WWRJ – Catholic Social Teaching
The heart of the race question is moral and religious. It concerns the rights of [all] and our attitude toward our fellow [human beings]. If our attitude is governed by the great Christian law of love thy neighbor and respect for [everyone’s] rights, then we can work out harmoniously the techniques for making legal, educational, economic, and social adjustments. But if our hearts are poisoned by hatred, or even by indifference toward the welfare and rights of our fellow [human beings], then our nation faces a grave and internal crisis.
