Lest we forget, while we move towards justice...

"How are we astonished...when we reflect that to the race of negroes, at present our slaves, and the object of our contempt, we owe our arts, sciences, and...when we recollect that, in the midst of these nations, who call themselves the friends of liberty and humanity, the most barbarous of slaveries is justified; at that is even a problem whether the misunderstandings of negroes be of the same species with that of the white man." ---Count Constantin François de Chassebœuf, comte de Volney
