I am currently corresponding with the friend who is an inmate in a federal prison. As we progress along various subjects the one at the moment I will call "White Supremacy".

Can anyone point me to the best Papal Encyclicals, Letters, etc condemning racisim? I would think that Pius XI or XII would have something but my meager research did not provide instant results.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If it were me, I'd go to the Vatican and/or EWTN website and do a document search on this topic.

I found the above link it is a pastoral letter on racism from 1979 released by the Bishops.

Another link from the US Catholic Bishops Conference:
