Oratory For The Ages
I am linking today with another site so those stopping by can read one of the greatest pieces of oratory I’ve ever read or heard. On this link you’ll find an excerpt from a Richard H. Cain speech on the floor of the House where he was a member from the Republican Party which at the time had the only serving black representatives. Compared to the race baiters today this ex-slave knew hardship and tyranny in its most base form. Representative Cain’s speech, rightly proclaiming denial of education as the worst kind of slavery, should be read by every student in America. Brilliant examples like Richard H. Cain’s speech should be used as a shining beacon illuminating the utter stupidity in resenting and avoiding the education available to our young people today.
