My name is Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown. I am a devoted servant of Allah, and an unwavering devotee to His cause. For more than 30 years, I have been tormented and persecuted by my enemies for reasons of race and belief.
In terms of the revolution, I believe that the revolution will be a revolution of dispossessed people in this country: that’s the Mexican American, the Puerto Rican American, the American Indian, and black people.
So black people all across this country are uniting. They must unite, and they must organize themselves.
Black people must address itself to the causes of poverty. That’s oppression in this country.
No such thing as a Dixiecrat.
The man does not beat your head because you got a Cadillac or because you got a Ford; he beats you because you’re black!
Class structures are a luxury that we cannot afford.
We happen to be the vanguard of that revolutionary struggle because we are the most dispossessed.
Yes, politics IS war without bloodshed; and war is an extension of those politics.
Everybody in the black community must organize, and then we decide whether we will have alliance with other people or not, but not until we are organized.
