October 17th I posted this poem on this website...

Hanging From a Tree

I just saw on the news black man found on a noose
In a white man's yard, suicide, cops said with the clues
He was an eyewitness to a murder, a white man did it
At least that's what they said, don't take my words as a critic
I just heard it 2 minutes ago didn't get a chance to research
The thought that Wednesday a brother hanging from a tree hurts
This is real! Nothing made up I'm a writing reporter
So I use my paper & ink as my reality recorders
Can't be pissed, because that's how we're expected to react
Hate & racism is still prevalent & that's a natural fact
But is it the case in this case black man found on a white man's tree
I gotta either let the situation be or find out more facts to let my mind free
Man, black man found in a white man's yard hanging from a tree
& they wonder why realists can't fully take these shackles off their feet

This poem is in my book.

I was doing some research on Assata Shakur and I stumbled across this article http://panafrican.tv/product_info.php?products_id=160 (http://panafrican.tv/product_info.php?products_id=160). A face is now attached to my words. I just had to share this people...

Contradictions and Inconsistencies:
1) How is it possible for a person to hang himself while his feet are still touching the ground and knees bent?

excuse me for my ignorance but it is very possible.
i'm asking, why black man cannot go to white mans yard and make suicide. especially if he was hatin on whites (don't know bout this particular person, but as far as i know, great number of black people are racist too.) just think about it...
peace!

Once you understand the origin of people and the relationships between those who are natural and unnatural you would understand how a person possessing deep concentrations of melanin pigmented skin canít be racist. Itís called being reactive. Check your world history and the facts will openly reveal themselves. Listen to the audio on the web link to hear what his mother had to say about the situation. I bring this up not to gross out people but to make people aware of whatís going on.

i dunno. i hate racism, but i still think...no im sure that every race has racists and that disgusts me cuz reaction causes counterreaction which causes countercounter reaction etc. these things won't stop now. they'll only get worse. except if the great miracle will happen... it's sad but it's truth.
peace!

peace!Study what the pilgrims did 50 years after meeting the first Native American and then look at the similarities all over the globe, ever since the Moors civilized the Europeans. Nuff said.
