Providence The Poet

19 Jul Providence The Poet

Tune In

 

Note: This piece was read live by Providence The Poet at a protest in support of Black Lives Matter in Montreal on July 15th, 2016.

 

There’s a reason Black People, melinated people are being lynched, mentally scarred, thrown into states of emotional distress. There’s a lot Moor to this then what is being revealed.

Racism is a lot more than you may think it is, if your opinions are based on media reports and social media outbursts.

THEY DON’T HATE US. THEY’RE TERRIFIED OF US.

As a melinated individual you have a power inside of you that the oppressor is very aware of.

The oppressor is trying to keep you away from that. Away from yourself.

Your mind can’t function on a certain vibration in states of high distress. Your mind can’t function on a certain vibration when you are emotionally drained!

They want you to be fixated on fearing the oppressor, hating the oppressor, instead of transmuting that beautiful angry energy onto loving ourselves.

This includes taking the time to get to know who you are, who you’ve been. Everything they project upon you about who you are is a lie.

We are not the descendants of slaves.

THAT IS NOT OUR HISTORY!

WE ARE THE DESCENDANTS OF KINGS.

THIS IS YOUR KINGDOM. OUR KINGDOM.

THESE ARE OUR LAWS BEING BROKEN BY OUR POLICY ENFORCERS.

THEY’RE TERRIFIED OF US!

Not you as an individual, not myself as an individual, THEY ARE TERRIFIED OF US!

QUOTING the beautiful soul that is Ralph Waters: The secret lies in the building of a new system! 

IF WE DO NOT COME TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY, IF WE DO NOT COME TOGETHER AS A FAMILY, THEN ALL OF OUR SOLDIERS ARE DYING FOR NOTHING!

REMEMBER THEY DO NOT HATE PEOPLE OF COLOR. THE OPPRESSOR IS TERRIFIED OF PEOPLE OF COLOR.

ITS TIME TO REMEMBER WHO WE ARE!

WE ARE ONE!

WE ARE ONE!

WE ARE ONE!
