“Black Innocence?”: a PSA from @Jasiri_X | http://newblackman.blogspot.com/2013/09/black-innocence-psa-from-jasiri-x.html … #1HoodMedia
Dear Readers: Please excuse the poor formatting. It does not reflect the draft, but I can’t figure out how to fix that.
At every stage of the Attack
The sons of God have answered back.
The wind has blown down from the sky
To hear the beauty of their reply.
Lifted, blown by gusts that swirl
To every corner of the world
Their voices carried through the air:
Gifts to people everywhere.
With nothing but their bodies, a sidewalk and a can
They danced with angel’s grace: the dance of “Here I Am !”
They wrote an illustrated epic titled: “Rubble, Heros, Pain”
They autographed each chapter and sent it out by train.
But every broken heart can’t be revolution’s song.
The wounded cannot heal until they can be calm.
We must track down every man who sits inside a cell.
We must free 900,000, and make sure each one is well.
To their sons, lost sentries on guard in every town
We must fight to make this promise, then never let them down
“Your fathers are returning. Rest. We will keep you safe from harm.”
IT TAKES 23 YEARS FOR THE BRAIN OF A MALE HUMAN BEING TO DEVELOP.
FAILURE TO RESPECT INTELLECTUAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, PHYSICAL, CREATIVE, SPIRITUAL, ECONOMIC AND MORAL INTEGRETY WILL BE PROSECUTED AS
GENOCIDE UNDER THE 2014 DOMESTIC TERRORISM ACT
