Chapter One

RADICAL THOUGHTS

      The Grid


    Probable cause
    To attempt to change the laws
    Unjust sentencing
    Murder the most heinous crime
    Judges take bribes
    134 years for armed robbery
    23 years for 2nd degree murder
    Souls stuck in purgatory
    What's more gory?
    Death toll in Indonesia
    Car's brother's murders'
    Unsolved mysteries
    Closed cases
    Presidential Debating
    Gay's liberating
    Tourist trips to space
    Just smacked you in the face
    A robot dancing on mars
    Sending back data
    People just chatter, no stand up action
    Why?
    Like T.I. said watch what you say
    Might just get locked away
    Political prisoner Assasta Shakur

    Do your research, racism overt
    Don't be fooled by the Presidential selection
    Like condoms, use protection
    Vote in all areas, not just the presidency
    Then we can claim head of household
    Like on tax forms
    To a small extent we win
    Until Electoral College factors in
    Back to the begin
    Un-just.


      Damn It!

    You Damn Right I'm a Radical!
    Philosophical, & Analytical
    With precise observation
    We might save civilization
    THEN ... maybe not
    Pollution, Evolution of man
    Wears, and Tears
    Extinct Polar Bears
    Giraffe's, and Hippo's
    Gain Weight, Get LYPO
    Suction
    Babies bypass like periods
    Lucky Idiots, Hit the Lottery
    then go broke
    "Nigga's' Complain, then don't Vote
    Many voted, but still Died
    2 shots, and you lived
    2 shots, he said good-bye
    What's a cookie with no Chocolate chips?
    Here's a Tip, Heads or Tails
    Tails follow Heads
    Flip the Quarter don't Worry!!!


      Dust

    Rebel with a Cause
    Society never my downfall
    I'll never crawl
    Beg for mercy
    Take my head
    Truth I'll never denounce
    I pronounced
    All accusations correctly
    CIA controls illegal drug distribution
    Implemented chips for population control
    Clinton Correction Facility
    Targets non-violent drug abusers
    New Age Slavery

    Where is the New Age Bravery!
    Bobby Seals, Malcolm X, and Marcus Garvey
    Todays
    Names I won't display
    Who enormously give back to charity
    Finance education, stability, and future growth in Africa
    What about AMERICA?

    Our Ancestors still shout for their toil, un-paid wages
    Exploited dummy stages
    Set up of the Black Panther Party
    Syphilis tested on Blacks
    How do we get our real last names back?
    NEVER
    Bloodline lost, how do you re-pay that loss?


      Mission Accomplished

    TRUTH HURTS
    EXPECIALLY WHEN WHITE IS ALWAYS RIGHT
    ALEXANDER THE GREAT
    AMERICA THE GREAT
    GET IT? JOKES OVER!

    NEOPOLAN, JOESPH STALIN & HITLER
    MESSANGERS OF EARTH & WATER
    SET OUT TO CONQUER MANKIND
    SO, WHY ARE WE SO BLIND?
    NIEVE TO OUR GOVERNMENTS CONSPIRACY TO ENSLAVE
    US ALL
    AS IF IT HASN'T HAPPENED IN PAST YEARS

    WHO NEEDS A HISTORY LESSON
    DEMOCRACY IS A LIE
    A LITTLE FREEDOM KEEPS US SHY FROM TRUTH
    DICTATORSHIP REPRESENTS THE REMAINS OF SURVIVORS
    WHO WERE STARVEN, BEATEN, RAVISHED & RAPED!

    THE PRESIDENT DOESN'T WATCH HIS SHEEP
    HE IS A MEIR TOOL, SIMULAR TO A FOOL
    PLEASANTLY PUT A "SPOKESPERSON"

    OBAMA O8"
    I'M GLAD TO SEE
    ONLY DUE TO MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
    JUST BECAUSE HE RESEMBLES ME
    I MUST STILL SPREAD TRUTH
    HE REPRESENTS THE "LESSER OF TWO EVILS"
    SO, WE MUST STAY DOWN
    MY PEOPLE GET OUT AND VOTE
    NOT FOR HILARY CLINTON,
    BUT, FOR THE MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
    THE DAY EVERY SLAVE DIED TO SEE, EQUALITY
    THEN, AFTER THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
    YOUR FUTURE IS STILL THEIR'S TO CLAIM!

*** I put this excerpt here from a book called A Racial Programme for the Twentieth Century by Israel Cohen in 1913. This is an example of how race have been used to manipulate the masses throughout the years. ***

"We must realize that our party's most powerful weapon is racial-tension. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races, that for centuries they have been oppressed by the Whites, we can move them to the program of the communist party. In America; we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the Whites; we will instill the whites a guilt—complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise to prominence in every walk of life, in the professions, and in the world of sports & entertainment. With this prestige; the Negro will be able to intermarry with the Whites and began a process which will deliver America to our cause."

      Brainstorming

    This is the demonstration
    Crimes against humanity
    Have no real re-precautions
    Our government
    Guilty of pre-meditated genocide
    Proofs of a conspiracy
    Still exists
    Take the risk
    Search for truth
    Seek to gain
    New world order
    Not a game
    A scary spooky claim
    Due to certain altercations
    Alienations
    Rights deigned, then granted
    I've seen the scheme
    Erased that "Dream"
    Which, encouraged so many
    Catch the "Time"
    Majority, the minority
    Only in numbers
    Amplify the mental
    Match the "Wits"
    Patch the quilt

    Create the New Illuminated Bloodlines
    Tailgating the blueprint
    Left behind footprints
    Bilderbergers and the Rockefellers
    Rothschild's and the Kennedy's
    I got the remedy
    We the people
    Create the sequel!


      In The Midst

    SIMULTANEOUS ERRORS
    REASON BEING, OUT OF OUR CONTROL
    DAILY DECISONS MADE ON "OUR" BEHALF
    I DASH
    @ THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPOSE
    OPERATION POPULATION DETERIATION
    ALL COALS DON'T TURN TO DIAMONDS
    LIKE HOOD RATS TO HOUSEWIVES
    RIGGED DICE = LIFE
    AN I ADD TO THE DIARY
    WHERE IS TRUTH BEHIND CONSPIRACY?
    I BEGAN TO QUESTION IT ALL
    LIKE BRITANY SPEARS DOWN FALL
    MAYA ANGELOU'S STILL I RAISE
    TAMARA ALLEN'S UN-CLAIMED PRIZE
    BEEN WRITING SINCE TEN
    LOVE MY PEN, BOWARROWED, OR OWNED
    WRITING ON DIRTY NAPKINS AT THE BAR
    AS LONG AS WERE HUMAN BEINGS
    DICTATORSHIPS REDEAMS
    SOCIAL CLASS TAKES THE PLACE OF RASICM
    IS IT A BLACK THING, OR IS A PEOPLE THING?
    DID YOU KNOW GOLD STOCK IS UP?
    (0) ZERO EQUALS BUCK
    YOU KNOW ... $ THE DOLLAR BILL
    SHIT, OIL SPILL WAS ONLY AN ADDITON

    NOW FORGOTTEN
    NEW WORLD ADVISORY
    INTERNET SENSOR
    SO THEY EDITED THE OBAMA DECEPTION
    KNEW IT ALTER YOUR PERCEPTION
    BLACK, AND SOLD
    DAYS OF OUR LIVES
    NOW THEY GOT A SOAP CALLED CLAY
    YOU "NIGGAS" WASH THAT SKIN AWAY
    WHAT AN ANIMATED PLAY
    I DAMN NEAR GIVE UP, TRYING TO KEEP UP
    DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO TO TARGET,
    BULLSEYE!
    3 STRIKES YOU'RE OUT
    ANOTHER DROUGHT, D-BOYS SHOUT
    WHILE GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE GOT YOU LAZY
    FOOD STAMPS SOLD DAILY
    WHAT HUNGRY BABIES?
    CHEATING THE SYSTEM, THAT BEATS YOU
    TO THINE SELF I ALWAYS STAY TRUE
    Philosophizing WITH NO DOCTORATE
    COLLEGE RIP OFF, GIRLS STRIP OFF
    GUYS GET OFF, NOW THE LIGHTS TURNED OFF
    LET'S SEE HOW DO I END, WHEN THERE IS NO BLEND
    PEOPLE MEASURE SIN ON LEVELS, BUT THEY ALL THE SAME
    THIEF OR ADULTRY
    WE ALL STRIVNG TO BE


      Trap Musiq

    6.7 million Used
    1.3 received treatment
    So imprison those who serve
    What's in demand?
    Command, Control, Alt Delete
    Quit's the application
    If you want to end illegal drug distribution
    Legalize
    Since beginning of mankind
    Folk been getting "High"
    Rather it be earth grown mushrooms
    Man Made meth
    Ecstasy beaming you the moon
    So you thought ... shit
    Sex is a Drug
    Work is a Drug
    Food is a drug
    Anything you do excessively
    Due to your depression see
    Even those happy want the high
    Floating while standing still
    Rather it be 2 seconds like Crack
    Or Hours like a Double Stack Transformer
    Zebra print purple & pink power ranger
    Consumers the dummies
    Government posing like Gumby

    All friendly
    They floating the shit in
    We didn't land on Plymouth Rock!
    You heard it before, need I quote
    Illegal drug distribution without a tax stamp
    All "They" want is they Cut
    D-Boys boast and brag 10 a key
    Add that six cent on a dollar
    Pay the IRS
    Greedy Uncle Sam
    Green eggs & Ham
    You Niggas still eating spam
    Bullshit emails received
    Just like dime dope sentences
    Bleach don't cover blemishes
    Damn my Brutha
    My King
    I know its fast cash
    That shit don't last
    Can't beat the system that beats you
    I know nothing is what it seems
    Everything ain't got to be Dope Boy Dreams
    Your worth so much more
    Get it together OR
    Your Business might = RICO


      The Jones

    How do you?
    Sit around,
    Thinking so small
    Focused on the mall
    What you can buy
    While, the AMERO is in
    Motion
    A cashless money system
    One further step
    In the domination
    I been telling you all along
    Make it your concern
    "out of control"
    Doesn't even title this destruction
    We have to fight the power
    Never know the hour
    I must steak my claim

    Leave my scent
    Like dog's piss on tree's
    Caterpillar's slither on leaves
    Cat's shedding on the couch
    So, let me shed some light

    Please join YOUR fight
    READ, then PLANT MORE SEEDS,
    Tell the next, send a brotha, or a sista
    A TEXT, post it on YOUTUBE, or MYSPACE
    BLACK PLANET, YOUR OWN POETRY
    See the variety

    Never know who you inspire
    Let's not be mistaken
    As ...
    Hardworking consumers
    Rocking ED HARLEY, RALPH LAUREN
    EDUCATED but still SLEEP
    STRONG but still WEAK
    READING with no COMPREHENSION
    VOTING, and still DYING!


      Bloodlines

    DISTINCTIVE FEATURES
    PIGMENTATION OF MY SKIN
    LEADS ME TO DESCRIBE
    THE FOLLOWING
    PRE-CONCEIVED NOTATIONS OF MY CREED
    COLORED
    NEGRO
    BLACK
    AFRO-AMERICAN
    AFRICAN AMERICAN
    WHICH IS THE PROPER ADDRESS
    NO HUMAN IS COLORED
    NEGRO IS A DERRIVITIVE OF THE WORD "NIGGER"
    BLACK REFERS TO A COLOR
    AFRO REFLECTS A HAIR STYLE
    AFRICAN COMES FROM AFRICA
    SO, WHO AM I?
    THE DECENDANT OF SLAVERY
    THE DECENDANT OF THE SLAVE MASTER'S LAST NAME
    THE DECENDANT OF NEIGHBORING INDIAN TRIBES
    SO, WHAT'S THE CLAIM
    NOW, THAT'S A SHAME
    TO BE SO STRIPPED
    YOU CAN'T FIND YOUR OWN ROOTS
    BLACK IS WHITE
    WHITE IS BLACK

    THEY DON'T TEACH YOU THAT
    DEEPER THAN THE COLOR OF SKIN
    THE WHOLE IDEA
    A DISADVANTAGE
    TO AMERICAN PEOPLE
    STEROTYPES PLACES ON
    PEOPLE, PLACES, & THINGS
    ALL MISUNDERSTOOD
    HEAVEN IS WHITE
    HELL IS BLACK
    THE WHITE MAN IS TRUSTED
    WHILE THE BLACK MAN IS BUSTED
    ON TRUMPED UP CHARGES

    WAIT A MINUTE!!!!
    WE AIN'T
    PAINTED, STAINED, DYED, OR VARNISHED
    MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA
    TEACHES
    LOVE, TRUTH, PEACE, FREEDOM, AND JUSTTICE
    TRUST THIS
    DESENDANTS OF STRIPPED LAST NAMES
    YOU ARE THE TURE BLOODLINE OF THE BEGINNING
    YOU ARE THE CREED THAT CREATED ALL CREEDS
    SO, THEY STOLE, RE-WROTE, THEN RE-VISED
    PERFECT DISQUISE
    NOW WE ALL CONFUSED, AND RELATED KIN
    TRUTH LIVES AROUND THE CORNER
    SEARCH TO FIND ...


      One Third Percent

    We jumped them
    Bumped stat's out the way
    Protocols of Zion
    Saved the day
    Sports & Entertainment
    Umbrella for the hood
    Chronology dates back
    So called—Freedmen of the south
    Breed for extensive task
    Running, hiding, marching, fasting for freedom
    Centuries marked 1mile ...
    Faith in "Jesus", elapsed time
    The sequel is now
    We deliver the WOW
    Social Mobility is mutable
    The Struggle crippled, but rippled
    The Domino Effect
    CEO'S, and MVP'S,
    Listen & watch
    On MP3'S, and DVD'S

    Still working hard to get In-House
    Do you recall him, the house—"Negro"
    This date in time, the "Hood Figure"
    Either way it goes
    Classification Code: Identity Crisis
    The many of that do succeed
    Get on the first thing smoking
    Out the hood, to a gated community
    Giving charity to overseas, when home is diseased
    Momz always said
    Charity starts @ Home
    Hurricane
    Katrina affected us all
    Turning on the news, seeing my reflection
    Receiving nothing but rejection
    Until Ophra
    Brought her own damn cameras
    Zooming in on the displaced refugees
    Oooh la la
    Remember the Fugees?
    How can it be, who could flee
    To a foreign country!
