  • Powerful segment with James Baldwin: racism is not as simple as simply hate, it's just the most obvious

    10
    James Baldwin says:



    I don't know how most white folks in this country feel. But I can only conclude how they feel by the state of their institutions.



    I don't know that white christians hate negros or not, but I know that we have a christian church which is white and a christian church which is black. I know, as Malcolm X once put it, the most segregated hour in American Life is high noon on Sunday. It says a great deal for me about a Christian Nation. It means that I can't afford to trust most white Christians and certainly can't trust the Christian Church.





    I don't know whether the labor unions and their bosses really hate me, that doesn't matter, but I know that I'm not in their unions.



    I don't know whether real estate lobbies are against black people, but I know the real estate lobiess keep me in the ghetto.



    I don't know if the board of education hates black people, but I know the text books they give my children to read and the schools that we have to go to



    Now, this is the evidence. It would take an act of faith risking myself, my life, my woman, my sister, my children on some idealism which you assure me exists in America which I have never seen.moreless
