Haïlé Sélassié Ier, le 6 octobre 1963

à l’Assemblée Générale de l’Organisation des Nations Unies, New York City.

Haïlé Sélassié Ier (wikipedia)

“Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained… now everywhere is war.”

Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War:
