John Adams, 1790:

There must be one, indeed, who is the last and lowest of the human species.

Lyndon Johnson, 1960:

If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.

Paul Ciano
