"If the CIA slips me something and next week you don't see me, you'll all know what happened"- New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin
Big up Kanye.
So big up Kanye. You were the first person I have seen express actual emotion over the genocide currently being executed here in the United States Of America. None of this dead eyed, fake ass, truth-avoiding bullshit.
Watch the thing. Look at his eyes! It is All about the eyes. There lies truth. His eyes were red, wet, like mine, he was shaking, he was stuttering, and he was not about to CloneRead no Skygoddamned autocue.
He hasn't been coopeted. He has reached the higher echelons of the "alternative elite" they turned music into, and he has kept his humanity. He spoke the truth, that everybody else in his position was either too scared too, or too dead to. The truth.
They are out there shooting at our people. Our hungry ass, terrified, desperate, abandoned people. And the media is making out like they some Skygoddamned savages, who deserve all they get.
And George Bush does not give a fuck about black people.
Now I'm hearing these arguments, "he did it to sell records", "its a poor thing, not a race thing." Yadda yadda.
1: Dixie Chicks.
2: The vast majority of those left to rot in piss and shit have been black.
Now, it is a poor people thing. This NeoCon freakshow has deliberately engineered a huge slave class, by driving illegal immigrants over the border to work for peanut shells, by destroying industry, by raping welfare, outsourcing, downsizing, privatising. They don't care if your Mexican, African, European - they will pimp your ass until it breaks and it bleeds.
But, since Abe freed those black slaves to wander the streets homeless, they have been Poor. And before that they was Slaves.
Racism never went anywhere. It just had to change its face a little. The end result is the same.
Even Fox can't lie All day. Watch this! Watch it!
If we don't all take whatever opportunity we have to speak the truth, and say what we actually fucking feel, not what we think is appropriate, about this genocide, we are SLAVES. Our fate is a big dome full of piss and shit and death. And I ain't fucking kidding. If those goons see they can get away with this, do not doubt it will happen again, and soon.
From the website of the American Red Cross, their disaster FAQ: Why is the Red Cross not in New Orleans?
Access to New Orleans is controlled by the National Guard and local authorities and while we are in constant contact with them, we simply cannot enter New Orleans against their orders.
The state Homeland Security Department had requested--and continues to request--that the American Red Cross not come back into New Orleans following the hurricane. Our presence would keep people from evacuating and encourage others to come into the city.
