Martin Luther King, Jr. Quote
Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race.... 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 to feel remorse for this shameful episode.
Why we can't wait (ed. Signet, 1964)
