Repression, whether it be of the Negro, Catolic, Jew, or laborer, is the way of frightened power.
Frank Porter Graham (President of the University of North Carolina), 1938

quoted in Diane McWhorter, Carry Me Home: Birmingham, Alabama: The Climactic Battle of the Civil Rights Revolution (2001, with 2012 Afterword), p. 32.
