I’ve never seen a GIF of this.

I was just reading about this during a wiki binge on Olympics incidents and did a little research on it. I never knew how deep the message was that Smith and Carlos were trying to send. Just about everything they wore and how they wore it had symbolism attached to it. (unzipped tracksuits for solidarity with blue collar workers, necklace of beads for lynching victims, etc) Calling it a “black power salute” is really reductive and it’s a shame (and predictable) that if it’s taught at all, that’s what it’s boiled down to.
Another thing I didn’t know: the Australian guy who came in second wore a patch for solidarity with them, he was protesting racist Australian immigration policies. When he passed away, Smith and Carlos were pallbearers at his funeral.

WHAT’S TODAY’S MATHEMATIKS?KNOWLEDGE GOD.

Jay Z Ft. Beanie Sigel Scarface - This Cant Be Life -

ONE OF THE REALEST SONGS EVER.

[Scarface]

Yeah.. uhh..
Now as I walk into the studio, to do this with Jig’
I got a phone call from one of my nigs
Said my homeboy Reek, he just lost one of his kids
And when I heard that I just broke into tears
And see in the second hand; you don’t really know how this is
But when it hits that close to home you feel the pain at the crib
So I called mine, and saddened my wife with the bad news
Now we both depressed, countin our blessings cause Brad’s two
Prayin for young souls to laugh atlife through the stars
Lovin your kids just like you was ours
And I’m hurtin for you dog; but ain’t nobody pain is like yours
I just know that heaven’ll open these doors
And ain’t no bright side to losin lifel; but you can view it like this 
God’s got open hands homey, he in the midst.. of good company
Who loves all and hates not one
And one day you gon’ be wit your son
I could’ve rapped about my hard times on this song
But heaven knows I woulda been wrong
I wouldn’ta been right, it wouldn’ta been love 
It wouldn’ta been life, it wouldn’ta been us
This can’t be life

IN 2008,
I BACKPACKED THROUGHOUT SOUTH AMERICA

THIS SONG PLAYED
WHEN I WAS ON TOP OF MACCHU PICCHU.

MAN, LIFE IS GREAT.

Nas - Queens Get the Money 

Pregnant teens give birth to intelligent gangsters
Their daddy’s faceless
Play this, by your stomach
Let my words massage it and rub it
I’ll be his daddy if there’s nobody there to love it

All I Could Think Of Was Che’s Quote When I Saw This:
"If You Tremble With Indignation at Every Injustice Then You Are a Comrade of Mine."

Why did I think of this?
Cuz people go through some fucked up shit in life and it’s dope to see for once, shit go right for them.
