“I felt then, as I feel now, that the politicians who took us to war should have been given the guns and told to settle their differences themselves, instead of organizing nothing better than legalized mass murder.”
- Harry Patch, last living American veteran of WWI
Patch was British, not American. Great man
“They say I’m so low key, I’m socially awkward, Only those that really know me are the ones that I talk with. They smile in the light, hate in the dark, You call it beef, to me it’s just a fuckin walk in the park
Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are.
“Robert Williams was just a couple of years ahead of his time, but he laid a good groundwork, and he will be given credit in history for the stand he took.” — Malcolm X

I do believe there will be a clash between East and West. I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice, and equality for everyone, and those that want to continue the systems of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don’t think it will be based upon the color of the skin, as Elijah Muhammad has taught it.
Malcolm X, 1965
