Albert Memmi
Racism... is the highest expression of the colonial system and one of the most significant features of the colonialist.
Memmi quotes
Racism rests upon and functions as a kind of seesaw: the persecutor rises by debasing and inferiorizing his victim.
There is a strange kind of tragic enigma associated with the problem of racism. No one, or almost no one, wishes to see themselves as racist; still racism persists, real and tenacious.

Memmi Albert quotes
Racism does not limit itself to biology or economics or psychology or metaphysics; it attacks along many fronts and in many forms, deploying whatever is at hand, and even what is not, inventing when the need arises.
