    THE TRUE SIZE OF AFRICA

    Take a look at the standard world map, pictured above. As you can see, Russia is huge, Greenland is bigger than Africa, China is almost half the size, and Mexico is tiny.

     

    This standard map that we see all over the news and in our classrooms, books and more is called the Mercator Projection map and was invented in 1569 by a German called Gerhard Kremer. Kremer means merchant, which is Mercator in Latin.

     

    In actual FACT, China is almost four times larger than Greenland, measuring in at 3.7 million square miles. Mexico is actually 0.7 million square miles and Greenland is 0.8 million square miles.

     

    Russia, "clearly the biggest, as we all know", is actually 8.7 million square miles and Africa, would you believe, is 11.6 million square miles large.

     

    In 1974, UNESCO hired another German by the name of Dr. Arno Peters to redraw the world map with a more accurate scale. He did so, and this is known as the Peters Projection map, which is pictured bottom left.

     

    This map was released to the public in 1974, yet we do not see it in any classrooms, on any news channel, or anywhere else. If we do see it, we think "hold on - that's not right!"

     

    The point we're making here is that everything around us is controlled by the media and they'd even have you believe that Africa was the same size as Greenland - that's how biased our society really is.

     

    As you can see in the third picture, 7/8 of all the countries in the world can actually fit inside Africa, with the 51 states of America alone fitting neatly inside the Sahara desert.

     

    That means that there's enough land in Africa for every single person in the world to own a home with at least half an acre of land around it. Makes you think, doesn't it?

    "LARGEST CITY BUILT IN THE ANCIENT & MEDIEVAL WORLD" IN NIGERIA

    THE CITY/KINGDOM OF EREDO

    DATES BACK OVER 1000 YEARS

    (EST.800AD)

    - "DURING THE MIDDLE AGES, AFRICANS BUILT BY FAR THE LARGEST CITY THE WORLD HAD EVER SEEN. IN SIZE, IT DWARFED BAGHDAD, CAIRO & ROME. THE ACHIEVEMENT WAS ON A SCALE EVER BIGGER THAN THAT OF THE GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA IN EGYPT, AFRICA'S MOST CELEBRATED MONUMENT."
    - CONCEALED IN THE RAINFOREST BY "CENTURIES OF FOREST OVERGROWTH"
    - "COMPARABLE IN SIZE TO MODERN LONDON, IT WAS THE LARGEST CITY BUILT IN THE ANCIENT & MEDIEVAL WORLD."
    - "AT ONE TIME, SCHOLARS USED TO SPEAK OF THE NOK CULTURE, THE IGBO-UKWU CULTURE, THE YORUBA KINGDOMS & THE BENIN EMPIRE AS THE FOUR GREAT CULTURAL PERIODS MAKING UP THE THREE-THOUSANDS YEAR OLD HISTORY OF NIGERIA. SINCE 1994, TEAMS HAVE DISCOVERED AND MAPPED THE REMAINS OF YET ANOTHER NIGERIAN KINGDOM WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BELONGED TO THE YORUBAS."
    - A HUGE EARTHERN WALL WITH MOATED SECTIONS, ENCIRCLING AN ANCIENT KINGDOM OR CITY.
    - "FROM THE BASE OF THE DITCH TO THE SUMMIT OF THE RAMPART (DEFENSIVE WALL) MEASURED A TOWERING 70 FEET."
    - "THE RAMPART WAS 100 MILES LONG AND FORMED A ROUGH CIRCLE, ENCLOSING MORE THAN 400 SQUARE MILES."
    - "THE BUILDERS SHIFTED 3.5 MILLION CUBIC METRES OF EARTH TO BUILD JUST THE RAMPART ALONE."
    - "THIS IS, INCIDENTALLY, 1 MILLION CUBIC METRES MORE THAN THE AMOUNT OF ROCK & EARTH USED IN THE GREAT PYRAMID AT GIZA." (EGYPT)
    - "THEREFORE, EREDO'S CONSTRUCTION IS ESTIMATED TO HAVE INVOLVED ABOUT 1 MILLION MORE MAN HOURS THAN WERE NECESSARY TO BUILD THE GREAT PYRAMID."
    - "THE RAMPARTS MAY INDICATE THE BOUNDARY OF THE ORIGINAL IJEBU KINGDOM THAT WAS RULED BY A SPIRITUAL LEADER CALLED THE AWUJALE."
    - "AMONG THE DISCOVERIES, A THREE-STOREY RUIN HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED TENTATIVELY AS THE ROYAL PALACE. IT HAD LIVING QUARTERS, SHRINES AND COURTYARDS."
    - "IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THOUSANDS OF SMALLER BUILDINGS ARE STILL CONCEALED BY THE FORESTS & WILL BE MAPPED IN TIME."
    - "RADIOCARBON DATING HAS SO FAR ESTABLISHED THAT THE BUILDINGS & WALLS WERE MORE THAN ONE THOUSAND YEARS OLD. DATES SUCH AS 800AD HAVE BEEN SUGGESTED."
    - "PEOPLE WHO LIVE NEAR THE RUINED KINGDOM OR CITY TODAY HAVE TRADITIONS THAT A WEALTHY & CHILDLESS QUEEN, BILIKISU SUNGBO, BUILT THE CITY."
    - "SOME SAY THAT SHE BUILT THE CITY AS A RELIGIOUS OFFERING."
    - "IT IS ALSO CLAIMED THAT SUNGBO'S TERRITORY HAD A GOLD & IVORY TRADE.
    - "PORTUGUESE DOCUMENTS DATING BACK 500 YEARS ALLUDE TO THE POWER OF AN IJEBU KINGDOM THAT SOME SCHOLARS THINK IS POSSIBLY THIS VERY ONE."

    RIGHTEOUSNESS REPORT - JANUARY 12TH 2K17

    After having learnt about even more oppressed countries, ill-advised states and false leaders of late, it is clear that what this world needs is a revolution of peace and soldiers of truth and equality who, if they have to fight, will fight only for what's right; not oppression, murder, theft and merciless violence. Nuff troubles in the world and nuff love needed to heal it all. If only love could filter into the minds of the world's killers, there wouldn't be the need to overthrow them. Unfortunately though, it's a step-by-step cycle. First comes revelation, which is revealing, realising and opening your eyes to the problem. Then must come a revolution of love and positivity, followed by reparation, which is repairing the damage that's been done, whether it's been done by you or not. In case you weren't aware, we are one as humanity, meaning that you are responsible for your fellow human in every scenario, whether or not you've been involved in their killing or enslavement in the first place. Let love shine through and let us heal the world with positivity. Nuff troubles. Nuff love.

    FINLAND TO INCORPORATE NEW EDUCATION SYSTEM BY 2020

    Education around the world definitely needs an update, especially with an education system that's over 200 years old, having been incorporated all over the world through colonisation by the British and other European countries. Could this method, introduced in Finland, be the way forward? If so, how can we spread the so called "phenomenon?" And, more importantly, what other methods do you think could be used in order to improve our education system and actually give students something they want to learn about? Drop us a comment with your alternative ideas, or additions to this one. In the meantime, thanks for your involvement and bless up, as always!

    APPLICATION NOTICE TO THE PEOPLE AND GOVERNMENT OF JAMAICA

    BY BOSOMAFI ELLIS, AKA KOJO LION, OF THE AFRICAN HERO NETWORK PROJECT

    DECEMBER 10TH 2K16

    I Bosmafi Ellis, from Ananta, Basua, Ghana, West Coast of Africa, hereby declare that it is my intention to introduce to Jamaica by way of Commercial and Cultural Activities the traditional knowledge as relates to music, food, attire and all African ways of life to blend with retentions already present in Jamaica.

     

    Fully aware of the important links that Jamaica and Africa share and mindful of His Imperial Majesty's statement in the Jamaican Parliament on April 22, 1966 that "Jamaica and Africa have an important role to play in the maintenance of world peace", I would like to make the necessary connections so as to introduce African drumming, dance, and art & craft to Jamaica, as well as the sharing of indigenous knowledge where it relates to food preparation and agriculture, as well as waning arts such as basketry, pottery and tie and dye, batik and jewellery making.

     

    With Jamaica being recognised within the AU's 6th Region of trade and commerce I feel it is fitting that my proposal be given serious attention. The benefits to both our nations is incalculable.

     

    I look forward to hearing a positive response from your office at the earliest convenience, as to how to proceed in a practical way.

     

    I am...

     

    KOJO LION.

    CORONATION OF HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY HAILE SELASSIE I AND HER IMPERIAL MAJESTY EMPRESS MENEN I - ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA, NOVEMBER 2ND 1930

    On November 2nd 1930, 86 years ago, one of the most monumental events in both ancient and modern history took place in Ethiopia, as the 225th King of the Solomonic Dynasty, Ras Tafari, was crowned Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia. To many, this event fulfils numerous prophecies from the bible, as well as fulfilling Marcus Garvey's prophecy "Look to the East, where a black King will be crowned." One of the most monumental things about the coronation is that Ras Tafari's Queen, Menen Asfaw, was crowned Empress at the same time. Usually, when a King is crowned, the Queen will be crowned three days later. In this case, Haile Selassie wished to represent equality and balance, alpha and omega, so King and Queen were crowned same time. Haile Selassie was not given one crown, but a triple crown. He was given the name Lord of Lord, King of Kings, Conquering Lion Of The Tribe Of Judah, Elect of God, Light Of This World. Check out the National Geographic article below for a true feeling of CORONATION DAY:

     

    Report by Addison E. Southard, United States Minister to Ethiopia
    National Geographic, June 1931

     

    “As Sunday, November 2, dawned clear, all in Addis Ababa began to prepare for the impressive event of the morning. The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah and his Empress have just completed a night of prayer and devotion at the most high altar within. Through the early morning the chanting of praises continued, accompanied by the dancing of the priests with their great pulsating drums, the whole suggestive of the Ancient Jewish rites which were in use at the time of King David danced before the Ark of the Covenant.

    “Proceeded by waving incense burners, His Imperial Majesty, attired in white silk communion robes, entered the ceremonial hall with an escort of aides and clergy, and took his place upon the Throne. The thrilling but solemn silence gently breaks to the throaty voice of his holiness the Abuna Kyrillos:

     

    “Ye princes and ministers, ye nobles and chiefs of the army, ye soldiers and people of Ethiopia, and ye doctors and chiefs of the clergy, ye professors and priests, look ye upon our Emperor Haile Selassie the First, descended from the dynasty of Menelik the First, who was born of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, a dynasty perpetuated without interruption from the time of King Sehale to our times.”

     

    “Forty nine bishops and priests of this ancient Christian country, in groups of seven, have held place for seven days and nights in the seven corners of the National Cathedral to chant without ceasing nine Psalms of David. They are now joined by hundreds more. The established Coptic Church is revered and all-powerful in Ethiopia. This is a day when it may and does show its impressive might and splendor.

     

    “The Emperor, whose name is Anglicized as Power of the Holy Trinity, before the questioning of the Abuna gives his sacred pledge to uphold the Orthodox religion of the Church, to support and administer the laws of the country for the betterment of the people, to maintain the integrity of Ethiopia, and to found schools for developing the Spiritual and Material welfare of her subjects.

     

    “Chanting and prayers to the God of Gods rise from a multitude of priestly throats and reverberate from the lofty ceiling of the Cathedral. One by one with the solemn rites and blessings of the high Ethiopian clergy, He received the Gold-Embroidered Scarlet Robes, the Jeweled Sword, Imperial Gold Scepter, the Orb, the Diamond Encrusted Ring, and two Gold Filigree Lances in token of His position and responsibility. Following ancient customs, as when Samuel anointed David, and Zadok and Nathan anointed Solomon, so the Abuna anointed His Majesty’s head with oil. Seven differently scented ointments of ancient prescription are received on the Imperial head, brow, and shoulders. He then concluded with the words:

     

    “That God make this Crown a Crown of Glory. That, by the Grace and the blessing which we have given, you may have an Unshaken Faith and a Pure Heart, in order that you may inherit the Crown Eternal. So be it.”


    The centuries seemed to have slipped suddenly backwards into Biblical ritual.


    “The assembly applauded their greeting, and the visiting naval band played the National Anthem, while outside cannons roared a salute of 101 guns, and cheer after cheer came from thousands of subjects massed in the vicinity of the Cathedral.”

    MAANGAMIZI

    AKALA

    HOW MANY LIVES HAVE WE LOST TO THE MAANGAMIZI?

    IT'S WAY BIGGER THAN THE PAIN THAT I PLACE ON THIS CD

    IF I TOLD YOU ALL THE TRUTH WOULD YOU REALLY BELIEVE ME?

    IT'S THE MAANGAMIZI, IT'S THE MAANGAMIZI

     

    MAANGAMIZI, MEANING AFRICAN HELLACAUST

    BECAUSE WE PAID A HELL OF A COST

    AND DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT WAS LOST

    AND THE PROCESS AIN'T NEVER STOPPED

    SINCE BLACK CIVILISATION DROPPED

    THROUGH INTERNAL GREED AND EXTERNAL PLOT

    SAME ONES THAT TAUGHT THE ANCIENT GREEKS

    GREECE AND ROME HELPED BRING TO THEIR KNEES

     

    THEN FLOATING ON THE WAVES OF THE SEAS

    CAME A PLAGUE, A GENOCIDAL DISEASE

    WITH ARMS AND HEADS, THEY LOOKED LIKE MEN

    REALLY THEY WERE JUST DOGS ON TWO LEGS

    WHEN THEY FIRST CAME SOME OF OUR PEOPLE SAID "GO!"

    MOST WELCOMED THEM INTO OUR HOMES

    WE DIDN'T KNOW THEY HAD HEARTS OF STONE

    FROZEN BY WESTERN EUROPE'S COLD

    ALSO, THERE WERE SCUMBAGS AMONG US

    WILLING TO WORK FOR WHITE CONQUEROR'S HONOURS

    AND WITH THAT COLLABORATION

    BEGAN THE LARGEST FORCED MIGRATION IN THE HISTORY OF NATIONS

     

    EVEN THE CHILD OF THE MASTER'S RAPE

    COULD BE KILLED OR SOLD BECAUSE BLACK BLOOD IN HER VEINS

    BUT THE ANCESTORS FOUGHT BACK, GOT FREE

    PROBABLY HAVE NOT HEARD OF JEAN-JACQUE DESSALINES

    PROBABLY DON'T KNOW THE HAITIAN REVOLUTION

    CAUSED THE FRENCH TO SELL HALF OF AMERICA

    NOR KNOW THE ROLE THAT AFRICANS PLAYED

    IN THE CIVIL WAR FOR THAT SAME AMERICA

    IF YOU AIN'T HEARD OF NANNY OF THE MAROONS OR BOOGLE

    YOU PROBABLY BELIEVE WHAT THEY TOLD YOU

    BUT IF THEY SET AFRICANS FREE

    BECAUSE ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY GROW A CONSCIENCE

    TELL ME THIS

    WHY WERE THE SLAVE MASTERS GIVEN COMPENSATION

    AND THOSE THAT SUFFERED NOT GIVEN A THING?

    WHY DID THEY THEN INVADE AFRICA?

    AND MAKE AFRICANS SLAVES IN THEIR OWN HOME?

    WITH THE BELGIANS KILLING 10 MILLION SOULS

    IN THE CONGO ALONE

    WHY THEN JIM CROW?

    WHY APARTHEAD?

    WHY DID BLACK WALL STREET BURN THAT NIGHT?

    WHY COLLABORATORS WILL WORK FOR SUCH EVIL?

    WILLING TO BE TOOLS AGAINST THEIR OWN PEOPLE?

    WHY AFRICOM?

    IMPERIALISM FOR THE NEW AGE

    BUT WITH A BROWN FACE ON IT

    THAT'S RIGHT, IMPERIALISM FOR THE NEW AGE

    BUT WITH A BROWN FACE ON IT

     

    IF A KNIFE IS IN YOUR BACK 9 INCHES

    AND IT'S ONLY BEEN PULLED OUT SIX

    WHEN THE WOUND STARTS HEALING

    AND WE STOP BLEEDING AND BLEACHING

    CAN IT BEGIN TO FIX?

    WHEN THE PLAGUE OF SELF HATE

    IS NO LONGER A WEIGHT SO GREAT

    PUSH YOU TO KILL ONE ANOTHER

     

    WHEN THE INVADERS DON'T HAVE MILITARY BASES

    IN SO MANY PLACES

    WHEN THE JAIL CELLS ARE NOT PACKED WITH BLACK BACKS

    AND THE GATS AND THE CRACK ARE NO LONGER FACTORS

    WHEN WE CELEBRATE TRUE SELF-DETERMINATION

    NOT A FEW TOKEN BIT PART ACTORS

    WHEN THE TRUTH IS TOLD AND THERE IS

    THE DIGNITY TO REMEMBER THE DEAD

    BECAUSE AS LONG AS THEY ARE DISTORTING THE PAST

    IT MEANS THEY HAVE THE INTENTION OF DOING IT AGAIN

    JUSTICE

    ASWAD

    RAGING FYAH

    IN MY CORNER, I CREATE A SPACE

    TO LOVE MY BROTHERS AND LIVE WITH THEIR WAYS

    OH, SWEET SORROWS WHEN I TURN THE PAGE

    LIFE'S UNFOLDING MAKES ME SCARED

     

    IN THIS BODY WE ALL INVEST

    KNOWING THIS BODY WILL BE LAID TO REST

    "SWEET LORD JESUS" MY MAMA SAID

    WHEN SHE KNEELED DOWN AND SHE PRAYED

    I ASKED MAMA "WHAT IS FAITH?

    IS IT JUST BELIEVING IN A BETTER DAY?"

    SHE SAID "SON, DON'T BE STUCK IN YOUR WAYS

    JUST REMEMBER; DON'T BE A SLAVE TO YOUR GRAVE

    JUST REMEMBER; YOU GOTS TO BE BRAVE"

     

    I'VE BEEN THROUGH THE FIRE

    I'VE BEEN THROUGH THE RAIN

    I'VE GOT NO DESIRE TO GO BACK AGAIN

    THOUGH THE TIDE IS HARD

    I'VE GOT TO HOLD ON

    I'LL BREAK DOWN AND CRY

    I'VE GOT TO BE STRONG

    I ASKED MAMA "WHAT IS FAITH?

    IS IT BELIEVING IN A BETTER DAY?"

    SHE SAID "SON, DON'T BE STUCK IN YOUR WAYS

    JUST REMEMBER; DON'T BE A SLAVE TO YOUR GRAVE

    JUST REMEMBER; YOU GOTS TO BE BRAVE

    JUST REMEMBER; DON'T BE A SLAVE TO YOUR GRAVE

    JUST REMEMBER; YOU GOTS TO BE BRAVE

    WHO CAN YOU CALL?

    PROTOJE

    THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER; I SAID THAT WAS THE PRICE

    YOU SEE THE VALUE MAN WOULDA PUT PON THE BLOOD OF CHRIST

    FOR JOSEPH IT WAS TWENTY; THEY NEVER LIKED HIS COAT

    FOR BOB A COULD A MORE; THEY NEVER LIKED OF WHAT HE SPOKE

     

    IN SPITE OF ALL THESE NOTES, I SEE THE PATTERN DEM DEVELOPING

    MORALITY SECONDARY TO MONEY, GREED AND JEALOUSY

    THAT'S HOW MANY FELL YOU SEE, AND WITH THAT BEING SAID

    I WONDERED IF MY BROTHERS PUT A PRICE UPON MY HEAD

     

    I HEARD THAT MONEY MAKES FRIENDS AND MONEY MAKES FOES

    BUT MONEY; IT IS NOT ALL

    COS WHEN THE DOUGH ENDS AND ALL THE BANKS CLOSE

    TELL ME; WHO CAN YOU CALL?

     

    I'VE SEEN EMPIRES FALL AND WITHER DOWN TO DUST

    AND ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD; IT COULD NOT LIFT THEM UP

    MOST BRILLIANT OF ORNAMENTS CRUMBLE DOWN TO RUST

    BECAUSE WE PUT WE FAITH IN LUST AND DISREGARD THE TRUST

     

    HELL, I KNOW THE RUSH

    I'VE HAD THE FEELING TAKE ME OVER

    THE POWER IN MY HAND WHEN ALL THE BAND OVER MY SHOULDER

    THE BANDS OF MONEY COMING IN WILL CHANGE THE ONES AROUND YA

    BE WISE YOU KNOW BECAUSE IT CANNOT STOP YOU GETTING OLDER BUT STILL

    I ADMIT THAT I GET CAUGHT UP IN THE GAME

    SAW THE LEGENDS DO IT; NATURALLY I DID THE SAME

    SO I'M ROLLING ROUND THE CITY; MISS JAMAICA DEH DEH WITH ME

    HERB DEH PON ME PLATTER; KNOWING ALL OF THIS NO MATTER

     

    COS MONEY MAKES FRIENDS AND MONEY MAKES FOES

    BUT MONEY; IT IS NOT ALL

    COS WHEN THE DOUGH ENDS AND ALL THE BANKS CLOSE

    TELL ME; WHO CAN YOU CALL?

    AND DO YOU THINK THAT WITH THE LAST BREATH THAT YOU TAKE

    YOU'LL BE SITTING, THINKING BOUT THE MONEY THAT YOU MADE

    HOUSES THAT OWNED IN; CARS YOU DROVE; THE BILLS YOU PAID

    AND YET IT IS THE FOCUS; WHAT WE DO AND WHAT WE SAY

    WHAT WE GIVE WE ENERGY

     

    SO YOU SPEND YOUR LIFE AT WORK

    ACTING THE MONEY WILL BE WITH YOU IN THE EARTH

    LEAVING ALL YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO FIGHT AND SEARCH

    THAT'S WHEN YOU SEE THE SNAKES COME OUT AND ACT LIKE THEY DESERVE

    LIKE DEM PUT YOU PON RESERVE

     

    I TOLD YOU MONEY MAKES FRIENDS AND MONEY MAKES FOES

    BUT MONEY; IT IS NOT ALL.

    COS WHEN THE DOUGH ENDS AND ALL THE BANKS CLOSE

    TELL ME; WHO CAN YOU CALL?

    FREEDOM

    AKALA FEAT. SWISS & AMY TRUE

    I WANT FREEDOM

    I DON'T KNOW THE MEANING OR HOW TO ACHIEVE IT

    COS FREEDOM FOUNDED

    ON TAKING OTHERS' FREEDOM IS NOT FREEDOM

    BUT THAT'S THE KIND OF FREEDOM MAKE CRAZY AND MAKE APPEALING

    AND ALL OTHER KINDS OF FREEDOM IS CRAZY, DANGEROUS DEMONS

    SPRAY YOUR BRAINS ON THE CEILING; FOR ENTERTAINING THE MEANING

    IT'S POLITICAL, PHYSICAL, SPIRITUAL AND IT'S HEALING COS

    FREEDOM IS DIFFICULT; IT REQUIRES A CRITICAL

    MASS OF THE POPULATION NOT FOLLOWING ALL THE TYPICAL

    PROPOGANDA OF CRIMINALS; MEDIA SUBLIMINALS

    IN FACT IT AIN'T EVEN SUBTLE NO MORE; IT'S JUST PITIFUL; LITTERFUL

    MASS KILLERS DINING ON FINE DINNERS

    WHILE PREACHING TO US ABOUT FREEDOM LIKE WE ARE STUPID


    FREE YOUR MIND

    FREE YOUR GOALS

    FREE YOUR TIME

    FREE YOUR SOULS

    WE WANT OUR FREEDOM, YEAH!

    WE WANT OUR FREEDOM, YEAH!

     

    LISTEN, I WANT TO BE FREE LIKE THE NUMBER

    WHEN I FEEL LIKE TO WONDER; DON'T WANT TO FEEL LIKE I'M UNDER

    BUT OVER-SATURATED, MY IMAGINATION CAN WONDER; YOUR BOXES AND CATEGORIES IS SOMETHING I WON'T SUCCUMB TO

    COS I'M A FREEDOM HUNTER; A TRUTH TERRORIST; A LINE KILLER

    ME AND AKALA WRAP THIS PEN INSIDE FIVE FINGERS

    IT'S MUSICAL MEDICINE; DUDE WANT TO COLLIDE WITH US

    WE FIGHTING THE SPIRITUAL WAR; CAN I GET A THIRD-EYE WITNESS

    MORE FYAH; MORE POWER; THE WORST HOURS

    I COULD FREE MYSELF FROM ALL THESE COWARDS THAT I BEEN DOWN WITH

    THE BIGGEST ENEMY AIN'T A COWARD; THEY'RE MY SURROUNDINGS

    MY BIGGEST ENEMY IS THE ENEMY

    I'M ASTOUNDED; GOTTA

     

    FREE YOUR MIND

    FREE YOUR GOALS

    FREE YOUR TIME

    FREE YOUR SOULS

    WE WANT OUR FREEDOM, YEAH!

    WE WANT OUR FREEDOM, YEAH!


    IF KNOWLEDGE IS POWER THEN TELL ME PLEASE; WHAT IS FREEDOM?

    CAN YOU DEFINE A SINGLE WORD THAT HAS A MILLION MEANINGS

    AND IF YOU MEAN IT LIKE I MEAN IT, DO WE REALLY NEED IT

    IS DEFINITION ANOTHER PRISON THAT WE BELIEVE IN?

    CAN YOU BE FREE IN YOUR PRISON; SITTING IN YOUR CELL

    CAN YOU BE FREE OF THE SYSTEM WHILE YOU'RE LIVING IN HELL

    CAN YOU BE FREE IF THE VISION IS TOO DIFFICULT TO TELL

    COS WE GOIN' ROUND IN CIRCLES LIKE A DOG CHASING HIS TAIL

    TIME WILL TELL, IF WE'LL FAIL; IF WE LIVE TO TELL THE TALE

    IF WE'LL EVER BREAK THE SPELLS THAT THEY TELL IN THIS WORLD

    AND GET FREE

    FREE FROM THE PRESSURE; FREE FROM OPPRESSION

    FREE FROM THE LIES THAT THEY TELL US IN THE HISTORY LESSONS

    FREE!

    YOURS AND MY CHILDREN

    AKALA

    RIGHT HERE, DANGEROUS IDEA

    IF WE DID THIS, THEN WE COULDN'T FEEL FEAR

    IF THERE'S NO FEAR, THERE'S NO CONTROL

    IF THERE'S NO CONTROL, SOMEONE'S GOTTA LET GO

    THEY SAY I SHOULDN'T SAY TOO MUCH; THEY MIGHT DELETE ME

    REALISE I DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT TV

    KEEP YOUR AWARDS, YOUR APPLAUSE; I'M EASY

    ALL I CAN DO IN THIS LIFE IS JUST BE ME

    PILGER CAN SAY IT, SO CAN NAOMI KLEIN

    IT'S FREE SPEECH FOR THEM, THAT'S FINE

    YOUNG BLACK RAPPERS SHOULD UTTER THE SAME WORDS

    UTTERLY ABSURD, NUTTER, INSANE, NERD

    EVEN THE FACT I CALL MYSELF BLACK

    SOCIAL CONDITIONING AND THAT'S A FACT

    THE IDEA OF RACES HAS NO FACTUAL BASIS

    IT WAS MADE JUST TO SERVE RACISTS

    TO JUSTIFY DOING TO SOME WHAT COULDN'T BE DONE

    TO OTHERS, BUT THEY ALL ARE OUR SONS

    BLACK OR WHITE; ALL ARE OUR SONS

    MUSLIM, CHRISTIAN; ALL ARE OUR SONS

    LOOK UP IN THE SKY THAT'S ALL OF OUR SUN

    LAST TIME I CHECKED WE ONLY HAD ONE

    SO IF SOME WERE SUPERIOR, OTHERS INFERIOR BASED ON EXTERIOR

    WELL THEN SURELY THE SUN WOULD KNOW AND FALL INTO LINE?

    IT WOULD RAIN ON YOUR CROPS AND NOT MINE?

    AIR WOULD PREFER TO INHABIT YOUR LUNGS?

    FOOD WOULD PREFER THE TASTE OF YOUR TONGUE?

    IF THAT'S NOT THE CASE THEN NATURE HAS DECLARED

    DESPITE WHAT WE SAY, THE WORLD'S IN FACT FAIR?

     

    KIDS IN IRAQ

    KIDS IN BRAZIL

    PROBLEM IS, IT FEELS BETTER TO FEEL BETTER

    AND REAP WITHOUT SOWING

    WHATEVER IS GROWING

    NEVER EVER SLOWING, TURN DAYS TO DARK NIGHTS

    THEIR BACKS STILL BENT FROM THE WEIGHT OF OUR LIFE

    LOOK WHAT I SPENT AND GENTS IT'S HALF PRICE

    COS HE BENT OVER THE SEWING MACHINE HALF HIS LIFE

    DON'T MATTER THAT WE DON'T PULL IT

    IF WE DON'T CARE THAT'S OUR BREADS BUTTERED WITH THE BULLETS

    OUR CARS CHOKE ON BLOOD

    LIMBS IN OUR DIAMOND TIP RINGS GO ROTTEN

    THERE'S SOMETHING WE FORGOTTEN

    PILLARS OF THE TEMPLE MAY SEEM SEPARATE

    BUT THEY SUPPORT ONE ROOF

    IF YOU'RE REALLY CHECKING IT

    ALL OF OUR SLAUGHTERS

    ONLY OUR DAUGHTERS

    ONLY OUR SELF IN A WAR THAT WE FOUGHT WITH

    ALL CORRUPT LAWS IT'S, WE ARE THE CAUSES
    CAUSE WE CAN'T SEE THEY'RE ALL OF OUR DAUGHTERS

    KILL A COUPLE OF US; YOU'RE A DEVIL

    IF YOU KILL A COUPLE MILLION OF DEM

    GET STRIPES AND MEDALS

    GENERALS CONDUCT THE GREAT DEATH SYMPHONY

    PLAYED IN THE KEY OF HATE

    BY MUSICIANS WITH NO RHYTHM BUT OFFBEAT KILLING

    HEAR THE HARMONIES; THE SCREAMS OF YOUNG WOMEN
    THEY'RE NOT IMPORTANT

    THEY'RE JUST ORPHANS

    HOW CAN THAT BE IF THEY'RE ALL OF OUR DAUGHTERS?

    THEY'RE NOT IMPORTANT

    THEY'RE JUST ORPHANS

    HOW CAN THAT BE IF THEY'RE ALL OF OUR DAUGHTERS?

    IF WE DECIDED NOT TO BE DIVIDED

    SAW NO ONE THAT WE COULD SIDE WITH

    ALL THE GUN AND STUPID VIOLENCE

    ALL THE FUN OF STUPID TYRANTS

    THE BLOOD OF OUR DEFIANCE OF THE LAWS OF NATURAL SCIENCE

    WOULD HAVE SUBSIDED OR DIED A DEATH OR HAD NO HIDING LEFT

    INSTEAD IT PROVIDED THE HORSE TO RIDE ON TO THE RIDE OF DEATH

    WE'RE ENLIGHTENED BUT WE DON'T KNOW RIGHT FROM LEFT

    COS WE'RE SO FRIGHTENED
    IT'S LIKE WE'RE BLINDED TO THE SIGHT OF DEATH

    FOR ALL OUR WRITING ONLY WRITING ON THE DOORS OF DEATH

    WE'RE ONLY FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHT TO RESORT TO THEFT

    WE WOULD STEAL THE AIR IF WE COULD AS IF WE'RE SHORT OF BREATH

    ONLY IF WE'RE SURE THAT IT WOULD HAVE THE CAUSE AND EFFECT

    IF SOME PART OF US IS GOOD, TELL ME WHERE IT IS KEPT

    COS WE ARE SAYING NOTHING WHILE WE CRUSH THEM LIKE A FUCKING PEST

    IF YOU DISCUSS IT, EVERYBODY IS TURNING FUCKING DEAF

    LOOK DOWN AT YOUR KIDS... WHAT IF THEY WERE NEXT?
