You Can’t Be Beautiful and Hate
1945-46 — multi-city American tour sponsored by B’nai B’rith
Hate is a corroding disease that affects the way you look. Prejudice shows in your eyes and warps your expression. It damages your character. You can’t hide it — ever. It shows in your eyes. It warps your expression. It affects your character, your personality.
Some girls and fellows are born handsome. But their personalities and features are distorted because they question a person’s color and religion before they decide to like him.
I have visited dozens of veterans’ hospitals where white and Negro, Jew and Gentile, Yank and Dixie share the same ward. They will all tell you that if you have prejudice against any race or religion, it will do nothing but harm you and make you ugly as a person.
