    Think about all the lives that Stan took
    Think about all the lives Took also shook
    Think about the Brothers armed in the streets
    Think about the cops hiding in the white sheets

    Think back to the Panthers in 72'
    Think about why there remains just a few

    Think about the conditions which led to the CRIPS
    Think about the slain leaders the pigs shot in the hip

    Think about Bunchy, Fred and George Jackson
    Think about Asaata and and ask yourself..

    Why did Ray, Stan and Jamiel
    emulate the Aves instead of Tom Bradley.

    Why did scores of Brothers follow in a
    family of gang-bangers,

    dope slangers,

    crack dealers,

    pimps...playas....and hustlers

    Think about the times that led
    to this condition

    Think about where you were and
    what was your mission..

    in 72' Bambataa started a Nation,
    Zulus from south bronx deep
    down to Soweto

    in south central Crips followed suit
    in the ghetto

    blackexploitation flicks..the mack...shaft.
    yeah, Goldie

    were the role models
    that's what the films told me

    Think.. how have things changed
    since 1972

    When the same crooked cops depicted in black films,
    roam the n-hoods armed to the teeeth,
    pit one set against another
    frame up our Black leaders
    defame their character
    pit us against one another
    got us believing their propaganda
    got us falling for their tricknology
    got us ni@@as still afraid of revolution
    got us ni@@as still divided on solutions
    got us ni@@as calling for us to murder our own
    in the name of in-just-us
    screaming out for the devils to take our own bloodz
    screaming out for the devils to take out our cuz

    yet we say we follow the messenger's teachings
    yet we say that farrakhan's our leader
    yet we say we're down for Black pride
    yet we call out armchair revolutionaries

    So how in the :censored: are you standing on one side of the fence,
    while I'm standing on another

    watching you take a stand against a Brother
    on the same side as "the Other"

    ????

    The media only gives us one side of the truth, if that. The rest we have to discover and realize for ourselves. Keep giving us something to think about.
