You must understand this point very carefully. Violence has two points: reactionary violence and revolutionary violence. Everyone knows that the Africans in this country are oppressed through violence. When the police shoots down a brother; when the police shoots a 68-year-old woman; when the police shoots a 7-year-old boy anywhere in this country, it is for one reason alone: to intimidate the population to keep them in line. This is violence.
America is a racist, capitalist country. Everybody knows that. I cannot, as an African, in good conscious, advocate to my people, that anyone of them put down any gun in a racist, capitalist state.
