Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

Haile Selassie

The right to development is the measure of the respect of all other human rights.That should be our aim: a situation in which all individuals are enabled to maximize their potential, and to contribute to the evolution of society as a whole.
-- Kofi Annan

"Everyone has a right to peaceful coexistence, the basic personal freedoms, the alleviation of suffering, and the opportunity to lead a productive life..."
-- Jimmy Carter

We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers. Our abundance has brought us neither peace of mind nor serenity of spirit.

I support Native American rights and privileges, and as a visitor to ABQ became aware of this issue at the University. I also believe that the Washington football team name and symbol are racial slurs, unlike too many of their fans, and defend the legitimate efforts to try to change them. What the fans want is totally irrelevant!

New Mexico is supposed to be a less racist state than many, partly because of the varied cultures. It is deplorable that UNM ever had such a disgusting logo, and worse that nothing is being done to correct the continued racism. We must learn respect.

Because the Indians have suffered enough at the hands of the white invaders. We need to honor and help them so we can all live together in harmony and not leave them suffering on god forsaken reservations. The Spaniards and the White man slaughtered them.

These symbols must be as offensive to Native Americans as a Nazi swastika is to me, a Jewish American.
