    TRANSCRIPT: POWELL: "WHITE RACISM EXCLUDED ADAM CLAYTON POWELL FROM CONGRESS. WHITE RACISM ASSASSINATED MARTIN LUTHER KING JUNIOR. WHITE RACISM IS NOTHING BUT THE ATTITUDE AND THE FRAMEWORK FOR AN ULTIMATE POLICY OF GENOCIDE AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE, THE SAME THING HITLER STAGED AGAINST THE JEW IN EUROPE. LET IT BE KNOWN THAT THIS WEEK STARTED THE BEGINNING OF OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED GENOCIDE IN AMERICA, WHEN MAYOR DALEY OF CHICAGO MADE HISTORY AS THE FIRST PUBLIC OFFICIAL IN THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE, TO LAY THE ADMINISTRATIVE GROUND FOR THE EXTERMINATION OF BLACK PEOPLE. FIRST, HE ORDERED POLICE TO SHOOT TO KILL LOOTERS AND TO KILL ANYONE THAT HAD A MOLOTOV COCKTAIL IN THEIR HANDS - IT SAYS HERE ARSONISTS - BUT HE'S SAYING ANYONE THAT HAD A MOLOTOV COCKTAIL IN THEIR HANDS. THEN TO SHOOT TO MAIM BURGLARS, THEN THEY SHOOT TO CRIPPLE PERSONS FOR DISORDERLY CONDUCT, THEN THOSE WHO BREACH THE PEACE, AND FINALLY, TO SUM IT ALL UP, THE POLICE ARE TO JUST SHOOT NIGGERS JUST FOR BEING NIGGERS."
