Quotes:

“When racial or religious lines are drawn by the State”

When racial or religious lines are drawn by the State, the multi-racial, multi-religious communities that our Constitution seeks to weld together as one become separatist; antagonisms that relate to race or to religion, rather than to political issues, are generated; communities seek not the best representative, but the best racial or religious partisan.

William O. Douglas, 1964

From the decision Wright v. Rockefeller
