    the freedom sound does not
    blare as loud in our comm(hue)nity
    cause melanin scares the man
    since we were delivered on these stolen
    soils and sold on auction blocks
    we've been pigeonholed cointelproed
    and elbowed placed out in the cold
    and hoe-d / we've been pimped since day
    one cause they fear the descendants
    of God's son / implanted deceit that we
    cultivated so now we even hate ourselves
    placed on a reservation called a ghetto
    and raped once again with oppression
    manifested into repression of self manifested
    into regression manifested into brothers
    on corners of (auction) blocks selling rocks
    and firing glocks at their reflections
    instead of those downpressing us
    they want us free enough to spend our greenbacks
    with them but don't want to give us our green
    back for work when our people toiled
    on these stolen secular blood soaked soils
    yes no mo' shackles but the chains
    remain locked on too many African brains
    They don't want us free brother...
    can you walk into a store without too much
    attention the kind that causes stress and
    inner tension? not when you have melanin
    can a brother walk down the street
    without a real fear of making it home?
    can an inner city school get the same
    funding as a "sub"urban school? Or teachers
    that are worth the weight God gave 'em?
    They don't want us free / perpetual brainwashing
    has got us too a point where even we hate
    who we are from the boardroom to the bedroom
    wing tipped psuedoblack men dismissin' their
    kin but real close to one of them, disconnecting
    discommunicating and verbally diseasin' their
    own or brothers smackin' hittin' beatin' the
    queen know what I mean? Our children are
    scared of knowledge but know all the rap songs
    know Micheal Jordan but not Taharka know Lil'
    Kim but not Rosa Parks...yes brother they don't
    want us free not mentally and we as a people
    perpetuate what they indoctrinated /
    and in turn don't want us free either....

    (c)2001 blakverb off da top thinkin'

    brother stay awake and for those you see sleepin' hit 'em with a dose of mental caffeine. we need all the So'ja's we can get.


    (If you didn't know Taharka was a Nubian King of Kush. Check out the book "The African Presence In Ancient America...They Came Before Columbus" by Ivan Van Sertima. It is heavy and good food for a So'ja)

    Thank You

    thanks for your support, yea i know i live it, in the corporate world and back around the way and i mean around the way, you know it strikes me funny too that kids can know every rap lyric every brand named clothes but don't know times table which i had to memorize as a kid and i'm not that old, unbelievable, don't ever feel with me it's all gloom and doom, i just know ONE way and ONE way only thanks for the book titles i will give a look, i have read the KYBALION by the THREE INITATES, this book deals with UNIVERSAL LAW, this book is not for the general public because most people are hypnotized and would call you crazy just considering reading this book, and it's not in general circulation, if you can get this book give it a read it deals with the energy your mind and body produces and how you can influence you daily life thru positive energy projections like i said not for the general public this book deals with spirituality, this no place for material substance in the book strictly meditaton

    So'ja-

    I want to thank you for being a So'ja. You are right it is not all doom and gloom but we have to fight what is. Especially when it comes at a detriment to blak people. I'm going to seek out that book I've heard quite a few people talk about universal law and have been interested.

    $$RICH$$ and GQ-

    we go way back like 8 tracks and exlax (well, maybe not that far, but, ya'll get the point) and you two brothers continually support a blak man. We will hook up somewhere somehow someway before all of this is done. thanks my brothers.

    one love,blak

    verb,

    iron sharpens iron and i know that the word was speaking of you in this scribe for you have grasp the sword named so'ja and sharpened him to a point that only the blessings of GOD and do. man this piece is tight for it recognizes the true gift within So'ja. Street, take this to heart that as long as you have appeared on the boards i have been watching and i commend you for using the gift given to you only to be used by you.

    for those who may not understand what has occurred here: a brother has been lifted up by another brother and the circle of men has sounded off in approval. you thought you was sharp before? cut something now and see what happens...

    So'ja, blakverb, GQ, $$$RICH$$$, Watcher, Bishop, if ever we cross paths, forgive me if i become lost for words for the chance to experience the deepness of each one of you.

    once again...verb this piece is tight and on time...

    MO

    thanks for the love but it's almost scary to meet in one place because there would be too much strength for "THEM" to understand and "THEY" would do everything in "THEIR" power to extingush us because we are the "TRUTH SAYERS"
