“Bob, next time, fire it is”

“Bob, next time, fire it is” 

          “It is impossible that past humiliation of Blacks comes back to crush us all.  Blacks will refuse to go to war abroad: How many blacks could the White government locks up in jails for disobedience? The US will be incapable of building a better world, here or elsewhere, if White/Black relation is not improved. The West is still unable to differentiate between the human and the politics in discrimination: The West refuses to accept the slaves brought in chains as valid citizens.

          We have got to do what is necessary at the price of expulsion, imprisonment, torture, and death. We have got to do what is necessary so that the next generation of blacks pay the least of the bill for human dignity and political civil rights. The impossible is the least we should demand.

          We are beautiful’ when I was a kid I wondered “when vengeance is consummated then what would become of all that beauty?” There is a law that says “What goes up must come down”: Whites have reached the top of the curve in ignorance and intransigence. The few of the conscious Blacks have to stand up and fire in order to end this racial nightmare; they have to press for real united nation”

          James Arthur Baldwin (1924-87) settled in France and died in France.  He published “The Conversion, 1953” and “The room of Giovanni” where he proclaimed his homosexual inclinations.  Baldwin participated in the first Black Congress in Paris (1956) and met black intellectuals and artists from around the world. He travelled in Europe and Africa and used to return to the US to participate in critical demonstrations and mass rallies.

          Baldwin demanded of Senator Robert Kennedy to convince his brother President John to carry a black kid to the south and register him in white school since the US high Court has recognized this right in 1954.  When Kennedy refused then Baldwin replied: “Nest time, fire it is”  Indeed, the 60’s was plagued by a succession of political assassinations starting by John Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy and many other black leaders.
