Lowkey - Skit 1 Lyrics

What Malcolm X said when he got silenced by Elijah Mohammed was in fact true: America's chickens... are coming home to roost.
We took this country by terror, away from the Sioux, the Apache, the Arowak, the Comanche, the Arapahoe, the Navajo. Terrorism.
We took Africans from their country to build our way of ease and kept them enslaved and living in fear. Terrorism.
We bombed Granada and killed innocent civilians, babies, non-military personnel.
We bombed the black civilian community of Panama with stealth bombers and killed unarmed teenagers and toddlers, pregnant mothers, and hardworking fathers.
We bombed Qaddafi's home and killed his child.
Blessed are they who bash your children's head against a rock.
We bombed Iraq. We killed unarmed civilians trying to make a living.
We bombed a plant in Sudan to payback for the attack on our embassy, killed hundreds of hardworking people, mothers and fathers who left home to go that day not knowing that they would never get back home.
We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye.
Kids playing in the playground, mothers picking up children after school, civilians, not soldiers, people just trying to make it day by day.
We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and Black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards.
America's chickens are coming home to roost.
Violence begets violence.
Hatred begets hatred.
And terrorism begets terrorism.

    Tommy DeRossett

    surely in 2 years since you've posted this you realized you were in fact the one living in an imaginary world.

  7. SimonMajeski

    Damn. Goosebumps is a massive understatement. Man made this speech and got heavily criticised for making it. But real people know the truth may not be always what you want to hear. But it's the truth. And it hurts!

    Jeremiah Wright.

  15. MrDanielWalls

    It's Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Not sure about the Malcolm X thing, but one thing I do know is that he was Barack Obama's pastor.

  16. Mohammed H

    yeah goosebumps* is the correct term. its like shivered my spine- both mean the same thing but are different types of things, when your cold you get spots on your shoulders if its not covered which is goosebumps, respect to sweden !

  17. MrDanielWalls

  24. AzzzMonkey27

  25. beritboy123

    gave me the chills

  26. MrDanielWalls

    I know no one will believe me, cos I probably wouldn't believe me, but I sent Lowkey this on Twitter saying he should use it in a song or something and he replied "I will bro, thanks" and then it turned up on his album!!! Buzzing!!!!
    If you search "Amazing Speech on Terrorism" he's used the exact version I sent him, as it has the same music :)
