"When we open our eyes today and look around America, we see America not through the eyes of someone who has enjoyed the fruits of Americanism. We see America through the eyes of someone who has been the victim of Americanism. We don t see any American dream; we ve experienced only the American nightmare. We haven t benefited from America s Democracy. We ve only suffered from America s hypocrisy, and the generation that s coming up now can see it and are not afraid to say it. If you go to jail, so what! If you re black, you were born in jail. If you black you were born in jail, in the North as well as the South. Stop talking about the South, as long as you South of the Canadian border, you re South. Don t call Governor Wallace a Dixie governor, Romney is a Dixie governor. Twenty two million black victims of Americanism are waking up and they re gaining a new political conscious. They re becoming politically mature and as they develop this politically maturity their able to see the recent trends in these political elections."
