The Willie Lynch Letter :: Controlled Language

Cross-breeding completed, for further severance from their original beginning, we must completely annihilate the mother tongue of both the nigger and the new mule and institute a new language that involves the new life's work of both.

You know, language is a peculiar institution. It leads to the heart of a people.

The more a foreigner knows about the language of another country the more he is able to move through all levels of that society.
