It's been said that in every fight for liberation, comes bloodshed. Nobody wants death, but violence is a reality in the fight for freedom in my opinion. That's not to say that this will determind our freedom or liberation as a people because true revolution starts in the mind. However, even the mental liberation of a people isn't going to stop the enemy from during what needs to happen in order to keep a people oppress, suppressed, and repressed. If all else fails, the enemy will (and I do believe this) make an attempt to use brute force and if yall don't believe me, look at our relations with the Police or with what is happening to the "so-called refugees" in New Orleans. The only way I see necessary under such circumstances is "self-defence" which is a human right especially in the name of freedom. Like Malcolm said "If you're not ready to die for it, put the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary." When I look at certain countries in Africa and Latin America, the oppress in these countries are arming themselves and are willing to sacrifice their lives...That's how much they want to be liberated. There was a Mexican revolutionary by the name of Zapata who once said "It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees"..... Black people....what are your thoughts?
