This postcard from hell should remind you of how lucky you are / simply assimilate or simply be destroyed / there's a little respect that you are disrespecting / no more martyrs cause there the brilliant die / they teach us what to think but do not teach us how to think / if Marcus Garvey dies then Marcus Garvey lives / have you ever heard of Marcus Garvey? / I can't believe no one ever told me / have you ever heard of Assata Shakur? / I can't believe no one ever told me.

    General CommentThis song is awesome. If anyone wonders who Marcus Garvey and Assata Shakur are, they were both leading figures of the black liberation/civil rights movement. Garvey founded the UNIA-ACL (Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League) and Shakur was a member of the Black Panther Party.

    General CommentShakur is also wanted for several murders in the New Jersey area, and currently has political asylum in Cuba.

    Yes, she is cosidered a domestic terrorist and has a $1 million reward for her capture.

    She's also the godmother of rapper Tupac Shakur.
