    Divide and Conquer, is one of the oldest war tactics in history.
    It's biblical!
    For a divided house cannot stand.
    Black people were once divided along the color line,
    but like everything, the division has evolved.
    The new divisor is black woman vs. black man.
    Black children are merely casualities of this unofficial war.
    Prisons bear witness to this fact.
    Black man I am not your enemy.
    Black man I am part of you.
    I am your Eve.
    To cut you, is like watching myself bleed.
    To kill you is like committing suicide.
    Let us stop committing genocide.
    I lay down my weapons.
    Harsh words that cut deeper than any knife.
    My tongue deadlier than any bullet.
    Black man can we have a cease fire?

    Black woman
    never to stand before u
    in betrayal or defeat
    but in bonding together
    as woman & man
    of hope
    for in thy heart no war
    but loyality & love
    to hit a woman is an act of
    foolishness
    to rape thy woman is dem to hell
    to kill one's woman is killing future
    so i pose no weapons but fight with
    grace & faith in thy eyes of da Father
    for thy woman is our Queeneth

    nice flowing here

    True, we need to be united, to build
    everyone has to remember to keep it real
    to each other, not to some silly mentality
    our communities are crumbling due to this stupidity.


    Keep on keepin' on
