Marvin X on KPOO Radio, 89.5FM, interviewed by Terry Collins. Terry questioned him about the situation in GAZA or Occupied Palestine. During this two hour interview, Marvin talked about the liberation of Palestine and the liberation of North American Africans, whose situation is similar since we suffer colonialism as well.
Our situation is known as Domestic Colonialism since we suffer oppression in the belly of the beast. If we cut off the head of the beast, the whole world would be free. But unlike the people of GAZA who are conscious of their condition as the Zionists rain bombs, rockets and tank shells upon them, killing these mostly defenseless men, women and children, North American Africans are under attack but don't realize it; it is a low intensity war that is cunning and vile because the Monkey Mind Media has lulled them to sleep with fairy tales and nursery rhymes that perpetuate the world of make believe, so well described in the book Black Bourgeoisie by E. Franklin Frazier.
"At four years old, I became aware of the Palestinians. I used to see the news reel at the drive-in theatre with my parents and I vividly remember seeing the Palestinians fleeing across a bridge into Jordan. It was 1948. Since then the people of Palestine have struggled to liberate themselves from Zionist occupation. I am amazed to see the people who suffered the Nazi concentration camps, put the Arabs in similar camps. They may not put them in the gas chamber, but the Zionist weapons (Made in USA) are just as deadly. Baldwin told us, the murder of my child will not make your child safe."
Terry asked Marvin to read Claude McKay's classic poem If We Must Die:
