“When War is Waged on You/Us. When State Sentries shoot through doors and slay Bettie Jones in her home. When pigs perform public strip searches on Brothahs and Sistahs in the streets when its freezing in the Windy City. When tapped telephones and bugged cellphones become the norm. When there are more babies in Juvenile Detention and more Men and Women in Prison. When Dante Servin does Drive-Bys on Rekia Boyd. When George Hernandez implements a hit on Ronald Johnson. And when James Van Dyke lays down Laquan McDonald. When Fifty Schools are shut down. When massive Mental Health Clinics are closed down within the Black community. When merchants whom don’t look like you are able to sell you sh*t that ain’t no good for you. When everyone you know has or is going through the Cook County Court Doors. When the majority of your mail is Bills, Cut-Off Notices and Letters from the Cook County Jail. When your daily sights consists of Yellow Boots on Cars...Red X’s on Buildings... Church’s and Liquor Stores. When your Daily sounds are Clear Channel Controlled Negroes Bragging about how much Loot they got and How their Vehicles look hot. When so-called Black Talk Radio shows Ban Black Voices. When the Media gives you your spokespersons. When The Mayor and The Machine Covers up The Murdering of You/Us. It is Literally, Figuratively, and Politically incorrect. To submit to the Same State Sanctioned Spokespersons. That The same entity in which has Waged War on You has Provided To You.”
