In 1852 Frederick Douglass was asked to speak in celebration of the
4th of July
Dedicated to Dr. Robert Austin Somerville R.I.P.
Frederick Douglass once said that power concedes nothing without a struggle. Brown people of all shades have been struggling for over 300 years and power has not conceded much at that time. The problem with the United States is not the government as much is it is the people’s unwillingness to think! When exiting the constitutional convention a woman asked Benjamin Franklin “What have you giving us?” He replied, “A republic if you can keep it!” Of cause he was not referring to all of the people on this land at the time, however, his word has some meaning for all of the people now. The powers that be, being unable to return to their savage way without world ridicule, must put up an air of respectability. The main point that I would like to make is what Franklin was talking about was the inability of the citizens to continue to think. Thinking citizens are no longer the norm. They have made many of us think that we are the servant of the government and the government is the master. Many will say “that is not so!” but still insist that the only two things one must do in life are paying taxes and die, and pay those taxes to an entity that is not even a part of the government that should rightfully be the servant of, but is in fact (by an unwillingness to think) the master. It’s has gotten so bad that even those who call themselves “White” are having issues with their government.
