Interview with Sonny Wright
QUESTION 7
INTERVIEWER:

Tell me about it.

SONNY WRIGHT:

It was a shame. A real sad thing. And the real shame and the real sadness is that you know, when are we going to learn? I mean, when are the White people going to learn that in order for everybody to live in this community and, and enjoy the, the, the natural resources that God has given us, our God-given resources in this beautiful city, that everybody has to have an opportunity to share in that? When are the Cubans going to learn that their blessings they've discovered in this community uh, need to be shared with others in this community? When are the Black people going to learn that we're going to have to work a little harder if we want our piece of the pie? And we're going to have to start working together. And when are we as a community going to learn that by working together and doing all the things that people should do to make a strong community, that everybody benefits. There's no losers. You know, if you have a cancerous sore on your arm and you neglect it, I mean, your whole body will deteriorate and you'll die. And that's what's happening here. I mean, one segment of our community cannot seem to get itself together. Now, you know, it's the thing where I believe that it was going to require more understanding and more sincere commitment on the part of all of us to make this community what it really ought to be.

Stop.
