“The alternative to being a victim is being free. That’s the alternative to being a victim. Freedom or victimhood. And freedom is far better than victimhood could ever be. That’s free from thought. Free from doubt. Free from all of these things that cause us so much problems. Free from being black. Free from being a man. You know, free from being a human being! I don’t want to be a human being. Human beings hate one another. They kill one another. I want to be a human becoming something other than a human being. I want to be an awakened, enlightened soul, where I can walk on this earth and see everybody on this earth as the beautiful flower that they really are.”
