"I have given my life to alleviate the sufferings of Africa. There is something that all White men who have lived here like I have must learn and know: that these individuals are a sub-race."

"They have neither the mental or emotional abilities to equate or share equally with White men in any functions of our civilization. I have given my life to try to bring unto them the advantages which our civilization must offer, but I have become well aware that we must retain this status: White the superior, and they the inferior."

"For whenever a White man seeks to live among them as their equals, they will destroy and devour him, and they will destroy all his work. And so for any existing relationship or any benefit to this people, let White men, from anywhere in the world, who could come to help Africa, remember that you must maintain this status: you the master and they the inferior, like children whom you would help or teach."

"Never fraternize with them as equals. Never accept them as your social equals or they will devour you. They will destroy you." Dr. Albert Schweitzer, From My African Notebook.


Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate, than that these people are to be free.”  Inscribed on the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC. Referring to the slaves.

'Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate, than that these people are to be free; nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government.' Thomas Jefferson's actual words.


"It will probably be asked, why not retain and incorporate the Blacks into the state, and thus save the expence of supplying, by importation of White settlers, the vacancies they will leave? Deep rooted prejudices entertained by the Whites; ten thousand recollections, by the Blacks, of the injuries they have sustained; new provocations; the real distinctions which nature has made; and many other circumstances, will divide us into parties, and produce convulsions which will probably never end but in the extermination of one or the other race. To these objections, which are political, may be added others, which are physical and moral." Query XIV, "Notes on the State of Virginia" 1781, Thomas Jefferson.


"Why should the people of your race be colonized, and where? Why should they leave this country? This is, perhaps, the first question for proper consideration. You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word, we suffer on each side. If this be admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated. It is better for both, therefore, to be separated." Abraham Lincoln speaking to a group of Black community leaders at the White House on August 14th, 1862


"In recent times it has been fashionable to talk of the leveling of nations, of the disappearance of different races in the melting pot of contemporary civilization. I do not agree with this opinion, but its discussion remains another question. Here it is merely fitting to say that the disappearance of nations would impoverish us no less than if all men had become alike, with one personality, one face. Nations are the wealth of mankind, its collective personalities; the very least of them wears its own special colors and bears within itself a special facet of God’s design." Alexander Solzhenitsyn, 1970


"The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, or preventing all possibility of its continuing as a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities." President Teddy Roosevelt

"Toward all other nations, large and small, our attitude must be one of cordial and sincere friendship. We must show not only in our words, but in our deeds, that we are earnestly desirous of securing their goodwill by acting toward them in a spirit of just and generous recognition of all their rights." President Teddy Roosevelt

CPD comment. I read where someone implied that the previous two quotes are contradictory. They are not. We should be cordial and respect others’ rights but we must also understand our right to maintain our nations ethnic makeup as we want.


The following quotes by Mahatma Gandhi reveal a seldom seen aspect of this great man. I am not trying to denigrate him; I actually gained more respect for him after reading it. Rather than covering up to make Gandhi fit into today’s warped, politically correct world, we should change our way of thinking.

Mahatma Gandhi was born in India, studied to become an attorney in England,
spent many years "organizing passive resistance" in South Africa, and then
returned to India to lead the passive resistance movement against British rule. He was finally assassinated by one of his own people. This collection of quotes is from his time in South Africa. The terms native and Kaffir refer to the indigenous people of South Africa.

The Indian Opinion published an editorial on September 9 1905 under the
heading, "The relative Value of the Natives and the Indians in Natal". In it,
Gandhi referred to a speech made by Rev. Dube, an early African nationalist, who
said that an African had the capacity for improvement, if only the Whites would
give them the opportunity. In his response, Gandhi suggested that:

"A little judicious extra taxation would do no harm; in the majority of cases
it compels the native to work for at least a few days a year."

Then he added:

"Now let us turn our attention to another and entirely unrepresented
community - the Indian. He is in striking contrast with the native. While the native has been of little benefit to the State, it owes its prosperity largely to the Indians. While native loafers abound on every side, that species of humanity is almost unknown among Indians here."

"The Natives in our hands proved to be most unreliable and obstinate. Without constant attention, they would as soon have dropped the wounded man as not, and they seemed to bestow no care on their suffering countryman." MK Gandhi, "Memoirs of the Indian Stretcher Bearer Corps," as published in Indian Opinion, 28-7-1906

GANDHI AND RACE

Gandhi was, despite modern propaganda, acutely aware of the differences
between races, as this letter to W.T. Stead, an English friend of his in London,
written in 1906, clearly shows:

As you were good enough to show very great sympathy with the cause of
British Indians in the Transvaal, may I suggest your using your influence with the Boer leaders in the Transvaal? I feel certain that they did not share the same prejudice against British Indians as against the Kaffir races but as the
prejudice against Kaffir races in a strong form was in existence in the Transvaal at the time when the British Indians immigrated there, the latter were immediately lumped together with the Kaffir races and described under the generic term "Coloured people". Gradually the Boer mind was habituated to this qualification and it refused to recognize the evident and sharp distinctions that undoubtedly exist between British Indians and the Kaffir races in South Africa."

Writing about a law which was designed to restrict Indian movement in the
British Cape Colony, Gandhi objected on the basis that it dragged Indians "down
with the Kaffir(s)." He wrote:

The bye-law has its origin in the alleged or real, impudent and, in some
cases, indecent behaviour of the Kaffirs. But, whatever the charges are against the British Indians, no one has ever whispered that the Indians behave
otherwise than as decent men. But, as it is the wont in this part of the world, they have been dragged down with the Kaffir without the slightest justification." MK Gandhi, The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi, Volume III, page 285

In the Government Gazette of Natal for Feb. 28 1905, a Bill was published
regulating the use of fire-arms by Blacks and Indians. Commenting on the Bill,
Gandhi wrote in his newspaper, the Indian Opinion on March 25 1905:

"In this instance of the fire-arms, the Asiatic has been most improperly
bracketed with the natives. The British Indian does not need any such restrictions as are imposed by the Bill on the natives regarding the carrying of
fire-arms. The prominent race can remain so by preventing the native from arming himself. Is there a slightest vestige of justification for so preventing the British Indian?"

Gandhi, like many caste conscious Indians (he was born to a fairly high shop
owner caste) was all in favor of segregation from the Blacks. His reaction to
a 1906 petition launched by non-Whites in South Africa to the British King,
demanding voting rights, reveals this attitude clearly (from MK Gandhi, Indian Opinion, 24 March 1906):

"It seems that the petition is being widely circulated, and signatures are
being taken of all colored people in the three colonies named. The petition is
non-Indian in character, although British Indians, being colored people, are
very largely affected by it. We consider that it was a wise policy on the part
of the British Indians throughout South Africa, to have kept themselves apart
and distinct from the other colored communities in this country."


THE FAMOUS TRAIN INCIDENT

In the Hollywood film made about Gandhi, much emphasis was placed on a scene
where he was arrested for riding in a South African train coach reserved for
Whites. This incident did indeed occur, but for very different reasons than
those the film portrayed!

For the liberal myth is that Gandhi was protesting at the exclusion of
non-Whites from the train coach: in fact, he was trying to persuade the authorities
to let ONLY upper caste Indians ride with the Whites. It was NEVER Gandhi's intention to let Blacks, or even lower Caste Indians, to share the White compartment!

Here, in Gandhi's own words, are his comments on this famous incident,
complete with reference to upper caste Indians, who he differentiated from lower
caste Indians by calling the former "clean":

"You say that the magistrate's decision is unsatisfactory because it would
enable a person, however unclean, to travel by a tram, and that even the Kaffirs would be able to do so. But the magistrate's decision is quite different. The Court declared that the Kaffirs have no legal right to travel by tram. And
according to tram regulations, those in an unclean dress or in a drunken state
are prohibited from boarding a tram. Thanks to the Court's decision, only clean Indians or colored people other than Kaffirs, can now travel in the trams."


GANDHI SUPPORTED SEGREGATION

It is also a myth to presume that Gandhi was opposed to racial segregation.
Witness this piece of his writing, published in his newspaper, Indian Opinion,
of 15 February 1905. It was a letter to the White Johannesburg Medical Officer
of Health, a Dr. Porter, concerning the fact that Blacks had been allowed to
settle in an Indian residential area:

"Why, of all places in Johannesburg, the Indian location should be chosen for
dumping down all Kaffirs of the town, passes my comprehension. Of course,
under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the
Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population, and it is an
undue tax on even the proverbial patience of my countrymen."


GANDHI'S SUPPORT FOR 'PURITY OF RACE'

In response to the rise of White nationalist politics, which stressed racial
separation, Gandhi wrote in his Indian Opinion of 24 September 1903:

"We believe as much in the purity of race as we think they do, only we
believe that they would best serve these interests, which are as dear to us as to them, by advocating the purity of all races, and not one alone. We believe also that the white race of South Africa should be the predominating race."
