You can’t legislate good will – that comes through education.
Man never legislates, but destinies and accidents, happening in all sorts of ways, legislate in all sorts of ways.
Social equity is based on justice; politics change on the opinion of the time. The black man’s skin will be a mark of social inferiority so long as white men are conceited, ignorant, unjust, and prejudiced. You cannot legislate these qualities out of the white – you must steal them out by teaching, illustration, and example.
Of course, you can’t legislate for how people are going to read.
I am proud to stand with the millions of women and men who recognize that our government should legislate according to the reality of our lives – not for ideology.
