Frederick Douglass: When neither persons nor property is safe


‎"The American people have this lesson to learn: That where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe."

– Frederick Douglass, "Southern Barbarism," speech on the occasion of the Twenty-Fourth Anniversary of Emancipation in the District of Columbia, Washington, D.C., April 16, 1886; "Frederick Douglass: Selected Speeches and Writings," (The Library of Black America series) edited by Philip S. Foner (1950) p. 696
