Some of us have a very childish attitude. You hear some Black people say, “I don’t look at color.” “I don’t see the world in color.” A person victimized in terms of their color and they don’t see it. And it’s such a foolish, illogical statement. It’s sort of like a child that closes it’s eyes, and because it doesn’t see believes it’s not seen. And so we often think because we don’t see color, the world doesn’t see us as colored. And because we don’t see ourselves as Black, the world is not going to look upon us as Black. Foolish, stupid kind of thinking.

And so they have some people who think then, if they don’t see themselves as African, or they don’t see themselves as Black, they’re not going to be treated as Black, but that very case itself illustrates that problem, doesn’t it? It’s like some people who think they get degrees they’re going to be protected. You know that kid that got killed the other day in the park? And a lot of people were alarmed, “Oh, he went to a Black private school and he got a full scholarship,” as if that would had stopped the bullet. And so those of you who get these degrees, when these people start attacking you, do you think they’re going to stop and ask you, “Where did you get your degree from?” “DMCC, let me off!” No, no. They’re going to see your Black skin and they’re going to lay it on you the way they lay it on anybody else. As a matter of fact, if the system works right, it’s going to be the educated ones that get it first.
