Good job, but quoting and understanding are not identical. Your selection is a bit lengthy to explain in one sitting.
This subject is difficult to discuss with reason instead of emotion.
Please allow me to try with the last segment. Try to restrain emotion.
"And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race."
"And inasmuch as they cannot so live" - as two separate cultures in one nation -
"while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white..." - Let us replace 'race' here with 'culture' - and imply that the 'color' of a culture is a matter of choice, unlike skin color.
While we do remain together - as we now assuredly will - we must choose a culture to prevail. We must enlarge the group of so-called 'mainstream blacks' so that the group of 'gangland blacks' is eventually absorbed, at that point we will have a stable society.
...And slavery? Which American black person would trade situations with the one in Monrovia? Don't decide on account of the beautiful shoreline - that, they use for a latrine. Not an emotional condemnation, simply a fact.
"Some households build their own toilets, but these tend to collapse during the seven-month rainy season, Oxfam emergency health engineer Jennifer Lamb told IRIN, so people -------- in the narrow alley-ways between their houses, on the beach, or into plastic bags, which they dump on nearby piles of rubbish or into the sea."
That's where the American black would be now, had their ancestors not been sold to the slave traders. Please discontinue complaining about slavery. No one alive today is guilty, or able to do anything about it.
Dang, I have to go now, to chop some stove wood...
But please, feel better about yourself, American blacks. For everyone's sake.
