本杰明·梅斯(Benjamin E. Mays)名言

Many well-meaning intelligent people have argued since the May 17, 1954, decision of the United States Supreme Court outlawing segregation in the public schools that communication between the races has broken down.

自1954年5月17日美国最高法院宣布公立学校种族隔离为非法以来,许多善意的聪明人认为种族间的交流已经中断。

本杰明·梅斯

For nearly a century, the South made itself believe that Negroes and white people were really communicating. So convinced of this were the white Southerners that they almost made the nation believe that they, and only they, knew the mind of the Southern Negro.

将近一个世纪以来,南方一直认为黑人和白人是真正的交流者。南方白人对此深信不疑,他们几乎使全国人民相信,只有他们知道南方黑人的思想。

It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture.

无法捕捉你的理想不是灾难,但没有理想捕捉是灾难。
