"On this subject, as on every other which may occur, I hold it my duty to lay before you all the facts which are relevant, all the opinions which are plausible, leaving you then to judge for yourselves."

Who said this? A Fox News reporter? An Intelligent Design advocate?

This was a quote from Dr. John Augustine Smith in 1808 before a group of New York medical students.

The topic of his speech was how whites ("Europeans") were superior to all the other races of man, "or, at least, further removed from the brute creation."

Teach the controversy!
