This would depend on your opinion rather than mine. I am partial to Shylock's famous speech about Jews and Christians being alike in Act 3 sc 1.

Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed?
