    Africa
    Has suffered the worst form of rape
    and i don't wear no super hero cape
    i can't go back to somewhere i've never been
    But i can see from here the tremendous sin
    My Mother Land has been put under
    So i wonder
    Not if to the Land her lost children will return
    But if we can make it back to her lost Glory that we yearn
    And can we in our diaspora where ever it is we be
    Return Africa back to her Glory and help her to get free
    From the grip of the greedy
    That have made her and her children so needy
    What can i do to return Africa and humanity
    Back to the upright position and sanity


    Note: it is unfortunate that the same insanity that landed us in slavery is still prevalent throughout the word that has now become one global villiage. many of the countries and whole continents have become dumping grounds, dupes and ghettos for the slave makers. where ever we are or go or stay we still have the same work before us, and that is to defeat injustice and those who greedily perpetrate it and lie and deceive and try to treat us like less than do do and make us like it or be blind to this reality.
    i stand with you strivers and optimists of every generation, we gone make it right. (insha Allah----G-d Willing)

    Brotha you ask a deep question. Hopefully in our lifetime, someone will have the answer.
