A revolution is bloody… A revolution uproots and overturns, everything that gets in its path… Like Malcolm said, if you knew what a revolution was, well you'd get back in the ally.. Let the last poets tell ya, don't speak of revolution… unless your willing to eat rats to survive… Meaning, you gotta know that a revolution will be uncompromising… and very much uncomfortable.
We nowadays are so into comfortably. Not just the black man but all men. Its when your living a life of uncomfortably that a revolutionary mind state stirs. You look at what's going on in north Africa. The people of Egypt and Libya live hard lives… Not the hardest, but hard enough that the illusion of comfort cannot take hold like it does here.
How many here, are willing to fight this white man when they the Superbowl playing on their plasma? How many will wanna stop twitting long enough to develop strategies in a war of attrition? How many are willing to pawn their Ipads, to fund a liberation movement?
We are comfortable… Even our organizations and groups are now too comfy to even try to push for true liberation! If they chart the course for freedom it may hinder them from charting courses in their boats. May keep them from living the life they currently live. This is what plagues our people thru-out, the hells of north america. Even those that tout revolution, many wouldn't even unload a sling shot, let alone some serious weaponry.
We just getting along to get along… We just playing with the idea of liberation… In the next show, we'll talk about how we toy with the idea of freedom and independence… Cause if we were really serious, certain steps would be taken, that just are not. See you then! Hotep!
