Race and class contradictions, communications and/or lack thereof.

"Comedic genius Richard Pryor once commented that white folks will say 'I don't believe that police are just shooting those black folks...'  I recognize that not only the race but as well as the class contradictions hamper and impede everything ranging from potential coalitions to ability to communicate with one another.  For trying to explain to some people why Rachel Jeantel views it as normal of not calling the police.  Or black folks basic lack of faith in the American Just-US system.  Or how the colonized community simply knows what the designated state sanctioned spokesperson is going to say.  

When the news media brings him/her up to speak. What Civil rights 'representative', what University of Chicago human lab rat or person they've literally produced out of petri dish to portray and betray the legacy of such organizations as the Black Panther Party.

What entertainers and rappers will be brought out to perform in times of conflict.  Why a 12 yr. old child would 'confess' to something he/she didn't do. After a torture/investigation session led by one of the infamous Chicago Lt. Jon 'the torturer' Burge and Joe 'machine gun' Gorman.  Why would prisoners and protesters from California to Mexico utilize hunger strikes as a means of protest.  Why aren't authentic movements acknowledged until it become safe to speak about them. What is happening in CHIRAQ! Can be likened to trying to explain to Seinfeild or Cosby parents as to why James Evans from Good Times could never keep a job. For they have no fuckin 'frame of reference." -Chairman Fred Hampton Jr.  POCC/BPPC
