Vincent Price: Message to listeners of The Saint

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As responsible parents you never think of allowing your children to play with poison and as responsible Americans it’s your duty to protect them from the dangers of the poison we call prejudice.

Here in America racial and religious hatred does exist, sustained by the political adventurers and plain crackpots who are willing to scrap the democratic way of life to attain their own ends.

Prejudice in America is centered in their addled philosophy but unless we guard ourselves and our families it can find its way into our own lives. Then the poison would do its work, undermining America’s unity, sabotaging our prestige abroad and wrecking our ideal of individual freedom.

In your family life you can effectively carry on a campaign against prejudice. Our youngsters grow up with a pride in their country. Teach them that part of that pride is our tradition of accepting or rejecting people on their individual worth not on the basis of race or religion or color.

Remember freedom and prejudice can’t exist side by side. If you choose freedom, fight prejudice.

In honor of his birthday, I’m going on a Vincent Price reblogging jamboree, because this man was phenomenal, and his message still resonates.
