Leroy Eldridge Cleaver was an American writer and political activist who became an early leader of the Black Panther Party. From the book: “I don’t know how to go about waiting until people start practicing what they preach. I don’t know how to go about waiting on that. Because all I see is a very critical situation, a chaotic situation, where there’s pain, there’s suffering, there’s death, and I see no justification for waiting until tomorrow to say what you would say tonight. I see no justification for not moving even if i have to move by myself . . .”
“The first thing that has to be realized is that it is a reality when people say that there’s a ‘black colony’ and a ‘white mother country.’ Only if this distinction is borne clearly in mind is it possible to understand that there are two different sets of dynamics now functioning in America.” 000579
