QUOTA of QUOTES
“This means that you believe in merit, that you get ahead in this country, not on the color of your skin, but on the content of your character and your contributions.”—Republican presidential candidate and biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, telling attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., that he will get rid of affirmative action if he’s elected president.
“I want the marginalized community to be able to say, ‘We have our own media, we report on all kinds of stories and we raise issues that haven’t been raised until today.’”— Dalit journalist Meena Kotwal, founder of The Mooknayak, an online news outlet that covers marginalized groups in India. (The New York Times)
“There are a lot of political pundits who want to talk about this race. I can tell you some things I know are facts. The polls that you see today, will not be the polls you see a year from now. They will be different.”—Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley, expressing optimism that she will catch up with front-runners Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis before next year’s primaries.
