FIRST IN WAR, LAST IN PEACE, AND SELDOM IN THE HEARTS OF OUR COUNTRYMEN.

WE - LIKE MOST OTHER AMERICANS - CAME HERE AS IMMIGRANTS,
BUT MOST IMMIGRANTS CAME VOLUNTARILY, SEEKING FREEDOM AND A CHANCE
TO SURVIVE. MY ANCESTORS CAME IN CHAINS, HUSBAND TORN FROM WIFE,
CHILD FROM MOTHER.

IN A LAND WHERE FAMILY AND EDUCATION ARE VENERATED, WE WERE
DENIED THE CHANCE TO LEARN AND TO MAINTAIN A STABLE FAMILY UNITY. IN
A COUNTRY POPULATED WITH SUFFERERS FROM RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION , WE
FOUND A STRANGE AND ALIEN RELIGION FORCED UPON US.

WHILE WE CAME FROM A LAND WHOSE INHABITANTS BELIEVED IN COMMUNALISM
AND THE EXTENDED FAMILY, WE FOUND CREATED HERE A SYSTEM OF MERCANTILE
CAPITALISM THAT EXACTLY FITTED THE CASH BOX MENTALITY OF THE FOUNDING
FATHERS.

FROM THAT DAY TO THIS, THE SEPARATE STATUS OF BLACK PEOPLE HERE
HAS BEEN A FACT. FROM THAT DAY TO THIS, WE HAVE BEEN THE AFRICANS,
SUFFERING AT THE HANDS OF THE EUROPEANS.
