In America, when a black man resists letting a white man put a rope around his neck, the black man is accused of violence. In America, when a black man resists the hatred that is being taught by the white man, then the black man is accused of advocating hatred. In America when the black man makes resistance against the white supremacy doctrine and brainwashing that have been done to black people to make black people hate themselves, then that black man is accused of advocating black supremacy which is only designed to offset the inferiority complex that he has from his overdose of white supremacy here in America.
So in America, black people should never be accused of being violent or advocating violence. In America when a black man says, “I have to defend myself,” you should call that what it is, self-defense. And if America has the right to defend herself, from her enemies, the black man in America has the right to defend himself from his enemies. If it’s alright for the black people in Angola to defend themselves against the atrocities of the white Portuguese, if it’s alright for the black people in Algeria to defend themselves against the atrocities of the French, and if it’s alright for the black people in the Congo to defend themselves from the atrocities of the white Belgians, then it is just as much so alright for the black people here in America to defend ourselves from the atrocities that these white American colonialists have been inflicting against us. Don’t never point to colonialism in Africa or Latin America, there are 20 million black people here in America who are thoroughly colonized than any black people in Africa or Asia have ever been.
