51. Now we are all black. They even lynch white people...
I just heard on Pacifica Radio a Malcolm X speech from 1964 where he says the same thing about getting smart to the scam that we are just catching on to.

The brother was definitely on to the scam 40 years before we were.

"We need to get into self-help mode because our white liberal friends are not helping us, our churches are not helping us. Singing 'We Shall Overcome' is not helping us.

What we need is less singing and more swinging!"

Of course, he was advocating militancy over meekness.

I'm merely advocating realizing who are friends and enemies really are and changing our expectations and behaviour.
