War with Iran! Are you kidding me? We cannot pretend that the United States is in a position where we can, or have the right, or have the money, to rule the world. We have enough time taking care of things back here at home, where we have 50 million people without healthcare, 40 million people who are out of work, millions of people who are losing their homes, and we’re going to tell the Iranians how to run their country! Are you kidding me!

In a word, the Negro youth starts out with the presumption against him.
