Best advice when facing bigots

لَا تَكُونُوا إِمَّعَةً تَقُولُونَ إِنْ أَحْسَنَ النَّاسُ أَحْسَنَّا وَإِنْ ظَلَمُوا ظَلَمْنَا وَلَكِنْ وَطِّنُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ إِنْ أَحْسَنَ النَّاسُ أَنْ تُحْسِنُوا وَإِنْ أَسَاءُوا فَلَا تَظْلِمُوا

Prophet Muhammad (Prayers & Peace be Upon him and his family) said:

Do not be like the people without minds that say,  if people treat us well, we will treat them well.  However, if they treat us badly (oppress us), we will also treat them badly (oppress them).  Instead, accustom yourselves that if people treat you well, you also treat them well.  But if they act with evil towards you, do not treat them badly (oppress them).
