I like this quotation from Ron Paul. He is basically saying that liberty and respect for the individual are the answer to racism, not big statist government schemes.
Here is the source of the quotation:

It’s always amazing to see people marching in the streets with confidence for a cause when they do not have all of the facts yet.
The world has come unglued over the awful death of Trayvon Martin via the gun of George Zimmerman.
And it seems that the world already knows that Zimmerman is a racist murderer.
Well, I don’t know. I won’t be marching for Zimmerman’s arrest.

Yet that is exactly what they – and scores of black leaders — are doing to an Hispanic individual named George Zimmerman. Along with a cast of thousands, they are holding him guilty of racism before the fact, justifying a hatred, as inflammatory as the hatred once spewed by southern crackers against blacks. [Read More]
