Unknown – Importance of Politics

“Dere wan’t no time to lose. A little while back de Democrats got hold o’ one end o’ Congress, an’ now dey’s got de odder end. The Democrat party was de party dat kep’ us in slavery, an’ de Republican party was de party dat sot us free. When de party dat set us free goes out, an’ de party dat kep’ us in slavery comes in, it’s time for de nigger to look out for himself. Constitutional Amendments an’ all dem things us very nice for de white man to talk about, but it’s mighty risky business for us.”35
