Fellow countrymen, one day can be a day, or one day can be thousand years. I have a vision that, that special day, shall be a day a slave shall uprise and to tell the master the “Imperialist” that enough is enough. The white man made us slaves over two hundred and fifty years ago and set us free later but, the African is still not free. Two hundred fifty years later, the life of the African is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and by the chains of discrimination. Two hundred fifty years later, the African lives on a lonely continent of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. Two hundred fifty years later, the African is still languished in the corners of Imperialist society and finds himself as a slave in his own land because they have made us blind not to see the riches around and under our feet. Our leaders have now turned to be “Beggars”. Without begging! the World Bank, the IMF and other colonial lenders, the African leader is incapable to manage his own affairs and to feed his own people. The African leader is made blind that he doesn´t even know what he used the money he borrowed for. Financial losses to the state is always the end result. Corruption and mismanagement is the African national Anthem today. Why?. Fellow countrymen, the new African is now awake from sleeping and about to strike and tell the Imperialist his transgressions against the African. The new African has come to cash the check of his ancestors labor. The new African knows the history of his ancestors. The new African knows the architects who wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence for the African. This African Independence declaration was just a camouflage of neo-colonialism. This same Constitution and Declaration of Independence was written for Ghanaians. Today Ghanaian´s Constitution can easily be manipulated to suite the Imperialist demands and to protect all sorts of atrocities meted on his people. It is obvious today that the Imperialist has defaulted for thinking that so far as her salves are concerned, they will never get back to their senses to revolt against them. Instead of honoring this independence obligation, the imperialist has given the Black people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." These is no money in our coffers to pay for the slaves we maltreated. They say they helped the Africans in getting their eyes opened or in other words "We made you civilized". Fellow countrymen, there will be neither rest nor tranquility in the world until the African is granted his full “Freedom and Justice”. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the day the Imperialist pays back that check of freedom and justice to the African. Fellow countrymen, we have a reason to fear the Imperialist. Let me tell you the history of the African´s incapability of developing. Every African may ask why all these years Africans are not developing after slave trade has ended for over two hundred and fifty years?. The answer is simple like this: THE ORIGIN OF AFRICAN´S INCAPABILITY OF DEVELOPING/h4> A white advocate once said: Let us make a slave. What do we Need? He said, “First of all we need a black Nigger man, a pregnant Nigger woman and her baby Nigger boy. Second, we will use the same basic principle that we use in breaking a horse, combined with some more sustaining factors. We reduce them from their natural state in nature; whereas nature provides them with the natural capacity to take care of their needs and the needs of their offspring, we break that natural string of independence from them and thereby create a dependency state so that we may be able to get from them useful production for our business and pleasure”. “We lay down the following principles for long range comprehensive economic planning:
- 1) Both horse and Niggers are no good to the economy in the wild or natural state.
2) Both must be broken and tied together for orderly production.
3) For orderly futures, special and particular attention must be paid to the female and the youngest offspring.
4) Both must be crossbred to produce a variety and division of labor.
5) Both must taught to respond to a peculiar new language.
6) Psychological and physical instruction of containment must be created for both”.
