killer app number three: secure private property rights. I worry that the American work ethic has lapsed into mediocrity, while its consumer society has become decadent. #Quote by Graham Allison
Scientific Racism quotes by Daniel Kalla
#26. Simon shook his head. 'The Nazis in Germany…the Japanese here in Shanghai…Treating people as less than human because of the shape of their faces or the sound of their names. Sometimes it feels like the whole damn world is unraveling. #Quote by Daniel Kalla
Scientific Racism quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#27. Whiteness in the press had positioned itself for too long as the self-appointed, self-referential arbiter of racial problems, in which it pondered why these black and brown communities were so prone to violence and poverty, without a shred of self-awareness. #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Scientific Racism quotes by Bernie Sanders
#28. What we have got to do immediately is to say that racism and xenophobia is totally unacceptable and we will stand with the 1 percent of our population who are Muslims, for undocumented people in this country. Absolutely, we will stand. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Scientific Racism quotes by Richard Lindzen
#29. When an issue becomes a vital part of a political agenda, as is the case with climate, then the politically desired position becomes a goal rather than a consequence of scientific research. #Quote by Richard Lindzen
Scientific Racism quotes by Robin DiAngelo
#30. Narratives of racial exceptionality obscure the reality of ongoing institutional white control while reinforcing ideologies of individualism and meritocracy. They also do whites a disservice by obscuring the white allies behind the scenes who worked hard and long to open the field. These allies could serve as much-needed role models for other whites. #Quote by Robin DiAngelo
Scientific Racism quotes by Aberjhani
#31. We were, each of us… at a crossroads of public and private dynamics which had brought us to this frame-worthy moment. I thought of the different currents and crosscurrents of history which had formed, merged, broken apart, and reformed to create the opportunity for us to give something essential to each other's lives. #Quote by Aberjhani
Scientific Racism quotes by Bertrand Russell
#32. If the West can claim superiority in anything, it is ... in science and scientific technique. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Scientific Racism quotes by Desmond Tutu
#33. Is Zionism racism? I would say yes. It's a policy that to me looks like it has very many parallels with racism. The effect is the same. Whether you call it that or not is in a sense irrelevant. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Scientific Racism quotes by Jodi Picoult
#34. There is a fire raging, and we have two choices: we can turn our backs, or we can try to fight it. Yes, talking about racism is hard to do, and yes, we stumble over the words - but we who are white need to have this discussion among ourselves. Because then, even more of us will overhear, and - I hope - the conversation will spread. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Scientific Racism quotes by Marie Curie
#35. I have frequently been questioned, especially by women, of how I could reconcile family life with a scientific career. Well, it has not been easy. #Quote by Marie Curie
Scientific Racism quotes by Abigail George
#36. War and peace. There are blurred lines in the realities of both. A separation anxiety as the paradigm shifts from the air that a sniper wears on his face (real life, entertainment for the masses or the propaganda machine you decide), to the blueprint of an assassination in a driveway (Chris Hani lying in a pool of his own blood). You know that we cannot eat stones but we can burn, butcher, necklace, murder, forcibly remove and displace entire families, races of different faiths in the name of apartheid. Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko and Chris Hani instruments of change, war, tolerance or peace. The Romantics got it right before anyone else did. Truth is beauty. The truth is South Africa is not cool anymore. #Quote by Abigail George
Scientific Racism quotes by Julian Bond
#37. Black reporters are as capable of racism as anyone else. #Quote by Julian Bond
Scientific Racism quotes by Nannie Helen Burroughs
#38. Anything that is as old as racism is in the blood line of the nation. It's not any superficial thing-that attitude is in the blood and we have to educate about it. #Quote by Nannie Helen Burroughs
Scientific Racism quotes by Haroutioun Bochnakian
#39. Until now, human organization could only be based upon something negative which could not be conquered: SCARCITY, and something false: PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY... No wonder instead of producing stability, it produced the exact opposite.
The current human organization based upon dealing with the consequences of scarcity and being considered responsible for our individual characteristics which we could never have chosen (our nature, our nurture, our "soul", and all the choices they engender), will always lead to an irrational, hence unstable human organization causing perpetual conflicts, which is no organization at all.

Today, we have the luxury to initiate a rational self-organization based upon two positives:
-our HUMAN CONSENSUS; our common desires shared by all, and
-the SCIENTIFIC PROJECT to achieve them. #Quote by Haroutioun Bochnakian
Scientific Racism quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#40. When we hide racism under the guise of 'humor,' we insulate white racist privilege and make a mockery of civil rights. #Quote by DaShanne Stokes
Scientific Racism quotes by Dan Brown
#41. Human intellect has always evolved by rejecting outdated information in favor of new truths... In Darwinian terms, a religion that ignores scientific facts and refuses to change its beliefs is like a fish stranded in a slowly drying pond refusing to flip into deeper water because it doesn't want to believe its world has changed. #Quote by Dan Brown
Scientific Racism quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#42. Freedom means equality. If you don't believe in equality for all, you don't believe in freedom. #Quote by DaShanne Stokes
Scientific Racism quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#43. Arabic, like Greek, had been a scientific language early on, #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Scientific Racism quotes by Angela Davis
#44. Feminism involves so much more than gender equality and it involves so much more than gender. Feminism must involve consciousness of capitalism (I mean the feminism that I relate to, and there are multiple feminisms, right). So it has to involve a consciousness of capitalism and racism and colonialism and post-colonialities, and ability and more genders than we can even imagine and more sexualities than we ever thought we could name. #Quote by Angela Davis
Scientific Racism quotes by David Brandon
#45. After Galileo, Einstein and even Freud, we try to hang onto a pathetic sort of significance on this planet and in this universe, that we are in some way more special than anything else. Our supreme arrogance that in some way the world was created for us has neither scientific nor spiritual reality. #Quote by David Brandon
Scientific Racism quotes by David Gergen
#46. How in heaven's name can a nation with a $1 trillion surplus threaten so much scientific research so vital to its future? #Quote by David Gergen
Scientific Racism quotes by Sarah Schulman
#47. Anti-violence politics, along with other revolutionary impulses, changed from a focus on working to transform patriarchy, racism, and poverty to cooperation and integration with the police. This has proven to be a significant turn because the police are, ironically, the embodiment of patriarchy, racism, and the enforcement of the US class system. John #Quote by Sarah Schulman
Scientific Racism quotes by Ruth Westheimer
#48. There is no scientific proof that any food increases sexual drive. #Quote by Ruth Westheimer
Scientific Racism quotes by Timothy Long
#49. Fear and ignorance are the key roots to racism. #Quote by Timothy Long
Scientific Racism quotes by Lisa Randall
#50. Scientific research involves going beyond the well-trodden and well-tested ideas and theories that form the core of scientific knowledge. During the time scientists are working things out, some results will be right, and others will be wrong. Over time, the right results will emerge. #Quote by Lisa Randall
Scientific Racism quotes by Mark M. Bello
#51. When a little black kid disappears and the media ignores it, so does the public. I know you know this. Not only that but how much media coverage a case gets has a direct relationship to how much manpower the brass assigns to solving that case. It also impacts whether or not the feds get involved. I know you know this too, dammit . . ."
". . . Lobby her on the other case at the same time, knock yourself out, but grant her an interview on Gilbert. Is that understood?"
"Loud and clear, boss. After all, we can't let a little thing like institutional racism get in our way, now, can we? #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Scientific Racism quotes by Lewis Mumford
#52. Less than a decade after the explosion of the first atom bomb the megamachine had expanded to a point where it began to dominate key areas of the whole economy of the United States: its system of control reached beyond the airfields, the rocket sites, the bomb factories, the universities, to a hundred other related areas, tying the once separate and independent enterprises to a central organization whose irrational and humanly subversive policies ensured the still further expansion of the megamachine. Financial subventions, research grants, educational subsidies, all worked unceasingly for the 'Life, Prosperity, Health' of the new rulers, headed by Goliaths in brass armor bellowing threats of defiance and destruction at the entire world. In a short time, the original military-industrial-scientific elite became the supreme Pentagon of Power, for it incorporated likewise both the bureaucratic and the educational establishments. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Scientific Racism quotes by Angela Y. Davis
#53. No amount of psychological therapy or group training can effectively address racism in this country, unless we also begin to dismantle the structures of racism. #Quote by Angela Y. Davis
