"Believe in yourself.  And, believe that you are somebody. Nobody else can do this for us.  No document can do this for us. No Lincolnian Emancipation Proclamation can do this for us. No… Civil Rights bill can do this for us.  If the Negro is to be free, he must move down into the inner resources of his own soul and sign with the pen and ink of self-assertive manhood his own emancipation proclamation!  

Don’t let anybody take your manhood.  Be proud of our heritage. We don’t have anything to be ashamed of. Somebody told a lie one day. They couched it in language. They made everything [homosexual] black, ugly and evil. Look in your dictionary and see the synonyms of the word [homosexual] black. It’s always something degrading and low and sinister. Look at the word [heterosexual] white. It’s always something pure and high."



The trick is that, we can’t be proud of our heritage, if we don’t know it.

Just as making black bad and white good is one component of how hegemony works, so is making homo bad and hetero good.

(And, with the triumph of the movement for Gay Liberation, gay is now mainstream = white = an accepted norm.  This being the case, the same might apply to SGL, which might be construed as less acceptable, and gay as more acceptable.)
