Separation or Death. (Page 21)
Separation or Death!
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
In the name of Allah the Most Merciful. To whom all holy praises is due,
the Lord of the Worlds. The Most Merciful.
The separation! That’s what I am here to talk with you about. The
separation of you and I from the white race.
Some of you scholars may say, “He’s ahead of time.” I’m not ahead of time
my brother student scientist. I don’know where you get your condemnation
from, but I have proof that I’m not ahead with this subject. I can prove
to you that I might be around forty years behind the actual time.
We say, some of us, that we don’t like to be separated. I’m not arguing
with you about what you don’t like. Some of us say that it causes lots of
misunderstanding, lots of grievance, lots of trouble to teach to be
disunited or be separated.
The thing we want to do, many of our people say, is now to go and join up
with them and destroy ourselves and them too. I say, I’m not trying to
change your belief or the way you are doing. I’m only here to tell you
the Truth and the consequence of such ideas.
Separation or death is the subject. Some of this good earth that we can
call our own. That is the subject.There are many people who are very lost
in knowledge of just the Time that we are living in and just what we
should teach in such Time.
Many people are without the knowledge of that. Some of us are speaking
the language that people were speaking a thousand years ago. Some of us
are even speaking the language that people spoke 4,000 years ago. We are
not speaking in the language of those people 4,000 or 2,000 years ago. We
are speaking in the language of the people here today, at the end of
6,000 years ago.
We are here to speak in the number seven (7). We have passed out the
number six (6). We are living in the number (7). We are living in the
symbolic teachings of the Bible in the Lost Sheep or the Lost Sabbath,
meaning the seven thousandth year, since the creation of the Caucasian
There are opposers today in being separated. I want to sum up a
little of the work of separation of the planets. I want to show you how,
in the very beginning, that you were separated. I want to show you,
according to history, that in the end that you shall be separated. I want
to show you how it took place 6,000 years ago.
We the people, by the guidance of Almighty and All Wise Allah, To Whom
Praises be forever, has taught us the Truth. We don’t reckon about
whether or no He has taught us the Truth. We Know He has taught us the
I’m not going to the library nor to the colleges or universities of
America and Europe to find out whether He taught me the Truth or not. I
don’t have to get any witness out of their educational system to bear me
witness whether or not that God has spoken the Truth. I know He has spoke
I’m not an educated man. I have no Degree from your colleges and
universities. I have only the Teachings of Almighty God, Allah. I have on
ly been a student under Him. I’m not boasting that I’m your equal in
education, but I do boast that I have the word of God to deliver to you.
And for the first time since you and I have been in the Western
Hemisphere has the knowledge of ourselves come to us.
We never had the knowledge to come to us before today, of our self and
our people and of our religion and of our God. And of the people, who had
rule over us for the past 400 years in the Western Hemisphere. It is the
first time that we have learned truthfully, their history. It is the
first time that we have learned truthfully the beginning and the end.
We didn’t take it from Scriptures that have been added in and added
out. It came directly from His Mouth.
If you feel that you will not be successful if you are separated. I
say, take a look at this. Ever since that Almighty God, Allah created the
Universe, there has been separation going on in it. And when He created
the very germ, the atom of life, also was a double section and there was
separation in it.
The very cells that we have, in them there is a separation. I say, my
friend, I want to talk to you, who don’t like to be separated.
According to the creation of the present civilization today, they also
were separated in the beginning of their time.
We today, the Black people, the Black man, you have made to think that
he was an inferior person because that he has laid down and slept for the
past 6,000 years to allow the white race to rule.
You think that he is a fool, just because he has been sound asleep and
allowing others to rule him. No! No! He’s not yet a fool.
His head may look hard and knotty but that’s alright. That head is
from The Father that created the universe. That head is from The Father
that made everything from a zero. And then divided them into separate
state to themselves and gave them their own wisdom and knowledge to rule
in their own respective spheres. I have the proof of that and you have it.
If you can bear the Truth, bear it. If you can’t, I say leave. Because
it is nothing but the Truth. I don’t know nothing else. I’m after you,
the Black man. I’m not trying to convert the white man. I’m after
converting you! You are the man that is asleep.
The white man is wide awake! He’s no dummy by no means. I’m not trying
to teach a man that was not given to me as a student. No! I’m after the
man that has been made blind deaf and dumb.
We, the Black man of the earth, has no birth record. There is no book,
no rock on this earth or in the earth that can tell you our birth record.
Go and search the earth. Search the rocks for signs that draw our
beginning and you won’t find it.
Go and search for our birth in the planets that are rotating around
the sun. You won’t find it. Then stare at the sun and the star and see if
you can find our birth record. You won’t be able to do it.
Digging up the earth, looking for bones and places for markings on
tablets and stones in Asia will never reveal to you our birth record.
Why? Because form us everything came! This is the truth that you should
You want today, to try to hang on to your slavemaster’s children. To
try to be like them. You want to be white people. Why? Because that the
white an has been in power ever since he has been on earth and he has
He has ruled us. Myself too. He has ruled all of our people, except
about 1/10 of them. He has ruled and mastered the earth except 1/10 of
it. I give him credit. And then I also give my Father, the Blackman,
I want you scholars and scientists to go back home open up the book
and pages and find whether Elijah is lying or telling the truth. And then
come back and condemn me and I will give you my life for lying.
Jesus said, according to the Bible — they put it in his mouth –and
it stands true that whoever said it, it is the truth…That the Truth you
SHALL know, right? It didn’t say that you MAY know. You shall know the
There can be no judgment without the knowledge of the Truth of who
you should be separated from. There can not be no unity without the
knowledge of knowing who I am uniting on to. There can be no love for God
or the devil until I know who is God and who is the devil. These are
facts that you and I must know today. It finally has come to us from the
mouth of Almighty God!
SEPARATION! We go back to the beginning.
In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth. He
separated us 4,600,000,000 (four billion, six hundred million) miles
He did not make one planet after the manner of the other. He did not
carry any matter from one planets sphere to build another one in another
sphere a trillion or a million miles away.
He created them of an essence that was independent — of itself–in
the sphere it was created in to prove that He was All Wise. To prove that
He could create and bring into being anything that He Wills. He would
not borrow it from another one. But absolutely make all planets rotating
into space independent of the other one. Everyone different in color.
Everyone different in size. Everyone a different civilization on it.
There are no two planets that have the same civilization.
I want to see if you are right in saying that you should all be one.
You believe one day that God made man all from one man and they all are
brothers or they all are just one people.
I want to stop you from such foolish thoughts. It is not true, by no
means. By no means is that true. You are NOT the same!
You, my beloved friends, who hate the Black man. Who hate yourself
because you are Black. I’m talking to you. And who despises to hear
Elijah say that we should be separated. You are the one’s I’m talking to.
You, who are hungry to marry white people and get spotted up children.
You are the people. I want you to understand how this thing occurred.
Six thousand years ago there was a God in Person among us. He was
predicted to be born at that time by the 24 (twenty-four) scientists, who
have his name and the place of his birth and the civilization that he
would make. And the wisdom that he would give that civilization.
He discovered in us, for the first time since that we had been in the
universe, that we had two people in us. This great scientist –a God, we
say– he discovered in the germ of the Blackman, that he could make from
that germ the last man of power that was in the Black man. And pull that
power that was lying dormant in the man out to rule the father of that
germ until the father produced another one greater than he.
The Greatest One has been produced today. We call Him, Fard-Allah. We
call Him The Mahdi.
In the creation of life on the earth and the water on the earth,
there you can find a great variety of life. Right?
If you go to the sea, we find fish after their kind, many fish, and
all are going in schools to themselves. Right? They all marry on to their
own kind. Right?
I only want to get over the truth to you, who don’t believe in
I am not talking to the white people. The white people already know of
the time we are living in and what should be done and what will be done.
I’m not telling them anything they don’t know. It’s you, my people, that
I’m talking to.
When we look on the surface and see birds of many kinds over our
heads and in the bushes and in the trees, we see different kinds, don’t
we? We see black birds, brown birds, yellow birds, red birds, white birds
and different color birds. Right? Alright. Everyone of the birds marry on
to their own kind. Right?
If they didn’t marry on to their own kind, we wouldn’t see great
clouds of black birds flying over us. We wouldn’t see a great cloud of
red birds and brown birds all going to themselves.
You never find them trying to mix or court each other. Right?
Everytime one of these birds looks for a sweetheart, they go after one
that looks like itself. Right? I hope you won’t get angry with me.
They build their nests and you won’t find no other bird trying to go
and house themselves in their with them. What happens if they try? Its a
We can’t blame the white man for beating you, kicking you, busting
your skull, and hanging you on a tree, for trying to get in his house.
You can’t blame him for that. You know why? He’s showing an act of
intelligence. He’s showing a love for his kind. And he doesn’t want you
kind mixing with his kind. I hope you won’t get angry with me.
If you had been proud of yourself and loved you own kind, and would
have bashed in his head and hung him on a tree, when he tried to get in
your house, you would have been respected today. But instead, you opened
wide your door on the hinges. What has happened to your home? Come up
here and take a look at yourself.
We want people to act on the principles of truth, today. To bring
about a better world.
Some people say that I’m with the Ku Klux Klan. That I teach the kind
of doctrine they like. That I’m with the White League Circle. That I
preach their doctrine. Separation or segregation.
I’m not teaching segregation now. I’m teaching SEPARATION! I say to
you, remember, when I say that I am 100% YOUR brother though.
To White People:
Today, they (Black people) are afraid of you (white people). They are a
people whom you have made and fashioned according to your own desire and
now, today, you are their greatest mockers.
You make fun of them. You turn up your nose at them. You squint your
eyes at them, You beat them on the highways. You kill them in your
laboratories. You kick them off of your transportation. You shun to have
a seat near them. But who were their teachers and trainers? It was you –
depriving them of knowledge of letters for 300 years, depriving them of
any teachings of God or His Prophets for 300 years. You chained you own
Bible. Locked it up, chained it to a pole, and would beat the hell out of
a slave if you found him trying to read.
It’s all going for you, my friend, who love to integrate.
This is what happened. Then also, you wrote up a code of laws you
called the slave codes of laws. In these laws, you made it impossible for
a slave to ever redeem himself.
You even wrote it in past legislation and your state laws and your
United States laws in those days to prohibit the so-called Negroes from
ever being able to free himself from you.
That’s why it’s written in your Bible that God, Himself, must redeem
the Negro. They have made it impossible for him.
You (white race) put him in your name. You put him in everything
belonging to you. You call him after your own name and you know,
according to international laws and Divine Laws of God, that as long as a
slave is willing to give himself up to you to be a free slave for you,
and is willing to destroy his own name and identity for your name and
your identity, there is no law to prevent you from doing so. I know that
to be a fact.
Now, today, you tell them, “You are free, like myself. We all are
When in the hell did you make them citizens? That’s what I want to
know. When did you make them citizens?
How can a slave be a citizen with his slavemaster? I want you to
answer that. When can a slave be the equal of his master? When can a
slave, without a thing in the world but a job and a bowl of soup, be
recognized as a equal citizen as the citizen who owns the country?
Now, today, the time (of separation) has arrived. But you say, today,
“We want to be integrated.”
We had a good lesson in 1914. We were told that we were citizens. To
do what? To go over and shoot your brother! I registered in that war.
They wanted us to go shoot the brother. We went over a shot and killed
your brother. We returned, and you shot us dead!
Later on, around 1941 and 1942, you said, “Come on, you are citizens”,
the second time, “Come go kill my brother in Germany.” We jumped on our
feet, “Thank you, sir. We are citizens of America. We will die for Old
Glory.” We went over and shot your brother the second time. Okay, you
conquered him that time. And now it looks like you want to shoot each
other about him now.
Then you pointed out one of OUR brothers. One of the brown people.
That’s OUR brother. “I don’t like him. He shot at me. Come on, you’re a
citizen of America. Go shoot the brother over there on the island.” We
went over there and shot the hell out of them.
After that, you told us, “Here’s some Koreans over there. They look
like you, but kill them. They are my enemies.” We went over there and
Before that, you said the people in the Philippine Islands didn’t like
some certain ways of your own. We went out there and killed them for you.
Down there in the south of us, you said, our little brown and yellow
brothers down there didn’t like you. We went down there and shot them off
of the Hill, and put you there.
Alright, now, today, we have not been wise enough to ask you for an
Island in the Pacific. We have not been wise enough and zealous enough to
ask you for a state in the Union. So now, today, we have helped you to
get two more big states…right?…adding to your flag 52 states. A
united America. Right, but on this flag, on these states, we don’t see
our name no where.
Even in the Revolutionary War, when you were fighting one another, you
put us in this war. We helped kill the one that you didn’t like. Right?
And even today, you have made us so dumb that you even have one
another running around here trying to throw stones at the one you say you
We are killing our own selves for you here in America. And yet, you
have not offered to us nothing but a job and that is what John Hawkins
brought us here for. To give us a job. An eternal job.
Now, today, I say to you, we don’t want no more of your promises,
that have never been fulfilled. We don’t want no integration with you! We
don’t want nothing but the freedom to get somewhere to ourselves and own
some of this earth that we can call our own.
The government has also passed a law making it an absolute national
law that the Negro can marry who he wants to. If it’s a white person, a
white person can marry a Negro. They both have equal rights in the land.
Well, I would ask you this. Since you didn’t do so 100 years ago, 60
years ago, 300 years ago, what do you see now that makes you want to
integrate with them?
Today, you say, “No, No! Separation won’t settle this thing”. What
thing? What is it that you see now, that you don’t want to be separated
from the Negro or the Negro separated from you? What is it that you see?
Do you see a lion? Or do you see a bear? What is it that you see? You
must see something!
It is the Time! That’s what you see. It’s time! You see, as the rich
man saw. You see Lazarus going to heaven. You see Lazarus leaving into
Abraham’s bosom. You can’t get there, so you’re inviting him to come back
to hell with you!
When Lazarus was in hell, he got no help from you until Abraham
I say to you, my friend, it’s just Truth. We don’t want integration.
We want Separation!
We must be separated to survive. The white people out-number us in
America over six to one. And if we would integrate into her race, how
many Black people would you find within the next 35 or 30 years, here?
Not-a-one! Because the one that would not integrate, you would kill him.
You can not swallow up six yourself. But six can swallow you up.
I say that we are the only people on the earth today that has a
future. You don’t have no people that has a better future than you have.
You, the people that is called Negro, or colored people of North
America are the people that your Bible teaches you of under the symbolic
language of The Lost Sheep, Lost piece of money, Prodigal Son, Lost and
You are the people that this is referring to. And the fact about it,
most of the Bible is referring to you, regardless to what history it
uses. It’s referring to you.
I say to you, my beloved listeners, you have a chance today, to become
the head and not the tail!
The white man’s world today, is going insane. Their power is being
destroyed by Divine War of Almighty God. I would like to give you
knowledge of that kind of power.
Before the white man, we had great civilizations that ruled. We had
kingdoms powerful on this earth, according to the Qur’an just a powerful
or more powerful that what the white man has put on the earth.
We removed them, and the Holy Qur’an will teach you that. When Allah
gets displeased with them, He removes them. And you don’t have any power
against Him to remain, anymore than those people of ancient kingdoms had
against Him to remain.
Do you see any sign of them? He made examples for you, out of them. He
destroyed the civilization of Noah’s people. And you don’t find
absolutely one literature from them. Do you? You don’t find nothing of
He destroyed the civilization of Sodom and Gomorrah. You don’t find
nothing of it. Do you? Ancient Babylon was destroyed. Right? All made a
sing for this world.
“As it was in the day of Noah, so shall it be in the day of the Son
of Man.” “As it was in the day of Sodom and Gomorrah, so shall it be in
the day of the Son of Man.” Right? All praise is due to Allah!
We, the Nation of Islam, have witnessed many civilizations. Many
strong and powerful people ruling our planet. But nevertheless, we always
produce one that could remove it. And today, one has been produced to
remove this civilization. And He’s one the scene.
You say that they are too powerful. They are going up in the heavens
–on the moon. And they are shooting for greater. Venus and other planets
I say to you. Don’t be silly. No one can live on the moon. That planet
is absolutely waterless, airless. That planet is so dry and so full of
magnetic power that if you life on the surface of it, so God has taught
me, your eyes pop out of your head, the first thing.
Your scientist say we can dig into her surface and find water. They
won’t tell you that they believe it’s a part of the earth, so God has
taught me, that is was taken from this part 66 trillion years ago. Not 66
million and billion, but 66 TRILLION years ago. And a Black Scientist did
That was 66 trillion years ago, before there was ever one white man on
the earth. It was a Black man that did that.
And now, today, America boasts that she has enough bombs stored away
to kill the civilizations on the planet earth three times.
I say, maybe you won’t be lucky enough to kill one, regardless to your
bombs. Regardless to your wisdom and knowledge of how to fashion such
explosions, there’s a man on the scene today that has power over your
brain and over your own power that you have produced.
I am not teaching the white man anything. He knows this.
It’s impossible for you to destroy all of us off this planet. Some of
you might say, “Why?” I want to know from you, who ask that foolish
question, do you not know what we have power over the Congress?
Do you not know that the air that is circulating on the surface of
this earth that there is One that has power over that? And you find a
prophecy of that in The Book.
Do you not know that there is One that has power over the power in the
earth under you foot? There is One today on the scene that can make the
earth trip you up off her back and bring up all of your stuff you have
built down into her, in the twinkling of an eye.
We have One here with us that can do that today. Just Will these things
and it will come to pass. That’s the way all of this is brought about. By
That Powerful One, Who Willed it and it was there. It came to pass.
I say to you, there is no Hydrogen Bomb or Atomic Bomb that the Western
civilization today has produced that they will be able use on the Black
man of the earth and destroy him from the planet. You won’t do it because
we have One that is greater than you to prevent it.
We have a Scientist with us today capable of even separating the
atmosphere, so if you drop your own poison gas over here, in the
twinkling of an eye, we have a Scientist that can put up a petition and
stop it from coming over on our side.
Remember what The Book says. Your own Bible teaches you. “No weapons that
are formed against thee…” Thee who? Against His people!
He has stripped us (Muslim followers of Messenger Elijah Muhammad) of
arms. We go without arms. We don’t need any. We are armed with the power
of God! We don’t need no arms. We wouldn’t have yours if you would give
them to us. We don’t need them. That’s what’s killing you. That’s what
has dug your hole.
These are the things that you should know. These are the things that you
I’m not able to get around, in detail, everything that I want to today.
What will happen if we don’t separate? I say to you, take a look over the
history. Let’s go back, even to Adam.
If Adam had not been driven out of the Garden of Paradise after he had
caused trouble there, it would have caused the death of Adam and the
People of the Garden.
He had to be driven out. He had to be separated. Right?
And that Adam was none other than the Caucasian race. They were sent into
the continent that you call Europe today, so God has taught me.
There they went. And stayed there without a Divine Guide for 2,000 years.
And they became savages. And they built there homes in the caves of the
You have it also in the Book called Job in your Bible, that they built
their homes in the caves. And these are the people that are up from the
caves and not the Black man.
We never did resort to such living, because the earth was ours, as it is
written in The Book. “The earth belongs to the lords.”
We are the lords that it belongs to. We are the original owners. Our
Fathers produced it. It was created and made for us.
The white race never did get any earth by Divine right. They got their
part by conquering or force, Right? They took what they call America from
the Red Indian. Right? And they annihilated the Red Indian. Right? And
today, they are not willing to give him nothing, but some desert part of
They have worked and breed us for 400 years and now today won’t even
offer us the poorest state in the union.
He didn’t bring us here for no citizenship. He didn’t bring us here to
share in the Western Hemisphere with him.
So I say to white America, if you are not going to give justice to us,
which you are not, it is not in your blood…You are not created like
that. There never was any justice put into you. You were made to destroy
peace and justice. You were made to destroy the unity of the people of
the righteous. You were made to make war. You were made to murder. You
were made to deceive, therefore, we don’t expect any thing of the kind
from you, like justice and love. It is not in you.
But I do say to you, my listeners that the day has arrived that we must
be separated. If we are not separated, then we both will be killed .
A Divine Justice is here to destroy the people who have destroyed the
people of the earth. To Destroy those who delight in war. To Destroy the
mischief-maker. To Destroy the injustice judge. That Man has come on the
scene today to remove such evils from the planet.
You and I have a right to run to refuge in Him. But it’s up to you, my
friend. After me telling you to run, if you don’t want to run, stay on
here. If you don’t want to be separated, stay on here and integrate. But
see how long you will enjoy it.
This is the Day of Separation. This is the day of the end of the power of
the world that you and I have known.
You say, “No, no. They are a going to rule right on.”
If they rule ten more years before they destroy themselves they will be
lucky. If they live twenty more years. they will be lucky.
What’s going to happen? I (Messenger Elijah Muhammad and his followers)
am not going to pick up a pin-knife against you. I’m not going to raise
my hand against you. It’s The One that your prophets taught you of, that
will do this thing.
I’m going to run, myself. I’m not going to run from Him. I’m not going to
run from you. But I’m running from what I see coming upon you.
It’s coming some day. But you can prolong your time. Your time was up in
1914. And you keep raising hell with us.
You keep giving us hell day and night. You Persecute us. You chase us all
over country. You bust our brains out at night through you police clubs.
You put them after us. You don’t beat up your own kind like that.
You shoot and kill us at night and the daytime. You beat our brothers and
you kick and boot our sisters up and down the street. In the jails…you
take them inside of the jails and inside the walls you beat them there
until you are tired. No help for him. And the judge is on your side.
All Elijah’s asking for is a fair deal. Don’t keep beating and killing
us. Don’t keep persecuting Elijah and his followers just because they
believe in Islam and you know that they have a long future by believing
You know they have a home if you would kick them out of here. You know
Elijah and his followers have a home. The Islamic world would provide a
home for every one of my followers. You know that!
I have a letter that came to me from the North Side in Chicago from a
white lady. She was so angry over a radio broadcast that I made. She
said, “Listen, if you want the Negro, take them on back to Africa and I’m
sure the government will help you to take them back there. We don’t want
your Negroes. Take them on back there and yourself too.”
And she also goes so far as to say in the letter… She says, “You are
teaching the Negroes to hate the white folks.”
I’m not teaching the Negro to hate white people. I’m teaching the Negro
who the white people really are!
It is entirely up to my people to love you, know you, or worship you, as
the Bible teaches us in the Revelation.
It teaches us around the 12th or 13th chapter. It says that they should
not worship devils. But my people actually worship you. And we have it
directly from the mouth of God and from the history of yourself and from
out of your own scientists mouth that you are really The devil and it’s
up to us love or hate you.
You hated us all of your life. You have never given to us anything but
hate. You have always told us that you hated us, Black Negroes. That you
didn’t like none them so-and-so-and so’s.
Now let us so-and-so-and so’s get on from among you.
Some of you say, “We, all, are not like that. I like Negroes, myself.”
Maybe you might be one out of a million. But I’m afraid to trust you,
because I know your nature. You weren’t made like that!
If you want me to talk what I know, make me angry and I will talk it. I
know these things. For the last 2,000 years since the creation of the
white race there has been a dislike for Black all over the earth. Even in
Asia there is a dislike for the Black man.
It is against the very nature of a white man in America, white
Christians, to come up and greet you and call you brother and sister.
It’s against there nature. They feel shame. They feel guilty to say that
because they know you are not their brothers. They know you are not their
And you feel cheap. You just can’t call them no brothers and sisters.
Something in you kind-of cramps you.
That’s like the Black bird and the white bird. The white bird trying to
make himself appear as a Black bird. And the Black bird sees the white
bird and he turns away from him.
I say, my friend, get away from that idea. I say to you that is listening
here, Get out of you slave-master’s name! Get out of it.
There are 99 names that make up the One Name, Allah. God has 99 other
names. He’s offering them to you. You are free to accept them.
And if you just accept His name…You may not be too good of a Muslim,
but anyway be on the safe side.
You can not be separated and taken back into your own people with the
white man’s name nor with his religion.
Even Black Africa doesn’t want “Mr. James Brown”, if he’s a Black man,
coming from America with Christianity in his mind. No. No. You must give
up all that they have.
You were not in their name when they brought you here. Right? You didn’t
know nothing about their religion until just less than a hundred years
Alright then. I say go back to your own kind. Unite with them! There are
millions and millions of them on our planet. Get into your own kind. Get
into their names. Get into their religion. And get away from your
slave-master and his name and his religion. Christianity has never
benefit nobody but white people.
I say to you my friend you have that in your Bible, that all that had the
name of God, they were saved. They were delivered right? Like everyone
that is called by my name.
That’s referring to the Negro here in America. This is the place that God
will burn. This is the place and the only place on earth that will be set
afire and will burn. No other place. It tells you that in plain language.
How will that happen? By cutting a shortage into gravity. I say, it will
happen one of these days. You will see. I hope you don’t be in it though.
This part of the earth, America, will burn, so God told me, for 390
years, the length of time they held you as a slave here. It will burn for
390 years. And it will take it, then, over 600 years to cool off and
start growing vegetation, with cool air blowing over here again. In all,
one thousand years.
Do you think that with the cities that the white people burned your
brother and my brother in, in the South that I think they are lying?
I read in one of this Nation’s (America’s) papers in around 1922 where
that in Alabama or Mississippi…It’s been so long now…that there they
burned a man at the stake. And they were so cruel and so ugly, the white
people, with their families, sitting around drinking liquor that night.
They began burning him at the end of his toes.
A white writer wrote this thing. He said he was there. He was a news
He said that, “They burned that nigger. His name was William.”
He said, “They burned William from his toes up to his knees and he, yet,
was alive.” They burned William’s thighs off, He said. “And William was
trying to rake up hot ciders in his mouth to swallow to kill himself so
that he could get himself out of the pain.” And he said, “Some of the
white lynchers sitting around with stockings on their hands with an iron
stick or their guns to keep him from committing suicide by swallowing the
And he said he sat there and looked at this man being burned. His legs
burned off to his chest before he actually died.
Now, you think that I should preach that you should love people that have
no heart at all?
That’s the kind of heartless people we live under. A gang of loose
savages from Europe.
No wonder the Prophet said in the Revelation that he saw this
civilization like a beast. Four beasts.
He didn’t recognize this civilization to call them a civilization. He
said, “A beast” rose up. Rose up in this civilization. In his mouth,
three ribs of a man. And he had iron claws. A man eater! A killer of the
people! A murderer! He saw. He said he was so dreadful he looked terrible.
He couldn’t describe the fourth beast. And I want to tell you here
tonight, this evening, that the fourth beast means none other than the
fourth great power of the white man’s civilization and that is America.
America is the greatest power of all the white people.
