Richard Henry Pratt first coined the use of the term "racism" in a speech given in 1902 decrying its segregation of peoples. Segregation stagnated the growth and development of segregated peoples and association of races and classes would destroy it. He was also quoted as saying "Kill the Indian...save the man!" which meant that killing the savage culture and language of a people civilized them and made them more acceptable. This is what has happened to all non-European people especially southern and sub-Saharan peoples. As people of African descent, our connection to Africa is the Indian that must be killed in order to save our civilization. The White Gaud is like Richard Henry Pratt. He believes that Black America must expunge itself of Africa in order to survive.
