I Want THIS on a T-Shirt...

-->
"Stop organizing rallies that isolate issues, and their solutions, into narrow, disjoint fragments, to marginalize dissent, distract the people, and delay the needed revolution against the singular cause of all societal problems: elite oppression of the people."

A Recurring Case of Blues



When I was in music lit class, back in the waybackwhen, a young white ass't prof began his lecture on the blues by describing it as a "contribution" of black America to music.
"It was Black people," he said, "who gave America the blues."
"Excuse me," interrupted my sax-playing pal, Mguma, "But wasn't it the other way around?"

Oh, yeah.
You dig?
