The Lone Ranger: That's just what you won't do, Lee. You can't run away from prejudice. You've got to fight it. It's the American way.
The Lone Ranger: There's no room in this country for racial prejudice. It just doesn't belong!
Sheriff Ike Kane: It's your sworn duty to protect your freight. That includes human freight, no matter what the color of their skin is.
Lee Po: Why they do this to me?
The Lone Ranger: I think I know, Lee. The lowest reason a human heart is capable of.
Lee Po: Someone put that boy up to this? But why?
The Lone Ranger: Because their skin is a different color from yours. It's as simple as that. You see, Lee, children have no prejudice. I've seen them play - yellow, red, black, and white. They don't know there's any difference. They have to be taught prejudice. By their elders. By people who can only feel big by making others feel small.
The Lone Ranger: I'll tell you what's wrong with it. Chinese are people, human beings. They have the same right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that you have. They were brought here to help build this country. They have done most of the dirty work that white men wouldn't even touch. They dug our ditches, washed our clothes. And they helped build the railroad that opened up this great country of ours to settlers.
