Sample text

If the problem of meaninglessness, or the absurd, is the root metaphor of modernity, then the African American experience of slavery and racism must be counted a major embodiment of the modern problem of alienation.  In my early youth a great bitterness entered my life and kindled a great ambition.  The paradox in life is that one must be ambitious to be free from that ambition which corrupts and blinds and tempts and distorts.  Who is this descendent of the slave masters to order a descendent of slaves to fight other people in their own country?

One lying with his head pointing north, the other with his head pointing south.  My people came in chains.  The allotments of Providence seem to make the black man of America the open book out of which the American people are to learn lessons of wisdom, power, and goodness.  Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotism of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.

But no one was going to offer me a job.  I could have easily been the victim of mistaken identity or an act of terror by hate­filled white men.
