Example text

The Negro is America's metaphor.  I'm one of the 22 million black people who are the victims of Americanism.  If the truth is anti­American, then blame the truth, don't blame me.  Sitting at the table doesn't make you a diner.  And what she did to the American public, to get the American public to go along with it, is criminal.  We didn't land on Plymouth Rock, my brothers and sisters, Plymouth Rock landed on us.  The Negro is the barometer of all America's institutions and values.  Your ancestors took the lash, the branding iron, humiliations, and oppression because one day they believed you would come along to flesh out the dream.

Intervention [in Vietnam] because we are deluded in supposing we have the right or the power to dictate the principles under which other people should live.  I love America more than any other country in the world, and exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.  The making of an American begins at that point where he himself rejects all other ties, any other history, and himself adopts the vesture of his adopted land.  They have no other experience besides their experience in this continent, and it is an experience which cannot be rejected, which yet remains to be embraced.

You are no longer innocent, you are condemned to awareness.  Who can be born black and not exult!  He made no mistake when he made us black with kinky hair.  The more blackness a woman has, the more beautiful she is.  Step outside yourself, then look back, and you will see how human, yet how beautiful and black you are, how very black, even when you're integrated.  We know that we are beautiful.  Art must discover and reveal the beauty which prejudice and caricature have overlaid.  It is usually pale, blonde, and a size seven.
