Race City

Famous quotes containing the words race and/or city:

    ...I am an abolitionist for the sake of my own race—Contact with the African degenerates our white race—I find the association with them injurious to my child—keenly as I watch to prevent it & his faithful nurse to help me ... She is a good woman & so are many of them—Still the race is a degraded one ...
    Elizabeth Blair Lee (1818–?)

    I’m darned if I understand you city folks. Always rushing, rushing. Always thinking about the future. No wonder you have stomach trouble.
    James Poe (1921–1980)
