Ef ekki núna, þegar? After We’ve Lost Another Brother?

Friends and family celebrate America’s Massacre 2016 In the Margins Top Nonfiction Book Award.

How many do we have to lose before we wake up and realize none of what is happening is life? We speak of togetherness, einingu, brotherhood, samstöðu. What is the meaning if we continue to ignore the actions which constitute each. There are not different degrees of keeping your brother. There is only one way – with everything you have.

The reason I decided to write this post is because I have been incarcerated for over a decade, and just recently I spoke to a friend who I had not heard from since I fell. Though I did not understand his absence, to know he had not forgotten about me brought a smile to my face, regardless to the time lapse. Í gær, I was informed he is no longer with us. His death unnatural. Now it is my turn to not forget. More importantly, it is my duty to him and others to speak out against this senselessness of his death and many others.

The black man is extinct. The number one killer of black men- fáfræði. Even if we fail to see the similarities in our facial features, bone structure, húðlitur, why is it so difficult for us to see that if nothing else, as black men we share in the same struggles? Is it not enough that for over 400 years we have been fighting for freedom, réttlæti, jafnrétti, peace, og sannleikurinn? Why must we fight against ourselves? Já, okkur! Blóð, Crip, Gangsta Disciple, Vice Lord, þú nafn það. At the core of each “entity” is growth and development. Nonetheless, the heart of man is at odds with growth, and community development is impossibly laborious if we continue to lose ourselves to the graveyard.

At a certain stage of my life my lack of knowledge with respect to humanity as a whole made me a prime candidate for the promotion of self destructive behavior. Þó, today my struggle, which is in essence our struggle, awoke me to the devil’s (not relating to a particular race, ethnicity, but Satan himself) most valued weapon- DIVISION. For even the Bible armed us with parables of Cain and Abel. Ef ekki núna, þegar? After we’ve lost another brother?

This isn’t about a gang, a neighborhood, or even a block. This is about MAN. From Baltimore to Ferguson, Ferguson to Chicago (allt 50 states included) whoever is not calling for peace has ALL of humanity’s blood on their hands, sjálfur innifalinn. Yesterday cannot be undone, but tomorrow can be different. The unnatural death of man does not just miraculously happen. Við erum að drepa okkur. The first step in putting an end to it is wanting something more, something better. Our resilient minds must push for an indestructible happiness. Your thoughts are your actions. What are you in pursuit of?

To all my brothers and sisters who, in my state of ignorance, I spoke with, advocated non-sense, promoted backward behaviors, glamorized or glorified a certain lifestyle other than something positive, from the bottom of my heart, I APOLOGIZE.

TO ALL MY FALLEN KOMRADES, I FARE YOU WELL !!!
