We are once again being abducted and sold into slavery by cruel black masters. See our leaders at political galas as they extol and exalt one another while constantly elucidating the dogma of discontent among the black masses. It is time for black Americans to arise to their God-given place in this world. However, the rise cannot be effectuated without a change in our leadership because they are the problem.
They once fought for our rights under the banner of righteousness, but now they are part of the establishment. As part of the establishment, they serve their liberal masters well. Every evil cause (e.g., abortion, homosexual marriage, anti-school choice, etc.) they've allied themselves with, even though many of us cringe in shame. Such action denigrates our noble race and is contrary to what we shout about on Sundays.
We were released from the shackles of slavery only to be held captive by political leaders who seek their own glory. As a harlot is rented, so are we on Election Day. These black leaders use the formidable weapons of fear and intimidation to coerce compliance to their master's dictates by announcing we are going back to slavery or demagoguing affirmative-action opponents. By their actions, these so-called "leaders" have abandoned the basic tenets of the Civil Rights Era, namely success through character and ability; unwittingly, they have become impediments to black ascendancy. These leaders do not inspire the pursuit of excellence, but rather encourage the masses to become dependent on others and despondent to opportunities.

It is time for us to arise and fulfill our true potential. Racism is not the problem: We are the problem. By embracing the concomitant teratogenies of victimology and inferiority as an internal mindset, we once again become enslaved to unkind masters. Let us arise to our true selves. We are a people capable of moving mountains. In the 1960s, the black race advanced because we occupied the moral high ground. The rights we fought for were deeply rooted in the U.S. Constitution and the Bible. Today, we no longer occupy the moral high ground. Our very behavior and lifestyle have become the antithesis of responsible living. We blindly follow leaders who through deceit curry our favor and side with perverse allies that jeopardize our very survival. It is time for black Americans to arise and break the shackles that bind us. To seek mere equality should not be our quest but rather intellectual and economic ascendancy. The ascendancy I espouse can only be apprehended through hard work, self-control and a personal vision of grandeur.
Let us this day as a people rebel against political schemes and reject moral putridity. By pursuing excellence in all aspects of this life, we will be able to flourish in the new century. As a minority in the land, we cannot survive otherwise.
