  • "Sometimes a useful delusion is better than a useless truth. Well, here's one delusion for you: that we can escape slavery. That we can buy our way out from under its scourge. We cannot escape slavery. Its scars will never fade. Even on skin like mine, it will always be with us. When you saw your mother sold off, your father beaten, your sister abused by some boss or master, did you ever think that you would sit here today without chains, without the yoke, among a new family? Everything that you ever knew told you that freedom was a trick. Yet here you are. And I'll tell you something else: Valentine Farm is a delusion. Who told you that the Negro deserved a place of refuge? Who told you that you had that right? That's right. Every minute of your life's suffering has argued otherwise. By every fact of history, it can't exist, so this place must be a delusion, too." (The Underground Railroad, S01E09)
  • "America, too, is a delusion, the grandest one of all. The white race believes, believes with all its heart, that it is their right to take the land, to kill Indians, make war, enslave their brothers. This nation shouldn't exist if there's any justice in the world, for its very foundations are murder, theft, and cruelty. It wouldn't exist, but here we are." (The Underground Railroad, S01E09)
  • "Our color cannot be undone." (The Underground Railroad, S01E09)
  • "The American imperative…is a splendid thing. A beacon…a shining beacon…born of a necessity. Necessity and virtue. Between the hammer and the anvil. Yeah. Conquer and build and civilize. And lift up the lesser races… Well, if not lift up, subjugate. And if not subjugate…exterminate, eliminate. Our destiny…a divine prescription. The American imperative." (The Underground Railroad, S01E09)
  • ♫: Childish Gambino – "This Is America" (The Underground Railroad, S01E09)
