Examples of racial in a Sentence

  1. Daniel Smith:

    If you move, you may not even get your ballot, and we know younger voters, racial, ethnic minorities, lower-income voters tend to move more. That's certainly been the case with the pandemic. That's going to raise a problem with you getting your ballot in the first place.

  2. Hillary Clinton:

    All of us want a safe community, so we should be smart enough how we can provide that safety without intentionally or unintentionally targeting a particular group of Americans, and what is so, really, troubling, is that if you compare statistics between white men and African American men, if they are stopped, if they are arrested, if they are charged, if they are convicted, if they are sentenced, there are clear undeniable racial disparities. I think we have to admit this. We shouldn't try to gloss it over or it would go away.

  3. Bernie Sanders:

    If on Super Tuesday we can bring out working people, and young people, people who have given up on the political process, people of all shades who believe in economic justice, social justice, racial justice, environmental justice -- if we can create a large voter turnout -- we're going to win Democratic primary a week from Super Tuesday.

  4. Jared Taylor:

    The number of young whites who are waking up to racial reality is unprecedented, it is happening now because it's much easier for a young person to find an alternative point of view. All they need to do is find an Internet site, just a few clicks away, that explains in very clear terms what they might have been feeling in an inchoate way, but has never been expressed clearly for them.

  5. John Kennedy, Autobiography of malcolm x:

    Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of our racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.
