This is only the beginning: Brothers and sisters, once the enemy sees what the power of our unity can do to his economy, we don't stop there.... »
We look to the past for guidance, but we must move beyond the past. As long as religion becomes dogma and doctrine, and education becomes quotology, and politics is whatever that is, then we become enslaved in a system that wants to bind us to it, rather than grow us from it.

Now, this movement is no "plaything." You heard me say, "Moses was not an integrationist"; he didn’t want to become one with Pharaoh. And why should you want to become one with your 460-year-old oppressor? You can "love" him to your death—but you can’t change him with your love. »
It is imperative that all of us who are in positions of leadership over organizations or churches come together as intelligent human beings to save a generation that will be lost unless we take the proper steps to save our youth. Our youth are suffering. And in truth, it is not their fault.
We’re about to boycott Christmas. You love Christ? Then the hell with “Santa.” Up with Jesus! Down with Santa! Bury him as a liar who is now captivating the people in Jesus’ name. When we start boycotting, and really laying it down ... it’s going to take a great organized effort to really be as successful as we would want to be. »
There can be no freedom, no justice, no equity without the willingness of some to sacrifice for the rest. What good is life if we are not free? What good is it to be alive and every day that you live you see your people suffering? What good is it to be—continue in life under tyranny? »
The time requires that a demand be made on the U.S. government and we must deliver a fearless cry of "Justice Or Else!" We have tried praying in, singing in, lying in and young activists have even employed dying-in to dramatize and appeal for a proper government response to our suffering. »
Who brings the guns into our community? It’s not you. Who brings the drugs into our community? It’s not you. It’s brought in. And oft-times it’s brought in by very rogue policemen themselves. Somebody is profiting from our ignorance. Somebody is profiting from our filth. Somebody is profiting from The Condition of The Black Community. »
A scared-to-death preacher can’t boast in Christ; a preacher that fears the powers that are contemporary, and dismisses The Power of Him Who is Eternally in Power, is not fit to stand before The People of God. This is a Day when all false men and women will be sat down. »
The enemy knows who you are—that's why he's working night and day to destroy the Black male; because he is afraid that The Black Male, awakened, will challenge White Supremacy. »
Everybody is looking for somebody to straighten out a mess that was made, unfortunately, by those in authority. We cannot stem the violence that is here at the bottom, which is an effect, unless we look at the violence that begins at the top, which is the cause. We are the effect of a cause that we did not stem the tide of, and now it’s manifesting in the children. »
I respect the flag of this nation, and I respect the many lives that have been lost defending that flag for governments that have lied to get the American people into war for conquest. But the innocent that died did not know that their government had lied. »
If we are truly his followers, how could we go along with our government if our government is imposing tyranny on any segment of the population here, or any segment of the population on our planet? »
Brothers and sisters, we're in a great time, now, that our unity will propel us to victory. Dr. King said you don't need to talk bad, you don't need to shout, you don’t need to shoot, you don't need to throw a Molotov cocktail—all we need to do is to come together in unity, and use the power of our purchasing to deliver pain, and they will properly respond. »
Thomas Jefferson said, "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and His justice cannot sleep forever." So what is it (justice)? It's "what you sow, you have to reap it"--that law is at work every single day of our lives! »
