Injustice Quotes


When it comes to injustice quotes, Frederick Douglass perhaps said it best, “Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.” Injustice is not an absolute; rather it is merely a perception born out of a sense that we were not given our fair shake or that someone else got away with proverbial murder. Injustice quotes are meant to show us that indeed, life is unfair sometimes. However, the laws that protect us do work most of the time, and when true injustice does occur, the universe has a way of righting the wrong, one way or another. Reference.com Definition of Injustice

The Promised Land is the creation of a just society with an appreciation for the diversity of all humanity and equality for all." Joseph Anderson
