    Reparations is not about separation, not
    about demonstration, but agitation and
    irritation if there is no compensation
    for plantation cultivation by my people
    satisfaction ain't guaranteed until reparation
    sensations soothes my cogitation cause I'm
    a thinking man and all I think about is
    the jews getting paid the japanese getting
    paid and white men robbing, pillaging, and
    creeping to slave quarters to get laid
    reparations is not a monetary apology but
    due pay for our work in building this
    economy...reparations is not another form
    of affirmative action cause that would be
    play action and I'll pass if I have to
    accept that excuse of an invitation because
    affirmative action has been affirmed dead
    stuffed in a body bag and buried out back
    of the White house by the hands of White men
    who say the "playing field" is level now
    and I say "you've got to be crazy" affirmative
    action has be in motion well before it got
    a name but the game winners were white men
    so it had to get a name to understand what
    CONdition had to be cured...the disease of
    race-ism...but the United snakes of America
    are still infected with an affliction of
    ignorance and mental impotence...so they can't
    get up enough guts to pay us our due bucks
    retroaction of financial interaction is
    only a fraction of what I'm askin' cause
    there is no convolution of the solution of unpaid
    work (forced) prostitution...it's simple...
    check your laws, equal pay for equal work
    and your bill is overdue.

    My conscious Brotha

    I have read this several times (cuz some scribes just be so thick with nutrients). You, my friend, have brought it out PROPER! And I appreciate your thoughts; appreciate that there are still those of us who recognize not only what reparations for PAST injustice SYMBOLIZES...but what it MEANS, TODAY.

    Say it
