Everywhere is War . . .

November 25, 2014

“That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned;

That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation;

That until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes;

That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race;

That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained…”

H.I.M. Haile Selassie I, Ras Tafari
Oct. 6 1963 to the United Nations General Assembly.
