The speaker was able to experience all of the things he speaks of by knowing the history and struggles of his people. He relates these struggles in this poem. Although the poem is serious in nature, it does not feel bitter as you read it. Instead I got the feeling that the speaker is trying to show that his race has survived and will continue to survive in the face of struggle.The speaker in "Nice Car, Camille" is someone that has been in love with Camille for a long time.
