Heard this chilling quote when interviewing some of the first black soldiers in the US military branches during WW II.
EDIT: This quote isn't meant to compare the experience or to remove the horrors from the Holocaust but to show that while the Americans were trying to figure out how to treat a man who treated another race so poorly, they treated another race poorly as well. This quote is more than Hitler or the Holocaust, its about pointing out the civil inequality in America….
Spoken by Al Swearengen (Ian McShane) on the HBO show Deadwood.
This quote came to my mind after reading the comments in this JusticePorn thread. So many people demanding inhuman punishment which, in my opinion, is as sick as the crime those women commited. source
I think this novel is simply fantastic, so many profound quotations! Another one of my favourites (from the first few pages, in fact) is:
It would be interesting to know what men are most afraid of. Taking a new step, uttering a new word is what they fear the most.”
