"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?
