Someone needs to take lead and do the sacrifice for others
Our lives are not fully lived if we’re not willing to die for those we love, for what we believe.
Racism on the basis of color is a hard reality
Who murdered Jimmie Lee Jackson? Every white lawman who abuses the law to terrorize. Every white politician who feeds on prejudice and hatred. Every white preacher who preaches the Bible and stays silent before his white congregation.
The fight against injustice is not easy
Every Negro man and woman who stands by without joining this fight as their brothers and sisters are brutalized, humiliated, and ripped from this Earth.
How long are we going to continue with this?
Those who have gone before us say “no more”! No more!
Sometime you need to take a stand for your rights
That means protest! That means march! That means disturb the peace! That means jail! That means risk! That is hard!
What’s happening to our language?
Are you trying to shit me, George Wallace? Are you trying to fuck over your president?
Know your rights well
We will not wait any longer! Give us the vote! We’re not asking – we’re demanding! Give us the vote!
Any problem is a world problem
There is no Negro problem. There is no Southern problem. There is no Northern problem. There is only an American problem.
Every citizen should be treated as same
We need your involvement here, Mr. President. We deserve your help as citizens of this country. Citizens under attack.
Every issue needs same attention
Now, you listen to me. You listen to me. You’re an activist. I’m a politician. You got one big issue. I got a hundred and one.
There’s always a tolerance limit
What happens when a man says enough is enough?
