Ain’t no “card.”
If you’re Black and care about poor and working-class Black folks, then it’s worth you hearing that Black folks like DuBois, Randolph, Ella Baker, Fannie Lou Hamer, MLK, Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton, Fred Hampton, Afeni Shakur, and many others were anticapitalists.

If Rapper Huey somehow knew he would be dead by the age of 32 would he have lived his life differently? Nobody knows how much time we have left.

He lended his death to the lifestyle of the music genre, which is a false parallel. my point is if there has been 30 deaths in the same Kinloch neighborhood…and Huey is the only rapper. The common denominator is the neighborhood, not the occupation.
I’m actually hurt. Bout to Blast this song all weekend just for you Huey. 7th grade me is crying rn https://t.co/laVrY2RatZ
