QUOTA of QUOTES “Today we say to the more than 600,000 Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, and Jain Americans, we see you. Today we say to the families of India, Guyana, Trinidad, Nepal, and Bangladesh, we recognize you.”—New York Assembly woman Jenifer Rajkumar, joining New York City Mayor Eric Adams as he officially declared Diwali as a school holiday.









“It’s sad that this is how the MSM (mainstream media) views Republicans. I’ve met with grassroots conservatives across America & never *once* experienced the kind of bigotry that I regularly see from the Left.”—Tweet from presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, responding to a cartoon in an Iowa newspaper that portrayed MAGA voters hurling racist epithets at him.







“Picking winners and losers based on race is fundamentally wrong. This decision will help every student—no matter their background—have a better opportunity to achieve the American Dream.”— Presidential candidate and former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, on the Supreme Court’s ruling against race-conscious admissions programs at colleges and universities.








“It rolls back longestablished precedent and will make it more difficult for students from underrepresented backgrounds to have access to opportunities that will help them fulfill their full potential.”—Vice-president Kamala Harris, assailing the Supreme Court decision.
