    By the blood Jesus ******* saved?
    By the blood of Jesus we were enslaved!
    By the blood of Martin this nation swayed?
    Or by the blood of Malcolm we turned afraid!
    By the blood of my grandfathers this land grew strong
    By the blood of their grandfathers and broken bones
    By the blood of even White people who died by our sides
    Who shared the same belief that Christ redeemed the right
    But they were wrong because the songs never did apply
    They were wrong because of the Christian way of life
    By the blood of every soldier to ever fight for USA
    By the blood of every black male losing his life everyday
    By the blood of many nations that gave power to this belief
    By deciet then by defeat, and by the ultimates of breach
    By the blood of those now dead
    By the things that were onced said
    By the fight and all the struggles
    By the lynches, marches, and ...strong mothers
    By unity with one another
    Fathers and sons of others WE ARE SAVED!!

    But since that ain't the case
    I can look you in your face
    and ask you honestly
    who's been saved?
    and by whose blood?

    ...here is wisdom.:maddd: :maddd: :maddd: :maddd:

    Questions seldomly ever asked...it is like we are afraid to acknowledge what we know -instead we believe as if we already know but continue to be taught. My children are allowed to learn doctrines but required to know the real. An actual death is reality a spiritual death is not, therefore our existence applies to our physical where death is absolute. The realized blood of my ancestors and forefathers will never be overlooked and given over to someone else's imposed diety. Never.
