Sonny Johnson: "When They (Leftist "Grassroots" Organizations) Shout For a Revolution, What Will Be Your Response?"

IMHO John Lennon said it best:

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know we all wanna change the world

You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know we all wanna change the world

But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know we'd all love to see the plan,

You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know we're all doing what we can

But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is, brother, you have to wait

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know we all wanna change your head

You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know you better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't gonna make it with anyone, anyhow

"...If you want the village to raise your child from pre-school to prison..."

I'm speechless!

I agree that John Lennon's song is eloquent.

I have been thinking about what Sonny says here. I'm not sure I understand what she is asking for.

Pastorius said...

I think she might just feel really exasperated by white conservatives for "not recognizing the power and danger" of groups like Black Lives Matter.

But without an answer there is not much to talk about.

What is the solution? I don't know.

If there are whole communities who see nothing better than to break shit, kill each other and dope themselves, I don't know what to do about that.

We've been trying for 60 years now, right?

I do think her questions are important.

Pastorius said...

From the 12 minute mark on she addresses Black America. It is powerful.

But before that she says, we can't just answer plantation, and then she goes on to insinuate "plantation" in different words.

It's still powerful. But I think she hasn't gotten her message quite right yet.

I love her, though. She is great. She kicks ass.

BLM = BOSLSHEVIK revolutionaries hiding under the shield of racism, just as racists hide under the shield of anti jihadism.
