    A vietnamese stand up in England after ww2. Charles DeGaulle was not popular in Vietnam. The president of the fourth republic was very socialistic... to white francophones, and to no one else. This created an image of a nazi communist. The french part was a ribe at the colonizer and the franco-British rivalry

    A quote said in Juan Angeles's book The Enemy of the Elites, loosely based on his own history. Based around a popular organizer being persecuted by a hypochrite ultranationalist elite of Hacienda-owners, it was an analogue to his story as a regional organizer of the Popular Front during the last years of the American Federation. Published on Caracas in 1923, the novel would make him a influential person, jumpstarting his political career and leading to his election as President of Venezuela in 1950.

    MLK to the veteran who told him he supported the message of equality but found Malcom's heavy handedness with marches hard to stand by. Unfortunately for king, that particular veteran had been given a dishonorable discharge for refusing to bomb a Korean city, which left King looking out of touch and like his head was in the clouds, shifting civil rights to Malcom X.

    "Our movement is not one of hate, nor do we seek decolonization-- better the British than the americans or soviets. As such, this bill of racial equality is truly the greatest success that we can hope for and are grateful to the king. God Save The King, May Britain Never Surrender, and May All the Crown's People See Peace."
    --1958, London

    De Villiers Graaff, South African politician, speaking alongside up-and-coming journalist William Rees-Mogg on the goals of their Commonwealth Movement and the application of the recent Race Relations Act of 1958 to the entirety of the British Empire. The Bristol speech, as it came to be called, was at a time when the British increasingly distanced themselves from MacArthurite America, believing their methods in "fighting the Red-Brown Scourge" to be inapplicable to modern political realities.

    A Times headline for a reportage covering the Enugu March of 2009. Led by a biafran separatist organization called Biafran National Congress(BNC), that was headed by Toni Iwobi(called the Eternal Igbo), the march was the second of a series called "Marches for Freedom" and gathered 1 million people, that soon outnumbered the police forces sent to contain it. They led to global sympathy towards the BNC's struggle, what resulted in the establishment of the Republic of Biafra in 2013.

    The march on DC by gilded age protesters when President McKinley vetoed an act that would strengthen the Sherman antitrust act. The protest became a riot, the riot became dispersed, the dispersed became a revolution, and the second American civil war began as a marxist revolution, wholly discrediting Republicanism (especially when chairman Debbs supposedly won the election with 98%) and allowing the late nineteenth century monarchs to put the idea of constitutions to rest.
    The Gold Revolution as it came to be known, did however, make social and legal equality a possibility across the world if only out of fear of revolution. Much the same could be said for things like healthcare or college, even as the monarchs gained power they'd long since lost.

    A question asked by a user of the popular question-and-answers website "Quora". Currently, Cascadia(officially Republic of Cascadia) was a thriving US-styled democracy extending from San Diego to Polaris(OOC: OTL Juneau), with the capital being Astoria. Its current leader is Anthony Chavez, the first Latino president of the country and progressive firebrand. The country has good relations with the USA, the Commonwealth and the European Commonwealth. The country is a technology and oil hub.

    Adolf Hitler became an international political commentator after central power victory in the great war, and frankly had some choice words in regards to the ethnic violence between germans and poles despite Poland's independence from Russia and offers to pay for immigration costs.

    "Cascadia, despite being an expansionist power, has always sought equal rights for its various peoples. From the natives of Oregon, or the Latinos of California, the Africans of the Swahili coast, to the southeast asians of Thailand. So would someone please tell me why American dixiecrats are upholding us as some racist utopia?"

    A question asked by a cascadian user in the website "Question-n'-Answers". The expansionism mentioned in the question is a reference to the involvement of Cascadia in the Arabian War, that's executed by sending volunteers there through the Cascadian Expeditionary Force(CEF). The second part of the question refers to how the country seeks harmony between the white majority and its minorities, like the Californios, the local indigenous people and the immigrants going to there. And its last part criticizes how the small racist sect of the Democratic Party(the Dixiecrats) upholds Cascadia as a model of America, because of its interventionism, while completely ignoring their progressiveness.

    "Stamp down segregation. Vote George Wallace."

    geroge Wallace tried one last time to become president of the united states in 1972

    seeing the tide turning he tried to use his past of advocating segregation to his advantage ...by being publicly ashamed by it.

    this plot didn't work but wallace remarked on election day "it was worth the shot"

    King Edward IX in 1943 after he was informed about the new alliance between the Confederation of Mexican States and the Empire Of China.
    Edward, like many other politicians of the British Commonwealth, feared that the alliance was an enormous risk for british economical and political interests in America and Asia.

    Hunter S. Thompson in a television interview with NBC News after leaked moments of the Nixon tapes reveal that there was a very serious attempt to infiltrate his inner circle and poison his drug supply, with Nixon himself saying "Next we need to get that insane Thompson guy, the son of a bitch tries to hit us on everything we do, it's time we just take the depraved lunatic out of the equation."

    The Salmon-Class Submarine used by the U.S. Navy in an alternate 1930s failed miserably in testing. The U.S. complained about a trade interdiction/submarine-heavy strategy after the failure of the Salmon-Class. As a result, strategy advancements were put on hold and the money transferred to other areas where it was needed the most.

    President Joseph McCarthy's closing words in his public address after signing the "Protection of American Culture & Heritage Act 1958", designed to silence critics across the spectrum by banning so-called "fascistic-socialist artistry", as determined by the newly-created "Bureau of Cultural Protection" (BCP). The line would be adopted as the motto of the new agency and would run along with every "Approved by the BCP" card in cinemas.

    Rich, despite having left Disney a while ago, is offered a deal back after many animators and other personnel leave amidst a three-way feud between Michael Eisner, Roy Disney, and Steve Jobs at Pixar in 1999. Having heard about Allers' struggles directing Kingdom of the Sun/The Emperor's New Groove, Rich comes on board temporarily to help finish the project.

    BTW, the final film as Richard Rich oversaw was The Emperor and the Sun.
