"Racial understanding, racial sympathy, is the key to permanent WORLD PEACE." – J.A. Rogers, Sex & Race Vol. 1 (1952)
“[I]f we are extremists we’re not ashamed of it. In fact, the conditions that our people suffer are extreme and an extreme illness cannot be cured with a moderate medicine. We’re not against physical migration of our people back to Africa. Those who want to go back and have something to contribute to the development of Africa, we are for them, because we feel a strong Africa makes us strong also. To the same degree Africa is independent and respected we are independent and respected, but to the degree we are disrespected the Africans are also disrespected. Our origin is the same and our destiny is the same, whether we like it or not.” — Malcolm X
