Example text

Ain't nothing changed for me but the address.  Being black in America is often like playing your home games on your opponent's court.  To be black means that your soul, your mind and your body are where the dispossessed are.  The other cause of death is barely worth putting down on the death certificate.  Being a star made it possible for me to get insulted in places where the average Negro could never hope to go and get insulted.  We wear the mask that grins and lies.  But traveling around I found one thing for sure: it's up­South and down­South, and it's no different.

It is a curious but inevitable irony that the American temperament, so notorious for its overweening confidence and self­esteem, should be of all temperaments least reflective, and for all its self­consciousness, should know itself so ill.  Subtly, the conditions that are molding a New Negro are molding a new American attitude.  Together we planted the tree of liberty and watered its roots with our tears and blood, and under its branches we will stay and be sheltered.  Let the greedy foreigners know that a part of this country belongs to us and that we assert the right to live and labor here.

This land which we have watered with our tears and our blood, is now our mother country and we are well satisfied to stay where wisdom abounds and the gospel is free.  I was—and am—an American.  [The United States] is moving toward two societies, one black, one white, separate and unequal.  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.
