Atticus Finch to his daughter, "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee

"As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men
every day of your life,
but let me tell you something and don't you ever forget it -
whenever a white man does that to a black man,
no matter who he is, how rich he is,
or how fine a family he comes from,
that man is trash. ...
Don't fool yourselves, it's all adding up
and one day we're going to pay the bill for it."
