Lest We FORGET


Mutabaruka - De System
Mutabaruka - Witeman Country
Mutabaruka - Naw Give Up
UPDATE: Jay-Z's Minority Report video, via Eskay @ Nah Right.

With all this talk of women and minorities running for president, PROGRESS seems to be the word of the month. "America is different now." "Look how far WE'VE come." "Everyone and anyone has a chance."

Biochemical Slang's opinion on American progress: Not so much.

The above portrait was painted in 1789. The picture below was taken in 2007. According to my calculations, white men still run this rap ish. According to my calculations, American progress is defined as token women and minorities. Since 1789, fashion has changed, electricity has become commonplace, indoor plumbing is easier to come by, the dollar has inflated, and we live a bit longer.

Lest we forget, white people still run this rap ish.
