The use of violence in our struggle would be both impractical and immoral. To meet hate with retaliatory hate would do nothing but intensify the existence of evil in the universe.

Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding. Martin Luther King, Jr.
