Einstein,“There is separation of colored people from white people in the United States," he said. “That separation is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. And, I do not intend to be quiet about it.” Denouncing racism and segregation and becoming a huge proponent of civil rights even before the term became fashionable. Einstein was a member of several civil rights groups. Happy Birthday Albert Einstein!" Craig Lowery II for Last Words.
