„It is better to die for an idea that will live, than to live for an idea that will die.“

— Steve Biko
Quoted in Scott MacLeod, "South Africa: Extremes in Black and Whites" http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,975037,00.html, Time, March 9, 1992, p. 38<!--see also http://www.wordola.com/wusage/mcerwa/all.html--> Quoted in "The Mind of Black Africa" (1996) by Dickson A. Mungazi, p. 159

„Apartheid — both petty and grand — is obviously evil.“

— Steve Biko
Context: Apartheid — both petty and grand — is obviously evil. Nothing can justify the arrogant assumption that a clique of foreigners has the right to decide on the lives of a majority. We Blacks

„This is the extent to which the process of dehumanization has advanced.“

— Steve Biko
Context: The logic behind white domination is to prepare the black man for the subservient role in this country. Not so long ago this used to be freely said in parliament, even about the educational system of the black people. It is still said even today, although in a much more sophisticated language. To a large extent the evil-doers have succeeded in producing at the output end of their machine a kind of black man who is man only in form. This is the extent to which the process of dehumanization has advanced. We Blacks

„The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.
So as a prelude whites must be made to realise that they are only human, not superior. Same with Blacks. They must be made to realise that they are also human, not inferior.“

— Steve Biko
Context: Even today, we are still accused of racism. This is a mistake. We know that all interracial groups in South Africa are relationships in which whites are superior, blacks inferior. So as a prelude whites must be made to realize that they are only human, not superior. Same with blacks. They must be made to realize that they are also human, not inferior. Statement quoted in the Boston Globe (25 October 1977)
