"Brothers and Sisters, Friends, and I see some enemies." -Malcolm X Morally Depraved Preachers Morality we need, but one that sets us free. Illusions, won’t help us break oppressive chains. NO I WON’T take your pamphlet your proselytizing has consequences Off this planet? You want to get? I’ll oblige, I'll let me blow your mind. No excuses. You done enough. Precious planet. JUST LEAVE IT TO US! No saviors. Thinkers needed. You're incapable. SO JUST LEAVE IT TO US! Hymens busted? Misogynistic humans? Your books kill women. Stoned kids? Salted wives? Encourage questions! Give to Caesar? Kosher weenies? They're happy with our submission. No life after death. But if you wanna check, what the heck, GO WITH YOUR GOD It's a mess. We'll stay behind. We'll fix it up. JUST LEAVE IT TO US Without gods prosper together. Common, conscious future. LEAVE IT TO US Preaching fundies' flyers. Aren't helping our world grow. SOOOOOO, LEAVE IT TO US! 40 virgins. Milk and honey. Go with your God! Hypocrites, King of Kings is fucking waiting. You can’t be better world building preparing to leave here. Science, not myths. Solutions, not sins. Forward, Together, Struggling, CRITICALLY!

"And this frightened many power -- many interests in this country. Many people in this country who want to see us the minority and who don't want to see us taking too militant or too uncompromising a stand are absolutely against the successful regrouping or organizing of any faction in this country whose thought and whose thinking patterns is international, rather than national. " (he continues,) "Whose thought patterns, whose hopes and aspirations are worldly rather than just within the context of the United States border or the borderline of the United States." -Malcolm X -1963
