Black-revolution

Whilst we think about how gorgeous Transistor is, you can also vote for what we play in September! This month, the games to pick from are 1979 Revolution: Black Friday; Cibele; Pony Island; and Papers, Please.

For more information on the games, you can look at the suggestions page, and feel free to send me a message if you have another suggestion to add. To quote from my earliest call for suggestions: “these should be PC games since they’re the most widely available, and low impact enough to run on non-gaming PCs. Most of these will also be much smaller games than vast, 100+ hour open world types too, which helps with the time commitment thing, and are likely to be cheaper too.”

Angela Davis and Assata Shakur’s Lawyer  Discuss the New Threat against Assata Shakur

They claim that i’m violent
Just cuz I refuse to be silent
These hipocrites are havin’ fits
Cuz i’m not buying it, defying it
Envious, because I will rebel against
Any oppressor, and this is known as self defense
I show no mercy, they claim that I’m tha Lunatic
But when tha shit gets thick, I’m tha one you go and get
Don’t look confused, tha truth is so plain ta see
Cause I’m tha nigga that you sell-outs are ashamed to be
And every jeep and and every car, while they stop us
I’m never ignorant, getten goals accomplished
Tha underground railroad on an uprise
This time tha truth is getten told
Heard enough lies
I told'em fight back, attack on society
If this is violence then violent’s what I gotta be
If you investigate you’ll find out where it’s coming from
Look through our history, Americas tha violent one
Unlock my brain, break tha chains of your misery
This time tha pay back for evil shit you did too me
They call me militant and racist cause I will resist
You wanna censor something
Mothafucka censor this!
My words are weapons, and i’m stepin to tha sirens
Wakin up tha masses
But you, claim that i’m violent

- Tupac Amaru Shakur

Written by ex-Black Panther turned anarchist Lorenzo Komboa Ervin, Anarchism and the Black Revolution is both an easy-to-read introduction to the fundamental principles of class struggle anarchism and an analysis of their relevance to the black liberation movement. Also contains a good section on why the author is an anarchist and why non-class struggle anarchists are useless.

August 7, 1970, just a few days after George Jackson was transferred to San Quentin, the case was catapulted to the forefront of national news when his brother, Jonathan, a seventeen-year-old high school student in Pasadena, staged a raid on the Marin County courthouse with a sack full of handguns, an assault rifle, and a shotgun hidden under his coat. Educated into a political revolutionary by George, Jonathan invaded the court during a hearing for three black San Quentin inmates, not including his brother, and handed them weapons. As he left with the inmates and five hostages, including the judge, Jonathan demanded that the Soledad Brothers be released within thirty minutes. In the shootout that ensued, Jonathan was gunned down. Of Jonathan, George wrote, “He was free for a while. I guess that’s more than most of us can expect.”

Tupac Shakur - Words of wisdom (Poet revolutionary)

Killing us one by one
In one way or another
America will find a way to eliminate the problem
One by one
The problem is
The troubles in the black youth of the ghettos
And one by one
We are being wiped off the face of this earth
At an extremely alarming rate
And even more alarming is the fact
That we are not fighting back
Brothers, sisters, niggas
When I say niggas it is not the nigga we are grown to fear
It is not the nigga we say as if it has no meaning
But to me
It means Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished, nigga
Niggas what are we going to do?
Walk blind into a line? Or fight?
Fight and die if we must like niggas

This is for the masses, the lower classes
The ones you left out, jobs were givin’, better livin’
But we were kept out
Made to feel inferior, but we’re superior
Break the chains in our brains that made us fear yah
Pledge allegiance to a flag that neglects us
Honour a man that who refuses to respect us
Emancipation, proclamation, Please!
Lincoln just said that to save the nation
These are lies that we all accepted
Say no to drugs but the government’s kept it
Running through our community, killing the unity
The war on drugs is a war on you and me
And yet they say this is the Home of The Free
But if you ask me it’s all about hypocrisy
The constitution, Yo, it don’t apply to me
And Lady Liberty still the bitch lied to me
Steady strong nobody’s gonna like what I pumpin’
But it’s wrong to keeping someone from learning something
So get up, it’s time to start nation building
I’m fed up, we gotta start teaching children
That they can be all that they want to be
There’s much more to life than just poverty

This is definitely ahhh words of wisdom
AMERIKA, AMERIKA, AMERIKKKA
I charge you with the crime of rape, murder, and assault
For suppressing and punishing my people
I charge you with robbery for robbing me of my history
I charge you with false imprisonment for keeping me
Trapped in the projects
And the jury finds you guilty on all accounts
And you are to serve the consequences of your evil schemes
Prosecutor do you have any more evidence?

Words of Wisdom
They shine upon the strength of a nation
Conquer the enemy on with education
Protect yourself, reach for what you wanna do
Know thy self, teach what we been through
On with the knowledge of the place, then
No one will ever oppress this race again
No Malcolm X in my history text
Why is that?
‘Cause he tried to educate and liberate all blacks
Why is Martin Luther King in my book each week?
He told blacks, if they get smacked, turn the other cheek
I don’t get it, so many questions went through my mind
I get sweated, They act as if asking questions is a crime
But forget it, one day I’m gonna prove them wrong
Now every brother had to smother on the welfare line
The American dream, though it like it’s attainable
They’re pulling your sleeve, don’t believe
‘Cause it will strangle yah
Pulling the life of your brain, I can’t explain
Beg as you can obtain from which you came
Swear that your mother is living in equality
Forgetting your brother that’s living her apology
Thought they had us beaten when they took out King
But the battle ain’t over till the black man sings
Words of Wisdom
But the battle ain’t over till the black man sings
Words of Wisdom

NIGHTMARE that’s what I am
America’s nightmare
I am what you made me
The hate and evil that you gave me
I shine of a reminder of what you have done to my people
For Four hundred plus years
You should be scared
You should be running
You should be trying to silence me
Ha ha
But you cannot escape fate
Well it is my turn to come
Just as you rose you shall fall
By my hands
Amerika, You reap what you sow
2pacalypse America’s Nightmare
Ice Cube and Da Lench Mob America’s Nightmare
Above the Law America’s Nightmare
Paris America’s Nightmare
Public Enemy America’s Nightmare
Krs-One America’s Nightmare
Mutulu Shakur America’s Nightmare
Geronimo Pratt America’s Nightmare
Assada Shakur America’s Nightmare"
