White men say "You won't stay away from our women, so we'll either incarcerate you, hopefully for life, or we'll kill you." As long as we're in this country, the white man's going to make damn sure black men will be unable to "stand at attention." You're either going to be too damn old, where you'll be unable to ejaculate ever again, or deader than a door nail. That's really what all this is about; no more no less. They DO NOT want Black African wooly-haired children in their damn blood...

I wish ole Massa's progeny would take a chill pill for a few and let the progeny of his kidnapped Africans breathe without any terroristic activity of any kind for about the next 6 years. We won't give you or ourselves any more problems; don't give us anymore. Hell, you're either incarcerating, tasering, beating-up/down, shooting or cooking someone every second.

There are many Gil-Scott Herons. No one black can live in America without getting pissed, at something or another. They're just not acting upon their anger. Yet!!!!! The whole world's people, darker than biscuits, are losing their minds. I imagine it's similar to every one of us receiving mandatory waterboarding twice a week; almost killed; still breathing.

How many treaties did they NOT honor?? Who are these peep? Are they peeps? Who says and where's the proof??? By the appearance...
