1 Quotation from Langston Hughes

flying saucer n. 1952 L. Hughes Simple Discusses News and Gets It All Confused in Chicago Defender 2 Aug. 10/7 The only time colored folks is front page news is when thereโ€™s been a race riot and a whole lot of us have been butchered up.

They probably wonโ€™t even let flying saucers fly over Harlem, just to keep us from seeing one.
