“I don’t pretend to be any expert on communism or any other kind of a political ‘ism. But you can put me down as an expert at being a colored American, with thirty years of experience at it. And just like any other colored person with sense enough to look around him and understand what he sees, I know that life in these United States can be mighty tough for people who are a little different from the majority—in their skin color, or the way they worship God, or the way they spell their names.”

- Jackie Robinson, from his statement to the House Un-American Activities Committee (July 18, 1949)
