    financial independence
    creates an illusion of
    freedom

    how can we truly be free
    when rapper Jay-Z can't even
    occupy a space in upper Manhattan
    for his tenancy

    is it just me
    or does a new form
    of racism exist
    segregation has nothing to do with
    this

    the most wealthy affluent whites
    today sit
    high up on a roof
    ignoring the cries of our
    people for they can't really
    handle the truth

    how can we truly
    be free when the
    laws of the state
    puts everyone in
    jeopardy of losing
    their keep

    new tax laws are preying
    upon the ignorant
    minds of black people
    who are still being

    victimized even after
    Jim Crow
    remember Brown versus the
    Board of Education

    today the Bush Administration
    wants to say
    HBCU's are no longer needed
    along with its various forms of
    affirmative action yet our community
    still harbors cases of poor
    economic development

    there is no wonder why
    the quality of education
    is better at Harvard, Yale, or Princeton
    whites have always catered to themselves
    never asking for our permission

    in the state of Alabama
    a new governor under
    the same form of government
    is being inaugurated on
    Martin Luther King's birthday

    making a mockery
    of his name

    can you say

    BAMBOOZLED







    Happy Birthday to the late Martin Luther King :birthday:
