Mixed Race

Famous quotes containing the words mixed and/or race:

    Mrs. Finney: Can’t we have some peace in this house, even on New Year’s Eve?
    Sadie: You got it mixed up with Christmas. New Year’s Eve is when people go back to killing each other.
    Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1909–1993)

    I’ve always wondered why European politicians as a group seemed brighter than American politicians as a group. Maybe it’s because many American politicians have the race issue to fall back on. They become lazy, suspicious of innovative ideas, and as a result American institutions atrophy.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
