Provoked Thoughts

"There's a difference between a "nigger" and a Blackman, you see Malcolm X and MLK didn't take assassin's bullets for today's "niggers" to be stacking up black bodies in our urban centers every day. Malcolm and MLK died working for the Blackmen and Blackwomen to be stacking up wins in this oppressed nation. Both Malcolm and MLK believed that black murder was the worse sin, and neither didn't wanna hear anything about niggers guarding turf or beefing about irrelevant things like drugs and paper money. You see killing your Black brothers is certainly not in the least bit funny."
