Fresh Friday Quote: Harper Lee

Each Friday I will share a quote I appreciate. It might be long or short. It might be funny or thought provoking.

The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be he any color of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentments right into a jury box. As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it – whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.”

– Atticus Finch, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
