America Continues To Eat Its Young....

Peace All......


This is one of my favorite interviews, coming from Dick Gregory, speaking about the harsh treatment of the youth that are into hip hop culture. I couldn't explain it any better. It exposes the cowardliness of those so called Black community leaders and parents who seem to have left the Black Youth in the lurch, to be eaten by this cannibalistic, dog eat dog system. It also gives us insight on what the Black Race is really trying to achieve, are we trying to achieve true justice, or just trying to get a piece of the pie?

Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik El Shabazz) warned the people in his classic autobiography that the most dangerous person is the ghetto hustler, because of his image, which shows him as one defiant of all civic laws, while those who accuse and attack have yet to give any solutions rather than stand, sit, and sing songs that do nothing to remedy this vicious cycle. I have become a firm believer that evil does not exist as a result of its might, for evil has no true might, but where there is a lack of true righteousness and justice, evil will take root and spread. And this is something that starts with the heart, not with flimsy pieces of paper with so called laws that separates gender, race, class, nationalities and so forth.

This is also why I feel that a Black man as a President of the United States does nothing but give those who championed for "Civil Rights" more ammo to abandon these youth, by actually believing that this was some big momentous victory for the Black Race, and belittle the other movements that took a more aggressive stance to get freedom and justice. We seem to have forgotten terms like tokenism and how colonial powers used people of the oppressed to keep them oppressed, but that's another story altogether. I hope you enjoy. I sure did.
