The Ballot or The Bullet? (2000) - Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin

This quote was added by savageengine
The most important thing here is that we need to organize in the streets, not just for civil rights or American citizenship rights, but total political independence in whatever form that takes. We need to use whatever means of resistance is necessary to secure our freedom, and not be trapped into thinking that our entire future is bound up in the current fate of Al Gore. Whether he wins or loses, we will still be Black and have to deal with racism in the United States.

"Whatever means of resistance is necessary" is a pretty broad stroke to paint with. Irresponsible.
