Biko Pepared Us Well!
Ben Sasonof, a white boy born yesterday, like many others of his kind, read from the white script and spewed out the vitriol we are too familiar with.
Yesterday we celebrated the birth of a God, Bantu Biko who gave back to us what had been stolen through political miseducation, depoliticization and through religions fanaticism. He gave back to us, the most potent weapon in the hand of the oppressor, our mind.
He gave us our mind back so we can tell whites to go to hell and take their sympathy along with them.
He gave us our mind back so we can forge together as Blacks, and use our Blackness as a mobilizing tool against Black oppressors.
Biko prepared us to face the bigotry of the likes of Ben Sasonof and hold our head high in the face of a race war waged against us.
It is our duty now to teach the children of the oppressed, never to trust the children of the oppressor. The children of the oppressor will grow up and become their oppressor.
Negarizzed Blacks will be the first to tell you that you are corrupting the minds of innocent children.
Our retort is that it is unpardonable for anyone to bring a child into this world and render that child defenceless against white supremacy in the name of "let's get along".
Sympathetic whites must leave us Blacks the hell alone and go and be activists in their spaces of white privilege, around dinner tables and family braais, in boardrooms and in rugby stadiums.
It is not us who need to be moralised, but the white savages who mock us every waking hour.
The only moral ground to stand on is our returned stolen Land!
