Public racism

Entry for Negro in the Encyclopaedia Britannica 1798:
"....differ far from other men in in all features... small ears, ugliness, and irregularity of shape, characterize their external appearance.... Vices the most notorious seem to be the portion of this unhappy race: idleness, treachery, venge, cruelty.. nastiness.... They are strangers to every sentiment of compassion, and are an awful example of the corruption of man when left to himself."

Haha oh my, seriously?!
Thank heavens for racisms diminish (at least publicly). We have come far in racist matters, let this be inspiration for the continuance of tolerance of all peoples and animals. We are all citizens of the earth after all.
