which is a racist society
No matter how much you hear it talk about democracy
It's as racist as South Africa or as racist as Portugal
Or as racist as any other racialist society on this
on this earth
The only difference between it
and South-Africa: South-Africa
Preaches separation and practices separation
America preaches integration
and practices segregation!
This is the Only difference
They don't practice what they Preach!
For in South-Africa preaches and practices
the Same thing
I have more respect for a man
who let me know where he stands
Even if he's wrong
Then one who comes up like an angel
and is nothing but a devil. "
"I, uhm... I don't agree with him
because I don't have to follow anyone to defend myself
I think that, uhm... there are, every people, uhm
All people have been
frustrated in some form from another
I don't agree with him, I don't follow a man
and I don't think anyone should follow one man
I think they should follow their conscience!
I think the most of them, most negroes
that they feel sorry for themselves
And I think that this keep some that, uhm
Much more than they would be
If they didn't feel so sorry for themselves. "
"If Martin Luther King, Roy Wilkins or any of these uuh
who say exactly what the white man wants to hear
Is interviewed anywhere in the country
you don't get anybody to offset what they say
But whenever a black man
Stands up and says something that
White people don't like then the first thing
that white man does
Is run around and try and find somebody
to say something
To, to uuhm... offset
What has just been said!
This is Natural!
But it is done. "
"You know what I think?
I just think... I think you, you... you givin' up!
(givin' up on what?)
An ideal of an integrated America
the dream of Martin Luther King, I think you givin' up
This is not, I'm not tryna be a "Smarterica"
I'm calling you honestly
That I think you givin' up! "
[Minister Louis Farrakhan, on the Donahue Show 1991:]
"You know, it's interesting... how... white folk... sit here
Thinking that... I have a reason... to lie to you
As though you are so powerful
And you are so wonderful
And I am so ashamed of my words
that I have to twist and turn, please!
You are not dealing... with that kind of man
You're dealing with a man... who means what he says
And says what he means, now listen! " [beat stops]
