The Human Earthquake hit radio station KPOO last night, major damage reported

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:

If we can't live as men, at least we can die as men!--Brothers at Attica Prison, USA

They died as Men!
If We Must Die, Gaza style
The murder of my child will not make your child safe!--James Baldwin

If We Must Die

If we must die, let it not be like hogs
Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot,
While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs,
Making their mock at our accursèd lot.
If we must die, O let us nobly die,
So that our precious blood may not be shed
In vain; then even the monsters we defy
Shall be constrained to honor us though dead!
O kinsmen! we must meet the common foe!
Though far outnumbered let us show us brave,
And for their thousand blows deal one death-blow!
What though before us lies the open grave?
Like men we’ll face the murderous, cowardly pack,
Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!

Poem: Gaza Concentration CAMP by Marvin X

GAZA Concentration CAMP

There are those who say we must restore peace to GAZA
Peace in the concentration camp
Peace of genocide
Peace no protest allowed
Submit to starvation
stunted life hell on earth
No protest
peace before anything
Before justice
Before life even

Let the people of GAZA sing silent night
Holy night
All is peaceful
All is right
Under the shadow of death
Let there be peace
No justice
With boots on necks
Mass murder but peace
At all costs
Hamas Rockets to no avail
Iron Dome is our gift from USA
Iron Dome is saving our asses
From land, air, sea you attack
Mighty Mouse you are
Iron Dome Mouse
Look at you
Wild wild West beast
No thought of justice
Just peace
Peace be still.
--Marvin X
