Revolutionary greetings Comrades!
June is here!! I’m excited as hell!! I should be getting out of Ad-Seg any day now and T.D.C.J. has been placed under scrutiny because of a fabricated disciplinary write-up scandal at Ramsey Unit (Rosharon, Texas)! All I can say is: I told y’all so! This is a pervasive and systematic problem inside Texas prisons!
It’s hard enough to make parole down here – but now we have to contend with prison guards writing bogus cases and sabotaging our freedom! I am a witness. Now let’s get down to business, shall we?
Let us talk about South Carolina. I almost fell for the bogus media propaganda delivered to the public by the corporate-owned media in South Caroline when they reported about the prisoner deaths at Lee Correctional. It has been my experience that most, not all – but most mainstream media outlets are in lockstep with the bigots and racists who operate these slave kamps and gulags in the South!
Yeah! Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Mississippi modern day bigots!
So the state throws out these false narratives that all this bloodshed in South Carolina was over cell phone, drugs, territory, gang violence, etc. No-one is talking about the gross lack of Education and Rehabilitation programs in South Carolina. Why is that??
No one is talking about the overcrowding and inhumane living conditions in South Carolina. Legislators there have virtually ignored the humyn beings in these prisons. They created the crisis with their inattentiveness and then when tragedy hits they blame the people with the least amount of power to change their condition. Now stop right there!
Who says we have no power? Oh, we have power, should we choose to use it collectively. August 21st through September 9th you can help us exercise our rights by supporting all of us as we withdraw our Free prison labor!!
Now I am going to leave y’all right now and ask that you ponder on the words of the late, great founder of Black Liberation Theology – the iconic reverend Dr James Cone. He said:
“There can be no reconciliation with masters as long as they are masters, no reconciliation as long as men [and wimmin] are in prison. There can be no communication between the masters and the slave, until masters no longer exist as masters, are no longer present as masters.
The Christian task is to rebel against all masters, destroying their pretensions to authority and ridiculing the symbols of power. However, it must be remembered that oppressors never take kindly to those who question their authority. They do not like thugs and bums, people who disregard their power. And they will try to silence them any way they can. But if we believe that our humanity transcends them, and is not dependent upon their goodwill, then we can fight against them, even though it may mean death.” (end of quote).
Swift Justice of the Free Alabama Movement has said he has heard of prisoners saying: “I will die for mines.” And you know what? Me, Kinetic Justice, Bennu Hannibal Ra-Sun, we been thinking a little and we want to know what is “mines?” Define that! Is it a cellphone you’d die for? Perhaps you’d die fo a K-2 square? Well what about your freedom? What about your dignity as a humyn being? Y’all better wake the hell up because this is not a game. Seems like we have misplaced our priorities! I’ll holler! P.E.A.C.E.
Dare to struggle, dare to win.
All power to the people!
