Police State

[Sample of Chairman Omali Yeshitela:] 
You have the emergence in human society of this thing that’s called 
The State. What is the State? The State is this organized bureaucracy. 
It is the police department. It is the Army the Navy. It is the prison 
System the courts and what have you. This is the State it is a repressive 
Organization. But the state and gee well you know you’ve got to have the 
Police because if there were no police, look at what you’d be doing to 
Yourselves — you’d be killing each other if there were no police! But the 
Reality is the police become necessary in human society only at that junction 
In human society where it is split between those who have and those who ain’t got. 

I throw a Molotov cocktail at the precinct 
You know how we think: 
Organize the hood under I Ching banners, 
Red, Black and Green instead of gang bandannas 
FBI spying on us through the radio antennas 
And them hidden cameras in the streetlight watching society 
With no respect for the people’s right to privacy 
I’ll take a slug for the cause like Huey P. 
While all you fake niggas try to copy Master P 
I want to be free to live 
Hey, (but?) they have what I need to live 
Bring the power back to the street where the people live 
I’m sick of working for crumbs and filling up the prisons 
Dying over money and relying on religion 
For help. We do for self like ants in a colony 
Organize the wealth into a socialist economy 
A way of life based off the common need 
And all my comrades are ready 
We just spreading the seed 

(Chorus:) 

The average Black male 
Live a third of his life in a jail cell 
Cause the world is controlled by the white male 
And the people don’ never get justice 
And the womben don’ never get respected 
And the problems don’ never get solved 
And the jobs don’ never pay enough 
So the rent always be late. 
Can you relate? 
We living in a police state 
No more bondage, no more political monsters 
No more secret space launchers 
Government departments started it in the projects 
Material objects, thousands up in the closets 
Could’ve been invested in a future for my comrades 
Battle contacts, primitive weapons out in combat 
Many never come back 
Pretty niggas be running with gats 
Rather get shot in they back than fire back 
We tired of that 
Corporations hiring Blacks, denying the facts 
Exploiting us all over the map 
That’s why I write the shit I write in my raps 
It’s documented, I’m in it 
Every day of the week I live in it, breathing it 
It’s more than just fucking believing it 
I’m holding in ones, rolling up my sleeves an’ shit 
It’s (Cee-lo?) for push-ups now 
Many headed for one conclusion 
Niggas ain’t ready for revolution 

(Chorus:) 

The average Black male 
Live a third of his life in a jail cell 
Cause the world is controlled by the white male 
And the people don’ never get justice 
And the womben don’ never get respected 
And the problems don’ never get solved 
And the jobs don’ never pay enough 
So the rent always be late. 
Can you relate? 
We living in a police state. 

[Sample of Chairman Omali Yeshitela:] 
(That’s right, that developed?) me: brought me here and worked me like an 
Animal. Built the political economy off my stolen labor. Made them rich. 
Made me poor. 

(Chorus:) 
The average Black male 
Live a third of his life in a jail cell 
Cause the world is controlled by the white male 
And the people don’ never get justice 
And the womben don’ never get respected 
And the problems don’ never get solved 
And the jobs don’ never pay enough 
So the rent always be late. 
Can you relate? 
We living in a police state 

[Sample of Chairman Omali Yeshitela:] 
Why is it that Black people and everybody like us live in the kind of 
Poverty and misery that we live in? Everywhere I look around me are nothing 
But poverty and misery, on the one hand. And yet, what I’m seeing is that 
Everywhere there’s wealth and riches in the world it’s in the white 
Community somewhere, whether it’s in europe or whether it’s right cross the 

Street from where I was born.
