Look at the American Revolution, in 1776. That revolution was for what? For land. Why did they want land? Independence. How was it carried out? Bloodshed. Number one, it was based on land, the basis of independence, and the only way they could get it was bloodshed. The French Revolution—what was it based on? The landless against the landlord. What was it for? Land. How did they get it? Bloodshed. Was no love lost, was no compromise, was no negotiation. I’m telling you, you don’t know what a revolution is. ‘Cause when you find out what it is, you’ll get back in the alley; you’ll get out of the way.
The Russian Revolution—what was it based on? Land. The landless against the landlord. How did they bring it about? Bloodshed. You haven’t got a revolution that doesn’t involve bloodshed.
And you’re afraid to bleed.
I said, you’re afraid to bleed.
As long as the white man sent you to Korea, you bled. He sent you to Germany, you bled. He sent you to the South Pacific to fight the Japanese, you bled. You bleed for white people, but when it comes time to seeing your own churches being bombed and little black girls murdered, you haven’t got no blood.
You bleed when the white man says bleed, you bite when the white man says bite and you bark when the white man says bark. I hate to say this about us, but it’s true. How are you going to be nonviolent in Mississippi, as violent as you were in Korea? How can you justify being nonviolent in Mississippi and Alabama, when your churches are being bombed, and your little girls are being murdered, and at the same time you’re going to get violent with Hitler, and Tojo, and somebody else that you don’t even know?
If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it’s wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it’s wrong for America to draft us and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country.
This just in: there will be more Frank backstory in the mid-season finale, where he hopelessly searches for his missing wife. Tobias Menzies is a GIFT and his acting is SPECTACULAR, and (though Jamie is a verra fine lad) I really do want people to love Frank. #stoked
Thirty years ago, on its opening day in 1984, Donald Trump stood in a dark topcoat on the casino floor at Atlantic City’s Trump Plaza, celebrating his new investment as the finest building in Atlantic City and possibly the nation.
Last week, the Trump Plaza folded and the Trump Taj Mahal filed…
Sometimes you’ve got to just “Tell Him”… #latenightlovesongsessions 💜 xo
They’re being forced to risk their lives, so yeah I would say this is a violation of their right to life.
Everytime I look around, the US Govt, or some part there-of on State or National level; is finding a way to reintroduce slavery.
They don’t need to reintroduce it, it’s never fully went away, 13th amendment:
Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Shit is fucked up and bullshit.
If we want to see increased diversity in the music industry, we must not only support non-white artists, but also work to include more people of color in leadership positions. Artists must also work together to help sustain each other’s careers and not simply their own.
