There was a time when we stood together and at least GOT TOGETHER when **** like this happened. There was a time when our leaders actually made sacrifices and spoke out against this racist caste system that leads to the murder of our young men, disenfranchisement and disrespect of our black women, and ultimate destruction of our black community. At least our artists would, like Nina Simone, Bob Marley, Tupac, Dead Prez, Lauryn Hill, Eryka, etc.. But I'm not hearing too much right now in that way.

Why do you think that is?

I don't know.. where you been?..

... and how effective has that been anyway? ..getting together ..our singers singing songs.. and our speakers speaking speeches.. ? at some point your going to have to realize that brutalizers can't be shamed.. or sang.. or spoke.. or guilted out of their brutality. This is what they do.. and we are who they do it too.. And at some point we are going to realize that they actually like the noise we make of our pain.. it's part of their emotional payoff. They like to know that what they are doing is hurting us.. it is, afterall, why they do it--to hurt us.
