“I can’t be a pessimist, because I am alive.”

Time Wise, on his Facebook posted this video of James Baldwin. In his post he stated:

This is an amazing clip of Baldwin, discussing Malcolm and Martin, but especially the last two minutes, in which he poses the ultimate challenge to white America.

I don’t necessarily agree with his views on the Black Muslim movement but he was speaking from a different time and a different generation. His answers are just (as the video poster states) lucid and so well thought out; his brilliance just shines through.
