The violence we refused to use against our oppressors is now consuming us from within. We were told not to retaliate when White racist turned hoses on us, spat on us, bombed our homes, burned our churches, and killed our children; so now we kill each over next to nothing.
Today we fail to identify the true source of our problems and pretend that god, schooling, and obedience will save us all. Understand, we are oppressed and oppression breeds violence, anger, and rebellion. You either use that energy to fight your oppressor or the violence that oppression breeds will be used against the oppressed by the oppressed. Our children will not suffer peacefully, groom them for Revolution or accept that they will rebel in less constructive ways.
