Blessed are those who struggle. Oppression is worse than the grave. Better to die a noble cause, than to live and die a slave.
The Last Poets “Blessed are Those Who Struggle”
Not that anyone should think about dying over Wall Street, or violent protest. This is a song about emancipation, about waking up to This. It is about taking a stand, and honoring those who took a stand before us, and said No to the status quo.
