Excellent MOS COLOR shots of smoldering, destroyed buildings after riots in Chicago after MLK assassination, 1968. MS signs at intersection of Roosevelt & Spaulding. MS National Guard on patrol; TLS Nat l Guard in army transports. MS Chicago police officers kicking black men off the street, away from locked & gated stores. TLS contingent of young black men walking in street under el tracks. "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."

"They see that the whites are so evenly divided that every time they vote, the race is so close that they have to go back and count the votes all over again. Which means that any block, any minority that has a block of votes that stick together, is in a strategic position, either way you go that s who gets it. You re in a position to determine who goes to the White House and who stays in the doghouse. You re the one that has that power."

"In Washington DC in the House of Representatives there are 257 who are Democrats, only 177 are Republicans. In the Senate there are 67 Democrats, only 33 are Republicans. The party that you backed controls 2/3 of the House of Representatives and the Senate and still they can t keep their promise to you. Because you re a chump. Anytime you throw your weight behind a political power that controls 2/3 of the government and that party can t keep the promise they made to you during election time and you re dumb enough to walk around continuing identifying yourself with that party, you re not only a chump you re a traitor to your race."

MOS excerpts of newsreel of 1948 Democratic National Convention: great shots of the delegate floor; elated delegates hold placards bolstering Truman nomination. "And what kind of alibi do they come up with? They try and pass the buck to the Dixiecrat. Now back in the days when your were blind, deaf and dumb, ignorant, politically immature, naturally you went along with that but today as your eyes come open and you develop political maturity your able to see and think for yourself and you can see that a Dixiecrat is nothing but a Democrat in disguise. You look at the structure of the government that controls this country; it s controlled by 16 senatorial committees and 20 congressional committees. Of the 16 senatorial committees that run the government, 10 are now in the hands of Southern segregations. Of the 20 congressional committees that run the government, 12 of them are now in the hands of Southern segregationists. And they're going to tell you and me that the South lost the war. You today are in the hands of a government of segregationists, racists, white supremacists, who belong to the Democratic Party but disguise themselves as Dixiecrats."
