"What kind of people?"

"Black people?"

"No, no, no! One is blue black, one is reddish, and one is kind of yellow, like you. You see, black people can be all colors, because all colors come from black, but black itself is not a color. You got that?"

By this time, I had taken out pen and paper to jot down this copious lecture. Across the street was the handsome First Presbyterian Church. Built in the Greek Revival style, it hides what's left of Colonel Johann Rall, commander of German mercenaries during the pivotal Battle of Trenton in 1776. George Washington, his conqueror, now stands atop a fluted column lording over this city. When the monument was unveiled in 1893, the New York Times deemed it "the greatest day in the history of New Jersey."

Satisfied at having an eager student, the dude presented me with his profile, to appear more melodramatic against the slanting sunlight, then continued, "The pyramids are also a lot older than what the white man says. They're more than 150,000 years old, and so is Angkor Wat! Do you know that light bulbs were found inside the pyramids? And batteries too, but all these facts have to be suppressed by the white man, because the white man can never admit that the Naga race, the so-called n-word race, reached a higher level of civilization thousands of years ago, when the white man was still living in caves!"

As he was talking, a passerby saluted him, "Peace! God!" So he asked me, "Did you hear that?"


"What he said."

"Peace? God?"

"Yes. Peace! God! He called me a God, because I am a God. Every black man is a God, and you, as a colored person is also a God, but the white man is a corruption. He is in fact the devil, you heard me, and his days are numbered. A black scientist created the white man 6,600 years ago, but it's time for the black race to reassert his superiority. Look, look," and he pointed to his head, arm, leg, leg and arm in turns, "what do you have?"

"What do you mean?"

"What does that spell? The first word of each!"

"Yes, Allah!"

"But what does it mean? It's just a linguistic accident, man! If we were talking another language, you wouldn't have Allah at all!"

"But we are speaking English, and English is the universal language. This is no accident. The time for Allah has come, and it will happen here, in America."
