I am the stone that the builder refused,
I am the visual,
The inspiration that made lady sing the blues,
I am the spark that makes idea bright,
The same spark that lights the dark,
So that you can know your left from your right,
I am the ballot in the box,
The bullet in the gun,
The inner glow that lets you know to call your brother son,
The story that just begun,
The promise of what’s to come,
And I’ll remain a soldier until the war is won.
(Lyrics by Asheru)
These words can be taken many ways and turned to suit the ends of the unjust and the power hungry.
But that is not how these words were writ, not how they were intended.
They are like the mantra of the truth-speakers and the brave souls still fighting for social justice in an age of mainstream racism on media entities like Fox News.
I will remain a soldier until this war is won. I want to make that clear. I am not backing down, nor going away.
They’ll have to kill me to get me to stop spreading the truth about the corruption in our government and our press.
