Our children are getting killed or violated by white cops, and you have people trying to keep us all calm. For what? If you messed with a bear cub, do you think its mother will be cuddly toward you.
Stop being polite to the enemy!
Get radical. Get mad. Go postal, if necessary. But damnit! Stop responding like scared little chickens, and show our enemy with absolute force that: WE WILL KILL THEM! By any means necessary. If they continue in their actions.
Today, it just seems that Black people have lost their backbone. And this is why white folks keep messing with our communities.
Let’s go back to the late sixties, and early seventies, we didn’t play. “TELL IT LIKE IT IS!!!” That was the cultural norm back then. And we let go.
In the community I grew up in back home in Chicago, no white person dared insult anyone. Why? Because they were not given the license to do that by the Black people in the community through quiet or subliminal acquiescence. They were proud people. Intelligent, articulate and wise. My neighborhood was self-reliant and focused on empowerment for all. When you visited my neighborhood, you saw very attractive Black people who kept their homes and yards immaculate. The children were well cared for, smart, and weren’t used to being called Nigger or being chased home by white kids. Hell no! It wasn’t tolerated. The Black women in my community were considered the most beautiful in the county. Yes! Black beauty was a norm there. Black power was the example, not just a slogan. Many of the residents were not only employed at good corporations, there were plumbers, electricians, military veterans and active members, policemen, fireman,building contractors, very active in the school system, entrepreneurial, and family oriented. The Black men that lived there were strong fathers, who raised strong sons. There was no breakdown of family; most of the children that lived in North Chicago, IL came from 2 parent homes. And white folks who made the mistake of disrespecting anyone in our community, found out quick that we were not going to play around with them. We were Zulu in our mindset. Militarized, organized, and unapologetically African.
One of the reasons why white people have been taking pot-shots at our community and people is because of COWARDICE that is perceived. Europeans are innate bullies. But what I learned as a child was that when you get in their face–and I do mean, nose to nose; show them that African warrior inside who is ready to go to war with them; they will back down. Intrinsically, they are scared of Black people. They are weak and powerless against us physically, thus, when you do what our elders don’t want us to do, ACT LIKE MEN and FIGHT for what you love; ignorant white people who are prone to racist behavior benefit from our inaction.
Stop being afraid to get angry!
Righteous indignation is not a crime. It means you’re intelligent.
Black power is unapologetic!
