Dear my beloved brothers!

I’m sick and tired of the slavery attitude it’s like we show no gratitude!

Your ancestors didn’t die for this! They didnt break their backs with the constant wacks from the whips on their backs for nothing! Or to escape the torment or fight for justice! Can’t you see? These white supremacists are laughing at us, while we make a fuss of the different shades of our skin, instead  we should treat each other like we are from the same kin.

Dear brothers, you really need to wake up! It’s time for a good clean and a mop up! Killing each other over nothing, selling each other over nothing, don’t get angry when the truth is plain and simple, a mad massacre and genocide of the human race is occuring right under your noses, no more flowers or roses, enough of our men are dead not from disease or lynching.

No! It’s from these cowards living among us like fleas who feel this type of animosity should be glorified in music videos and films. Yet! They  read like a 5 year old or can’t annunciate their words, all they know is to flip the bird and scream thug life til I die, the grave they seek is not so mighty and high, I suggest they don’t speak and pray they be among the meek.

Dear brothers, if you’re angry at the system, out learn the system! Get your education and change your community for the better! We need leaders not killers! We need support workers, officers, doctors, lawyers, CEOs, entrepreneurs, teachers, nurses, politicians and many more workers! Look at Marcus Garvey, a man with a vision and it came to reality, his UNIA movement was a threat to the government and establishments across the world, he and his materials were banned, he made an empire!

You know of MLK and Malcolm X, but do you really know of them? Do you know W.E.B Dubois, Frederick Douglass and many others? There’s more to black history than the civil rights movement and the slave trade.

Rise up my brothers for we need a revolution, now! Instead we continue this evolution of the fight of injustice
against racial supremacy. I know it may seem grimacing but this is reality, in all totality we can conquer this disease of hate that still exists ’till this date.
