    Exploration of the European nations.
    Bringing disease, destruction, & displacement
    2 this land's original civilizations.
    History books make it look nice & teach us that
    they were escaping religious persecution.
    But when they arrived here, the Pilgrims
    began teaching their homeland's religion.
    And someone had 2 kill off the Native AmeriKKKans.
    Scores upon scores of European scum
    begins 2 reach this stolen land's shores.
    England's judicial system used their new land to banish
    thieves, rapists, murderers & whores.

    Introducing, slavery.
    There's no better profit than one made from others laboring.
    And if U can get if 4 free?
    But we gotta get a man that's not human.
    Hmm...These Indians are savages & they're a different hue, man.
    But the harsh conditions & diseases killed 'em,
    & the others knew the land much better than the enslaver.
    Let's get Afrikans, cuz if they run, we can find 'em,
    & it'll be easier 2 alter their behavior.
    If we whip 'em, brand 'em, maim 'em & hang 'em...
    In public.

    Centuries pass & they insist nothing's wrong with human bondage.
    So they outlaw importing Afrikans & concentrate on breeding.
    And since the Northern states made so much money from
    the Southern states' slavery powered industry, they began planning
    on seceeding.
    And becoming their own nation of Confederate states.
    With Jefferson Davis as their President.
    But once again, history books teach us the Civil War was fought
    to end human enslavement.
    If U check it out, the Emancipation Proclamation ended slavery
    in states of rebellion.
    Which means slavery still existed in Washington D.C., Virginia,
    & Maryland.

    Calling...
    The mass immigration of people from Poland, Ireland, Italy...
    The 1st sight upon reaching AmeriKKKa was the Statue of Liberty,
    asking 4 the tired, the poor, & the masses yearning 2 breathe free.
    They were forced 2 fight in a war they knew nothing about.
    That was part of the cause of the murderous mobs
    running through the streets assaulting anyone black they saw.
    They competed 4 jobs, settling 4 lesser pay in hopes
    that they were the ones hired.
    They worked long hours in brutal conditions causing many
    2 die before they were old enough 2 retire.
    Soup lines became common, slums worsened, & there was
    a tremendous rise in crimes.
    Police became more corrupt along with politicians
    as different Mafias were being organized.
    And each nationality was belittled by the previous immigrant group.
    The AmeriKKKan way of racism & hatred was rapidly introduced.

    Times haven't changed much except 4
    AmeriKKKa's ability in conducting business.
    AmeriKKKa is the world's number 1 ranked extortionist.
    They automatically take money out of your paycheck,
    & if in April U somehow owe more, they'll send their strong-armers,
    the IRS.
    They have the power 2 turn a rich man poor, man.
    If U become what they call a troublemaker & U get on their bad side,
    They'll send their hitmen that go by the acronyms CIA & FBI.
    Ssshh...
    I think I heard something.

    Thank U highly, Bluewater.

    $$, peace.

    Angelic, I can't thank U enuf, U have done my soul much justice.

    triniti, my people are my inspiration, so keep being U and inspire me.

    XX, big up.

    Khasm, I wnna tell U 2 blackhand 'em, but that just wouldn't be right, or would it?
    Peace, brother.

    Foxy, thank U for grasping the lesson, each one teach one.

    Royal_T, without realness, we would be a bunch of mindless daydreamers.
    It's time 2 wake up from the nightmare and live in the realness, only then will we change it.

    Peace fam.

    One love.
