    Blak children stand
    in lines/
    to pledge ALLegiance
    led by
    teachers
    conformed minds
    constructed to construct
    the destruct button
    in the AFrican mind
    and the teachers don't even know it
    because they/the teachers are products
    of their environments
    the ED you KKK ation
    of America the free
    the home
    of the brave did anyone
    ever tell
    the blak/african/they
    may still be slaves?

    [mind entrapment]
    [unvisible/in/visible/dentured/servitude
    on a voluntary basis]

    US history - not taught -
    U.S. history fed on a silver platter
    with a wooden spoon
    but all the children
    are thinkin' bling bling...so even the wood
    sounds good
    brainwashed into brachial pulses
    that beat because of
    mistruths/told
    or through Oh MISSION
    "Oh say can you see...."
    not with the wool
    pulled over our eyes
    by blak hands / sheep
    of the culture herders
    vulture.smugglers.com
    .net.org
    origins of blank minds
    again still keep US
    searchin' for the whys?
    and forgetting the
    rest of the ALPHAbet
    not keeping the end in mind
    yet living for immediate
    gratification/stratification
    of the hood.....
    layers upon layers
    upon layers of
    self hate coats the
    eyes of the misguided
    which divides us into
    US and THEM when we
    are all the same hue.............
    yet buy various FA BRICKS
    of different colors from those
    selling our CUL ture to us via
    their capitalistic Killture
    not giving a da...m...n how their
    apparel/shoe/rap record
    pressed and distributed by their
    company/ is bought / sold / stole
    just "get on that corner and
    get me my da...m...n money!"

    I wonder if the negro
    has ever been told they may still
    be slaves?

    As willi linch explained their are many ways to chain and maintain a slave, the least of wich is an actual physical chain. just like a two tun eliphant we have been convenced into believing the impossibility of freedom. Until one day we loose our minds brake free tare some **** up and then take a bullet to the head.
