Quotations by Ho Chi Minh

“It is well-known that the Black race is the most oppressed and the most exploited of the human family. It is well-known that the spread of capitalism and the discovery of the New World had as an immediate result the rebirth of slavery which was, for centuries, a scourge for the Negroes and a bitter disgrace for mankind. What everyone does not perhaps know is that after 65 years of so-called emancipation, American Negroes still endure atrocious moral and material sufferings, of which the most cruel and horrible is the custom of lynching.”

HO CHI MINH, “Lynching”, 1924

The Vietnamese people strongly support our Black brothers in America, for we believe their struggle is just and they shall overcome.

HO CHI MINH, “The Second Revolution in America”, 1966
