Inviolable Principle

“We hold it as an inviolable principle that racism must be opposed by all the means that humanity has at its disposal. Wherever it occurs, it has the potential to result in a systematic and comprehensive denial of human rights to those who are discriminated against.” —From Mandela’s address at a special meeting of the United Nations Special Committee against Apartheid, Jun. 22, l990.
