Maya Angelou: Raising the New Generation

Comedian-actor Dave Chappelle explains racism:

“Things like racism are institutionalized. You might not know any bigots. You feel like ‘Well, I don’t hate Black people so I’m not a racist,’ but you benefit from racism. Just by the merit, the color of your skin. The opportunities that you have, you’re privileged in ways that you might not even realize because you haven’t been deprived of certain things. We need to talk about these things in order for them to change.”

Racism in the United States: By the Numbers

H. Rap Brown Breaks down Politics of America on Like It Is w/ Gil Noble

The Politiks of Education Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin (aka) H Rap Brown

We can all learn something from the rebels, or revolutionaries of the past, especially, H Rap Brown a powerful orator from the 60’s movements. The language of the speech within is fairly clean but harsh toward the white oppressor of the that time. It maybe difficult for my white friends and family to endure, oh and yes, I do have white friends and family, all of my family and friends being very dear to me. i believe we all need to digest what was developed in the sixties to fight oppression, and why, that we might better navigate today.

In the sixties our oppressor, was openly called the white man, because that was the oppressor of the world at that time. Today, not that much has changed, save that we know that the oppressor can be any man, of any color, as the true head of the beast is always cloaked behind a puppet, today it wheres a black face, tomorrow it could be yellow, red or white.The seemingly ancient group that oppresses us, cares nothing of Race. The ancient group that oppresses us, cares nothing of Nationality. The group that oppresses us is a global one, and is waging war on us and the indigenous nations of the Mother Earth, seeking to separate all from land and couture, using an ageless process called deracination. (Look it up).

My point is that we, the masses of the world, need to develop the organizing skills to come together through the the truth of the past and today in unity and solidarity,
to defeat a small but unnumbered force, that is cloaked in darkness, ruthless as all hell, and more unified then anything we have ever seen on Mother Earths back previously. They not only have taken control of our governments, but all so our media and many of the minds of our brothers, sister and friends, and I want them back.

I put this out here before you in hopes that the like mined, will understand the grandiose task at hand, and do their do diligence, to do what it takes to destroy the illusion built up around us, washing all bitters of it away, making way to to construct a reality, corner stoned in Truth, Justice and a unity bound together in empathy for one another and the whole the globe. I don’t want to say something corny like we need to be a rainbow, but I would have it no other way, than we keep our wonderful qualities, oust the fear, greed and envy, on our way to oneness toward a seven generational cushion for all of humanity and humankind. Note humankind, as humans don’t willfully kill humans, that psychopathy is put away. Peace and vigilance to all, and Organize, Organize, Organize, Educate and Organize !!
