As long as someone is giving you something, he can always take it back. And this is where our people are making the mistake. We are sitting, waiting for whites. We’ve been sitting and waiting for the man to give us some concessions. If you’re asking the white power structure for jobs, that’s only a temporary solution. If you ask the white power structure for housing, that’s a temporary solution. As Mr. Farmer said where the Negro used to ask for equality, now he’s asking for more than equality. Well, likewise, if they give us more than equality, ten years from now we’re going to be asking for more than that because the problem has still not gotten a real solution. ￼As long as we accept a temporary solution, the problem will go unsolved. It will be solved for you and me, right now, but not for our children. If the black nations in Africa, most of which have less, a less number of educated Africans than exist among black people in this country, yet they can establish their own independent nations and try and create a future for their people, then Mr. Muhammad says, here in America, there are enough black people who profess to be educated and with all this talk about equality with the white man, if we’re equal with the white man, why can’t we separate from him and set up our own government, and grow for ourselves and solve our own problems?
