This land - Turtle Island - for over 15,000 years
was protected and preserved by Native Americans for generations to come.
Mother Earth was respected but more loved
And in loving Mother Earth
the Native American provided succor to those
that fled from the Slave Masters - those - that fled
Blacks once known better as Negros -
were sheltered and protected by Native Americans.
There use to be an understanding
between Blacks and the Native Americans.
Today that trust is dwindling - those that were saved -
those that were protected - bit the hand that fed them.
The Great Spirit sees it all.
It is not sufficient to say " I have Indian in me " -
what is it that you do to represent - speak truth to power?
It was not uncommon for posters such as the above
declaring the flagrant defiance - seeking revenge -
that to this day discriminate - seeing is believing -
some know of Nat Turner - of others too
that ran away from the slave masters - embraced
by the Native Americans
took advantage of their Freedom now have turned their back.
The Black Panthers had it right -
only for a few to sellout - much like we have
some Black sellouts in the Bayview Hunters Point -
preying on the community - doling out Community Benefits -
meant for our infants, our children, our youth,
our young adults, our seniors, those with
compromised health - more mentally and physically challenged.
Family comes first to the Native Americans -
through trials and tribulation - for over 500 years -
the women - more Elders - have kept it together -
passed the wisdom from generation to generation -
revealed the secrets to the those that keep them intact -
wisdom passed from generation to generation
that time is now.
This year, 2018 - divisiveness has reached a stage -
where people of color are discriminated against -
on another level mostly Blacks
fail to speak truth to power
now pander - have no conscience -
no soul - wicked, weak in the knees -
many Blacks take money and sell their souls.
We have such political whores and pimps -
right here in San Francisco.
There has been a deep awakening the few the brave -
have decided to shed light where there is darkness -
the cockroaches - hiding in dark places -
will flee and meet their end - by design
there is only so much harm that can be done -
the Great Spirit will see that this harm - comes to an end.
