„It is better to die for an idea that will live, than to live for an idea that will die.“

—  Steve Biko
Quoted in Scott MacLeod, "South Africa: Extremes in Black and Whites" http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,975037,00.html, Time, March 9, 1992, p. 38<!--see also http://www.wordola.com/wusage/mcerwa/all.html--> Quoted in "The Mind of Black Africa" (1996) by Dickson A. Mungazi, p. 159

This is the extent to which the process of dehumanization has advanced. We Blacks

„The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.
So as a prelude whites must be made to realise that they are only human, not superior. Same with Blacks. They must be made to realise that they are also human, not inferior.“

—  Steve Biko
Context: Even today, we are still accused of racism. This is a mistake. We know that all interracial groups in South Africa are relationships in which whites are superior, blacks inferior. So as a prelude whites must be made to realize that they are only human, not superior. Same with blacks. They must be made to realize that they are also human, not inferior. Statement quoted in the Boston Globe (25 October 1977)
