Yee Mighty Young Ones Rise Up

Malcolm X said: “I believe that there will be ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don't think it will be based on the color of the skin...”
Malcolm X anticipated a different future. He understood that change is bigger than faith, skin color and class. He challenged us to draw a new line in the sand. A line between those who fight for justice for all, and those who fight to maintain injustice. The old world is crumbling, the old lines are fading, and our young people are different. As Bob Dylan sang long ago..."The times are a changing" The struggle between being oppressed and the oppressors has always been real. White Nationalism is coming out of the shadows, but the future I see is at Black Lives Matter rallies where I see a hold lot of White and Black Hand holding, at our Women's Marches, and at those rallies against the band at our Airports. Change is riding a new wave, a young wave, and they are tearing down old walls every day.
Rise up young ones,
Jesse The Walking Man Turner
