A CHANGE is Gonna Come......Eventually

Pics jacked from Trent Benefield's MySpace page.

Police used their guns gratuitously, in an all-too-familiar scenario. Sean Bell was taken from us too soon. His two friends were injured. A call to arms was made. We shouted for justice. Slowly, Sean Bell's name faded from the front page. Slowly, life returned to the way it was.

Slowly, Sean Bell's friends recovered from their injuries. Slowly, Trent Benefield's wheelchair became crutches. His healing was more than the mere physical healing of bones and flesh. We all hoped that his physical healing would be a transcendant symbol for us: YES WE CAN. Yes we can fight. YES, a change is gonna come.

Slowly, Trent Benefield transformed from a victim into a baller. From a political activist, into the dude with latest gear. From being pushed by Al Sharpton, to pushing the latest whips. From being the victim, to fulfilling a stereotype. From being the recipient of sympathy, to being the wielder of Supremacy's whip. Supremacy works in many ways: it hurts the most when it's one of our own carrying the torch.

Hundred dollar bills CAN take us far.

Money, Money (The Root of ALL Evil) - Horace Andy

They'll buy you some fresh clothes. They'll buy you a ride. They'll buy you a temporary ticket from REALITY. They'll buy you a temporary feeling of elation. Unfortunately, they cannot buy back the LIFE of a fellow human being. A father. A friend. A brother.
