"The Battle Must Be Joined!!!

No nation, no civilzation has come to the fore
Without new organization
Without thinking new thoughts
Without working
Without actually doing
Without being willing to take a chance
A willingness to risk all
Without a willingness to go against overwhelming odds
Without a determination to be the best, to be superior
Without a desire to determine its destiny and that of others
Without a willingness to fight, to shed blood, to risk defeat

The battle must be joined...

It must be fought
Be it a battle of mind, mind wars of spirit,
Of will, of bucks, of iron and steel, shell and bomb
Of tank and plane, of rockets and satellite star wars
Of technology, of information

The battle must be fought
The gauntlet thrown down
The chip knocked from the bully's shoulder
The lines stepped over
The clash and clang of sword
curses of men, moans of pain

The battle must be joined...

Fought in the street from door to door
In the schoolroom, in the board room
In the bedroom, in the war room
Hand to hand combat must commence
The battle must be ultimately won in the field

It matters not if you can eruditely delineate the subtleties
and nuances of racism, and racial discrimination
If you can delicately dissect with a master surgeon's skill
the anatomy of race and the body politic
If you can tease out the tiniest thread
If you can paint the most beautiful dreams on canvas
And write the greatest vision on parchment
Or ride in your time maching and visit ancient
Afrikan kingdoms, cities, and empires
Or feel the pain and degradation of slavery
Or celebrate all we have given to the world
Or point out with great exclamation the white devil

Still the challenge must be taken up
Fire must fight fire
Institutions, traditions, habits, hopes must be uprooted
razed and put to the torch
No stone left unturned
And institutions, traditions, habits, hopes must be
restored, rekindled or rebuilt anew
Bricks stacked in place
New songs must be sung
New voices must carry the tune
New feet must march to new drumbeats
New hands, new banners and standards raised

These songs must be your songs
The voices your voices, the feet your feet
The hands must be the ones at the ends of your arms
The soul unsold to the devil must be your soul

A new world must be created
Make it your world

Amandla!"

JUSTICE:
“Justice requires not only the ceasing and desisting of injustice but also requires either punishment or reparation for injuries and damages inflicted for prior wrongdoing. The essence of justice is the redistribution of gains earned through the perpetration of injustice. If restitution is not made and reparations not instituted to compensate for prior injustices, those injustices are in effect rewarded. And the benefits such rewards conferred on the perpetrators of injustice will continue to ‘draw interest,’ to be reinvested, and to be passed on to their children, who will use their inherited advantages to continue to exploit the children of the victims of the injustices of their ancestors. Consequently, injustice and inequality will be maintained across the generations as will their deleterious social, economic and political outcomes.” – From, “Blueprint For Black Power” By: Amos Wilson
