I'm innocent. But they cannot acknowledge my innocence, because
to do so would be to publicly admit their guilt. This is something
these racist people will never do. We must remember brothers, this
is what we're faced with. You must take this endeavor forward. You
must stay strong. You must continue to hold your heads up, and to
be there. And I love you, too, my brother. All of you who are standing

marching black people, black power. Keep marching black people,
black power. Keep marching black people. Keep marching black people.
They are killing me tonight. They are murdering me tonight
