The things we create/do are not “magic”
They are from our intelligence.
Our physical strength.
Our mental endurance.
Our street smarts.
Our book smarts.
Our ability to thrive in fucked up circumstances. (not a reason to do it tho)
Our empathy for others.
Even our “weaknesses” are our strengths.
We are mentally and physically capable of doing great things.
Our shit is so good that everyone wants to steal it and call it their idea.
Steal our creations and ideas.
Our brilliance aint just in universities!
Our brilliance is in these streets!
Our brilliance is in foster homes.
Our brilliance is in minimum wage jobs.
Our brilliance is on assembly lines.
Our brilliance is selling you candy bars and telling you its for a basketball camp.
Our brilliance is in beat up cars, on bikes, and in old schools sitting on 24’s.
Our brilliance is in OUR MUSIC
Our brilliance is in the way she braids hair!
Our brilliance is in a homemade studio creating futuristic beats.
We are everywhere and we are brilliant and you cannot take our minds from us.
Meanwhile we will keep fighting to get back everything you took from us.

They only love you when you include them in your fight.
Capitalism is the social system which now exists in all countries of the world. Under this system, the means for producing and distributing goods (the land, factories, technology, transport system etc) are owned by a small minority of people. We refer to this group of people as the capitalist class. The majority of people must sell their ability to work in return for a wage or salary (who we refer to as the working class.)
The working class are paid to produce goods and services which are then sold for a profit. The profit is gained by the capitalist class because they can make more money selling what we have produced than we cost to buy on the labour market. In this sense, the working class are exploited by the capitalist class. The capitalists live off the profits they obtain from exploiting the working class whilst reinvesting some of their profits for the further accumulation of wealth.
This is what we mean when we say there are two classes in society. It is a claim based upon simple facts about the society we live in today. This class division is the essential feature of capitalism. It may be popular to talk (usually vaguely) about various other ‘classes’ existing such as the ‘middle class’, but it is the two classes defined here that are the key to understanding capitalism.
“Support Black Business!”
I support Black business in Black communities, employing Black people.
Black business that doesn’t destroy like it’s oppressor, but rebuilds.
Black business that is based in the community, for the betterment of the community.
Oh and t-shirts aint a necessity.
Emulating capitalism is not going to save us. They kill you when you’re rich. They kill you when your poor. Long as your skin is the right hue.
