If I die, it will be in a good cause.
I’ve been fighting for America just
as much as the soldiers in Vietnam.
I do not believe in violence either by
whites or Negroes. That is why I am
working tirelessly with the NAACP in
a peaceful struggle for justice.
When I go to Hades, I’m going to raise
hell all over Hades till I get to the white
section. For the next 15 years we here
in Mississippi are going to have to do
a lot of shooting to protect our wives
and children from a lot of bad niggers.
