“Let the record reflect. That when kidnapped, killed, and colonized during the Atlantic Slave Trade. If provided the option. Of that of which ship to sail and/or which slave master to serve. Whether it be the Portuguese, English, Spaniards, or for that matter any contingent of historical thieves. Our allegiance lay with that of the land in which were were snatched, and to those Black Bodies in which were buried at sea. If there be any confusion during the days and age of the American Revolution. As to that of which side we would have been choosing. If we were to be ridin’ wit’ the Brits’ or willing to go to the grave in the name of them other mothafuckah’s that they call the founding forefathers. Let’s just say for arguments sake. That there is a difference between being enslaved and being a mothafuckin’ slave.
Now fast forward to the Civil War... When they say that it was one of the most historical times of divide. The South and The North...Ulysses S. Grant or allegiance to Robert E. Lee. The Union or the Confederate Army. Lets just say, we would have been among that number sangin’ Wade In The Water with the likes of Harriet Tubman. And Pistol Prayin’ with the likes of Reverend Nat Turner. In a day and age in which they say...Democrat or Republican? ...Six or Half a dozen?..Caged by Clinton? Or be put up under the Gun by Trump? We Raise our Heads, Widened our Eyes, and Clinch our Fist!..When we state Who We Wit’!...The Black Panther Party Cubs!...The People!”
