“During the last war, the chief hope of our enemies was to divide the United States along racial and religious lines and thereby conquer it. Let’s not spread prejudice. A divided America is a weak America and we need the same harmony among our various racial and religious groups that was the source of our strength in war.
Through our behavior, we encourage the respect of our children and make them better neighbors to all races and religions. Remind them that being good neighbors has helped make our country great and kept her free.”
- Comedian Jack Benny at the conclusion of his radio show of February 9, 1947
