Mohandas

Gandhi wrote in 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.”

Gandhi also stated in his Indian Opinion newspaper, referring to a then-current issue in multiracial South Africa :

“The petition dwells upon ‘the co-mingling of the colored and white races.’ May we inform the members of the Conference that so far as British Indians are concerned, such a thing is particularly unknown. If there is one thing which the Indian cherishes more than any other, it is the purity of type.”

    Is it the Deicide hackers convention, or something?

  6. In arguing for the rights of Palestinians not to be displaced by Zionists he said that Palestine belongs to the Palestinians like "England belongs to the English". I like to quote that one.
