THIS IS YO SEASON

I CAN’T EXPECT YOU TO REMEMBER, RECALL OR RETROSPECT IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TAUGHT, INTRODUCED OR HEARD ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE ATTACHED, WHAT IS IN YOUR DNA, WHO YOU REALLY ARE BECASUE WHAT WE HEAR, WHAT WE SEE AND WHAT WE ARE WITNESSING IS INDEED NOT WHO YOU ARE

ALL OF YOU HAVE HEARD IS THAT YOU ARE CRIMINAL, YOU ARE VIOLENT AND ONLY IN SCHOOLS SHOULD YOU BE PROTECTED BUT IT REALLY ISN’T YOU, ITS THESE WHITE TEACHERS THEY WANT TO FEEL SAFE AND PROTECTED INSIDE OF OUR INNER CITY SCHOOLS, THEY AREN’T WORRIED ABOUT YOU OR YOUR PARENTS.

THEY STOPPED PARENTS FROM COMING INTO THE BUILDINGS SO THESE TEACHERS WONT’ BE CAUGHT GROOMING OUR CHILDREN INSIDE OF THE BUILDING

HERE THINKING ON CALIFORNIA AND THE GUMMNA SAYING NO REPARATIONS

HERE THINKING ON FLORIDA AND THE GUMMNA SAYING NO TEACHING OF OUR AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY

WHY?

NOTHING HAS CHANGED, BLACK LABOR IS STILL NEEDED, EXPECTED AND COVETED TO PRODUCE WHITE WEALTH

WE WORK FROM SUNNUP TO SUNDOWN AND HAVE LEARNED TO BE GRATEFUL, THANKFUL AND ACCEPTING OF CRUMBS

THEY ARE WELL AWARE THAT IF WE LEARNED OUR TRUTH AND THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS COUNTRY, WE WOULD UNDERSTAND THAT WHICH WE ALREADY KNOW BUT THEIR CHILDREN WILL LEARN IT THAT THEY WOULD BE NOTHING, HAVE NOTHING AND OWN NOTHING HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR SLAVERY

WE BUILT THIS COUNTRY

WE GOT THE ECONOMIC ENGINE GOING

WE SLAVED TO ASSURE THEIR COMFORT, OPULENT LIFESTYLE AND WEALTH

THEY ONLY CAME UP WITH LAWS, RULES, CODES, MANDATES, POLICIES AND LEGISLATION TO PERPETUATE IT. THEY WERE JUST RENAMED, REINVISIONED, REIMAGINED, REPACKAGED AND REWRITTEN BUT THE ROOT WAS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE SAME AND THAT IS TO CONTROL THE LANGUAGE AND KEEP BLACKS IN OUR PLACE AND THAT IS OPPRESSED, IN LACK AND UNABLE TO DIG UP AND OUT OF IT

I SHARE WITH MY YOUNG PEOPLE, LANGUAGE IS PECULIAR THING:

YOUR ANCESTORS USED HAIR BRAIDS TO CREATE MAPS TO FREEDOM

YOUR ANCESTORS PUT RICE IN THE BRAIDS JUST SO THEY CAN HAVE ENERGY AS THE MARCHED TO FREEDOM

YOUR ANCESTORS TOOK THINGS TO OPRESS, DEMEAN AND CAUSE LOW SELF ESTEEM AND MADE IT FASHIONABLE

FOR THE PAST 500 PLUS YEARS YOUR ANCESTORS DID A THING THAT GOT US HERE:

THEY TOOK NO AND SAID, IT’S ON

THEY TOOK OPPRESSION AND MADE OPPORTUNITIES

THEY TOOK MALTREATMENT AND PRODUCED MAGIC

THEY TOOK LONLINESS TO LEGACIES

THEY TOOK TORMENT TO TEACHERS

THEY TOOK STRUGGLING TO SAVE

THEY TOOK CHAINS TO BE CHAMPIONS

THEY TOOK PRESSURE AND PRODUCED GREATNESS

EVERY OBSTACLE

EVERY HARDSHIP

EVERY ATTEMPT TO SILENCE, DENY, REJECT, OMIT AND EXCLUDE WE DID IT BIGGER, BETTER, TOGETHER WITH NOTHING AND LESS SO DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE ABOUT WHAT YOU NEED, WHO YOU NEED TO BE CONNECTED AND OTHER TRUMPED UP LIES TO GET MONEY OR MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU NEED TO INVEST IN THIS, THAT OR THE OTHER; WE ARE THE REASON AMERICA IS

THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN’T DO, THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN’T ACHIEVE, THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN’T MASTER AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN’T ACCOMPLISH WITH YOUR SISTER AND YOUR BROTHER
