"At the very same time that America refused to give the Negro any land, through an act of Congress our government was giving away millions of acres of land in the West & Midwest. Which meant that it was willing to undergird its White Peasants from Europe with an Economic floor but not only did they give the land. They built land grant Colleges with government money to teach them how to farm. Not only that, they provided county agents to further their expertise in farming. Not only that, they provided low interest rates in order that they can mechanize their farms. Not only that, today many of these people are receiving millions of dollars in federal subsidies not to farm and they are the very people telling the Black man he ought to lift himself up by his own bootstraps. Now this is what we’re faced with and this is the reality. Now when we come to Washington this is the campaign. We are coming to get our check."

Great quote. White people are always trying to claim that if anyone “works hard,” they, too, can become rich and successful. And they always try to cite their grandparents/ great grandparents/forefathers as “immigrants” who came to USA from Europe without much money and they became “rich.”
We all know that being WHITE, in fact, helped them become rich and successful.
