The author is saying that the lack of black unity in this time should be addressed in which they should celebrating their blackness (Black Beauty) to later be able to rise up and overcome. The African Americans in this poem are stating how demeaningful their lives are and the whites are just adding onto it by making themselves more aggressive toward the black race.
