"When recently asked by an individual...What do you do?What do you plan to do? How many people do you have? Do you work with Rev. Sharpton? etc.. I said and I say. We are servants of the people. The streets are our office. Our secretaries are those that you see in the streets. No, we are not the usual suspects or the state sanctioned spokespersons. Though people know of us, most really get to know us, when the conditions and/or individuals are dire and damn near dead and/or dead. We are the Black Cats that go to battle for the masses.We Ride for and from the Wretched of the earth. And the ones that the same system that is slaughtering you. Will tell you to stay away from.We do not simply appear during election season and disappear during the time that they are killing us season.We've been banned from media outlets...mainstream and negroe press alike.We are the ones in the Apple hats and Black jackets. The ones that still say Right on! and What's happening? We are the Commited.. We are from the Community..We are the Cubs!"
