    Three white boys took him for a ride and he didn't do nothin' 'cept be a negro. Taking a page from Mississippi Burning.


    TERRORISM 101

    We're a forgiving people.
    We're obviously a forgetful people.
    Our lives didn't start September 11th 2001.
    We've been a terrorized people since day one.

    But now look at us, we've ok'd it for our government to profile the brown.
    But never once was it a big deal to profile white boys in pointed hoodies and gowns.
    We've had terrorist cells planted on our land for years.
    They consist of people who had folk in Oklahoma City in tears.

    How much ticker-tape did you see on the bottom of your screen watchin' CNN?
    Did they stop the world as we know i and call it "Operation Catch the Militia man?"

    What was it called when Black families hung from trees?
    What was it called when homes were set on fire and Black mamas prayed on their knees?
    What was it called when young Black girls had white male flesh shoved into them forcefully?
    What was it called when crosses were burned, church goers were stalked and beaten, and my grandparents were spit on walking to school at a time when they were too da*n black to ride the bus?

    So please don't ask me to support your blasting war and to proceed my life with caution.
    We've been doing that since day one and it's rather exhaustin'.
    I'm not looking out for Al Queda man,
    'cause I'm still tramatized my the man in Meridian, MS telling my 10 year old self that he worked for the Klan.

    Please don't ask me to hold your flag with pride.
    I've yet to get my cried-out eyes dry.
    Don't ask me to feel your pain.
    I've tried to explain that same exact feeling to you time and time again.
    You told me to keep my whining to a minimum,
    so I followed directions and held it in, but I'm not going to listen to what you're callin' terrorism.

    Since your day one (9.11.2001),I've been confused about somethin'.
    Do you really think the world hates us because of our so called freedom?
    If you do, our leaders sure know how to con and then lead 'em.

    America has shot, stabbed, diseased, conned, raped, misled, deprived, brainwashed and mistreated their own.
    And they did it right before your eyes.
    Didn't take the time to even use a disguise.

    They've taken your Black N.B.A. stars to the Olympics and sent them to represent the country they love.
    They hold the flag high and proud, the same flag that killed innocent Iraqi Children, jailed many brown Cubans and dropped bombs from above.

    The American way is bloodshed.
    The American way is to lie.
    The American way is money, while the poor child cries.
    The American way is ropes and trees.
    The American way is spreading disease.
    You are an AMERICAN...
    AND SO AM I.

    WE ARE TERRORISTS, JUST NOT IN OUR OWN EYES.






    Know where your flag has flown and why it had the nerve to fly there in the first place.


    Roy.

    THANKS FOR THE LOVE AS USUAL. I had the nerve to watch Mississippi Burning for the 100th time. It just set me off a little and it usually doesn't, but the war were in just makes me made.....because now they want to push this terrorist crap down our throats. It's just sickening sometimes. Much love you all.

    There are those who are now getting a glimpse into what we've been feeling for years. And I'm sure, the feeling is not a comfortable one. You came out blasting with the truth, keep those flows rolling.
