Years ago it was proposed to me...

"Years ago it was proposed to me. That we raise funds to reface the tombstone of my Father, our Chairman... Chairman Fred Hampton. 

Being that law enforcement annually shoots up the front of his tombstone. In which I respectfully opposed the motion. In which I still stand by. Being that there comes a time in which euphemisms must be relinquished. 

Perfume should no longer be put on the political stench of our situation. Make up should not be placed upon the face of the battered Woman. Curtains should be drawn and the pains unveiled! No longer should state sanctioned palatable punks. Be propped up as the peoples spokespersons. When CHIRAQ! should be called that...The warzone that it is. And the war that has and is being waged upon the people. Directly and indirectly. A time for brutal terms to describe brutal realities.

When we declare our imprisonment as that of mass kidnappings. Our bonds as ransoms and Correctional Centers as Concentration Camps. Gentrification as Land Grabs. There comes a time in which Bullsh*t must be distinguished from the Business. A time to distinguish the criminals from the victims. And those of whom are complicit from those who are resisting. There comes a time!"
