To my black brothers and sisters

I hate to be the one to tell you, but nobody else will. The Man has taken the teeth out of your music and replaced them with plastic vampire fangs. Back in the sixties and seventies, black musicians had the courage to speak out about current issues. They played a big part in the cultural upheaval that included the civil rights movement and the peace movement.
Todays artists are too worried about losing their recording contracts to actually rock the boat. Instead, they give you safe government approved rebellion in the form of gangsta rap or empty hip-hop. If you want it loud they make sure it goes nowhere so you don't get ideas. I know you enjoy your music, and I'm not trying to criticise, but don't you feel something is missing?
Don't get me wrong, some of the present day artists are excellent musicians and superb lyricists, but they are not allowed to spread their wings. Ask yourself if you think they would ever play this song on MTV or that "edgy" radio station that you listen to.

Now thats a worthy successor to the likes of Gil Scott-Heron. Malcom X would like that song. Maybe you don't agree with the sentiment behind the song, but you have to give them credit for not being afraid to write it.
Don't feel too bad, they did the same thing to white music. Heavy metal has turned into a clown show and punk rock became emo-wimp rock. Its all part of the plan. They want us (me too) to spend all of our money on crappy pop music so that we can never get ahead. They want to throw us in jail if we dare to get a free preview on the internet. In reality they are afraid we won't buy the whole album once we find out there is only one good song on it. I'm telling you this for your own good, quit buying that crap. The next time you are sitting at a stop light and you want to scare some crackers with your sub-woofer, put on a political talk show. That will REALLY scare them.
