Skin Quotations

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Black skin is not a badge of shame, but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness.
Marcus Garvey

Horror is the future. And you cannot be afraid. You must push everything to the absolute limit, or else life will be boring. People will be boring. Horror is like a serpent: always shedding its skin, always changing. And it will always come back. It can't be hidden away like the guilty secrets we try to keep in our subconscious.
Dario Argento

There should be no discrimination against languages people speak, skin color, or religion.
Malala Yousafzai

Samuel Ullman
