Integration (Insert)

"I'm speaking as a Black man from America

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:



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

But uhm

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

Compromising negroes

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


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 "

"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 "
