Black man, you are on your own.

Being black is not a matter of pigmentation – being black is a reflection of a mental attitude.

It becomes more necessary to see the truth as it is if you realize that the only vehicle for change are these people who have lost their personality.

Merely by describing yourself as black you have started on a road towards emancipation, you have committed yourself to fight against all forces that seek to use your blackness as a stamp that marks you out as a subservient being.

The blacks are tired of standing at the touchlines to witness a game that they should be playing.

The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.

You are either alive and proud or you are dead, and when you are dead, you can’t care anyway.
