The black panthers had an incredible ability to take Gangsta’s off the street and turn them into revolutionaries. We don’t have that today. Many of the “conscious” movements today tend to shun the dudes in the streets. It’s rare you find a movement today that understands the role and how vital the Gangsta’s on the block are if we ever truly want to overcome our situation. To many conscious movements caught up with the small things like the usage of the N-word or pants saggin to realize the large picture.
