    “Tell Me Again”

    Tell me again why we should forget
    I see that you haven’t forgotten Pearl Harbor yet
    Tell me again why you say you can’t
    You paid everyone else for their time in the camps

    Tell me again why we should ignore
    The many times you said “you’re mama’s a whore”
    Tell me again why because we fail to see
    The reasons you hung all our men from a tree

    Tell me again why our history you choked
    For chaining us, killing us, suppressing our vote
    Tell me again why we should share your terror
    Our enemy’s long been who you see in the mirror

    Tell me again why you wouldn’t relent
    From calling our ancestors niggers and wench
    Tell me again why so we’ll understand
    And please with a straight face if you think you can

    Tell me again why those little girls died
    For once tell the truth not another ‘white lie’
    Tell me again why now that you live in fear
    It’s about time you felt what we felt all those years

    Tell me again why because we’re not insane
    We know no one’s cornered the market on pain
    Tell me again why is it you find?
    When you cry your tears they are wet just like mine

    Tell me again why, we pray that you tell
    Why when we made your heaven you gave us pure hell
    Tell me again why what is your excuse
    Why you won’t compensate us for all your abuse

    Tell me again why because our ancestors need
    To hear that you’re sorry for your hate and greed
    Tell me again why, why should we forgive
    The ones who detest the mere fact that we live

    I’ll tell you why if I may be so bold
    We have to forgive you to save our own souls.

    From the gospel musical “Reaching For Freedom” by Jay Arrington

  5. "Just because you’re Black and you live in a Black community, which has been projected as a community of criminals. This is done. And once the public accepts this image also, it paves the way for a police-state type of activity in the Negro community. They can use any kind of brutal methods to suppress Blacks because "they’re criminals anyway." And what has given this image? The press again, by letting the power structure or the racist element in the power structure use them in that way."
