ANOTHER BLACK SOLDIER HAS GONE HOME.
But as the wind blows, a bit of bad news is going to drift our way. Gil Scott Heron has gone home.
But you know what, since he's now officially part of American History, I believe the new required reading should be The Last Poets and Gil Scott Heron. Yes sir, I do declare, they should be right beside Huck Finn and that Mockingbird book.
Guns and drugs and violence are not the boogie man that's chasing down the black man, they are only a few of the sores that rises after the infection has set in. The media and their control of the dominate mindset, is the Big Bitch. Oh yeah, keep those with color in their pigment, blind, uneducated and conquered. My mother said, if a person controls your mind, he controls you.
In the Nixon era, The Last Poets were on the list of the Counter-Intelligence program, COINTELPRO. Did you catch that? I mean, counter to what? I mean, who's intelligence were they worried about? Dare I say the education of the black man?
So here we are on memorial day honoring our fallen, so I believe it's apropos to honor one of our front line heroes, Mr. Gil Scott Heron. You know, I believe it's wise to never forget our past and those that have gone before us.
So, the following is a post I did on Mr Heron (added with a few YouTube clips), titled, "Gil Scott heron is on parole for killing a freakin mockingbird"
Thank you Mr. Gil Scott Heron!
