Prophetic hadith in condemnation of racism

From Abi Nadrah al-Mundhir Ibn Malik Ibn Qut’ah who said, ‘Someone who heard the sermon of the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in the middle of the days of al-Tashriq informed me that he said,
“O people! Indeed, your Lord is one and your father is one. Indeed, an Arab has no excellence over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any excellence over an Arab, nor does a white person have any excellence over a black one, nor does a black person have any excellence over a white one, except through taqwa. Have I conveyed the message?” They replied, ‘You have conveyed it O Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم).”
