Stephen Jay Gould
(Stephen Jay Gould (1941–2002) was 'n evolusionis en Marxis, maar ook 'n anti-rasis.)

Biological arguments for racism may have been common before 1850, but they increased by orders of magnitude following the acceptance of evolutionary theory.

(Uit Stephen Jay Gould on Racism)

James Watson

"[I am] inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa" because "all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – whereas all the testing says not really", and I know that this “hot potato” is going to be difficult to address. His hope is that everyone is equal, but he counters that “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”. He says that you should not discriminate on the basis of colour, because “there are many people of colour who are very talented, but don’t promote them when they haven’t succeeded at the lower level”.  “there is no firm reason to anticipate that the intellectual capacities of peoples geographically separated in their evolution should prove to have evolved identically. Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so.”

Adolf Eichmann
(Hy was bekend as Hitler se laksman en was direk of indirek vir oor die vyf miljoen Jode se dood verantwoordelik.)

"Both the churches in Germany, the Catholic and the Protestant, believe in Theistic Evolution. Both of them believe that God’s method of creation was to wipe out the handicapped and to wipe out the less fitted. And as the Jews are less fitted than our people, I have only helped God in his methods. I have only catalyzed God’s way of working. And when I meet God I shall tell Him so."

"Beide die kerke in Duitsland, die Katolieke en Protestante, glo in teïstiese evolusie. Beide glo dat God se metode van skepping was om die gestremdes en die minder geskiktes uit te wis. En omdat die Jode minder geskik was as ons mense, het ek maar net vir God gehelp met sy metodes. Ek was maar net ’n katalisator vir God se manier van doen. En wanneer ek God ontmoet sal ek dit vir Hom sê."
