I've been listening to a lot of the work from the group The Last Poets recently and thought I'd share one of their pieces called "Opposites" from their 1971 album "This is Madness."
"Understand," said the old Black man,
"That everything works in opposites."
"Understand that Black is true and false is white.
Understand that Black is right and white is wrong.
Understand the white is weak and Black is strong.
Understand that white is suffocation and Black is a deep breath.
Understand the Blackness is reality and whiteness but a game.
Understand that whitey steals your future and lies about your past.
You understand what it means to be a free Black man!"
