Did we apologize Elijah and Malcolm, and even Dr. King...
for not listening to your wisdom and the song you used to sing ?
Did we apologize Mr. Garvey, for not picking up the pace,
and not heeding to your call which told us, up you mighty race ?

And even you, old Miss Tubman, with a mission never fun...
we apologize for forcing you to free us with a gun.
Angela Davis, Nzinga, and even Sojourner Truth...
I would have loved to have known you, when you were in your youth.

Huey P. Newton, Queen Hatshepsut, down to Assata Shakur,
please accept our humble apologies for not seeing what you saw.
David Walker, Nat Turner, and Noble Drew Ali...
we apologize for failing to be all that we can be.

Hannible, and Tutankhamen and Shaka Zulu too...
we apologize for all the pain our sell outs put you through.
George jackson, Elaine Brown, and Mumia Abu Jamal...
we apologize for not loving you the way you loved us all.

There are so many names, not ordinary,
but people, so extrordinary,
that history tries to hide....
But I apologize for all of us...
who lived and those who died.

So true

As we look around us, we shake our heads for what has taken place is ashame and it does hurt daily. The scheme planned is working that even it has widen out to inflict the same abuses on others, yes nothing new same of thing to make you look dangerous and rob you blind, still we have not woke up!

Wow so there is somebody else out there that has some knowing of assata shakur! They set a bright path for us. It's sad that this generation often strays away from the path. Amazing work

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
