How to use negro in a sentence?

  1. James A. Garfield:

    ..remember that under our institutions there was no middle ground for the negro race between slavery and equal citizenship.

  2. Robert Dowlut:

    History teaches us the unfortunate lesson that cultural values supplant constitutional rights whenever the cultural elite consider a right too burdensome to suit the needs of the moment. The outlandish pronouncement in Dred Scott 'that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit,' the shameful court-approved internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, and the separate but equal doctrine that officially existed until 1954 are all examples of the evils that result when cultural values are given more weight than constitutional rights.

  3. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

    The Negro needs the white man to free him from his fears. The white man needs the Negro to free him from his guilt.

  4. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

    I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to 'order' than to justice who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice who constantly says 'I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action' who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for someone else's freedom who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a 'more convenient season.'

  5. Albert Einstein:

    Bias against the Negro is the worst disease from which the society of our nation suffers.
