"Really You Think We Didn’t Know? Come on America Black Folks Aren’t Late For This On-Going Show

“You want to know what this was really all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or against the black race, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course, we did.”

John D. Ehrlichman

 

Reflecting Back Is America Ever Going To Be On Justice's Track 

 

 

Didn’t Gil inform us of this or was it a dream

 

Damn America why now do you scream

 

The forces of democracy have never been on our team

 

Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean

 

Of course, they were a part of a murderous scheme

 

Plying drugs to black folks that were the theme

 

You see the absence of justice was what Nixon deemed

 

If you read Yette’s Choice than you know evils voice

 

Now it's 2016 so its time to blow truth’s steam

 

Dammit America black folks bout to bust some seams

 

You think all those drugs flew in the jet stream

 

All Nixonites wanted was to be forever supreme

 

Keep all those freaking negroes out the mainstream

 

Paddling up life issues while headed constantly downstream

 

Those Nixonites only wanted black folks facing injustice’s extremes

 

Plying drugs to black folks was definitely the theme

 

Keeping it secret for so long well that was the scheme

 

If you think we didn’t know well you simply daydream

 

We never held any Nixonites in illustrious esteem

 

Hell most us took those drugs to release pent-up steam

 

You see back then the body bags came from the jungle

 

Due to our nation’s bureaucracy’s tendency to bungle

 

And in one big swell swoop came this drug class struggle 

 

Just because a fool in theWhite House  decided to smuggle

 

By placing drugs in those bags of cold bodies to snuggle

 

So don’t you dare come now with this talk of forgiveness

 

What did to us then was definitely quite vicious

 

Now this talk today only makes me more suspicious

 

These acts against us should make us seditious 

 

Or I guess you want us to be fictitious

 

Maybe that’s why so many of us aren’t ambitious

 

So Gil wrote then with his fountain pen

 

Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean

 

Were all apart of this murderous scheme

 

To steal Black America’s dream

 

Plying drugs to the black communities was the theme

 

Keeping as many negroes as possible out of the mainstream

 

Keeping them constantly paddling upstream

 

And out of the economic growth jet stream

 

Why is 2018 still like 1971 in our communities

 

Is it because we are still hooked on that scheme

 

That our government created to steal our beautiful black dreams

 

Now that is one devious ass scheme

 

You see they did more damage than killing our dreams

 

How many lives were lost in this murderous scheme

 

You decided to built jail cells and developed cartels

 

Kept most of Black America in a living hell

 

Why the hell didn’t we openly rebel

 

Once we got wind of this hate-filled intel

 

So as I conclude this piece

 

You think our black community will ever find peace

Or will our progress cake keep falling because of hate flavored yeast?
