"Racism is a seed planted within the household that is nurtured by family members and peers and that soon spreads outside of the house and into the neighborhood, community and country. It is our job as leaders of a group, organization, or company to recognize racism and fire it.
"We can not, under any circumstance, put our head in the sand and think we would never hire a racist. The person you just hired might not be a part of a separatist group now, but that does not mean they will not be part of one [in the future]."
Chief Carmen Best Seattle Police Department (Retired)
