      "YOU WANT TO STOP BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE, YOU GOT TO START CHANGING THE
      CONDITIONS THAT BLACK PEOPLE LIVE IN THAT CAUSES THAT VIOLENCE" -ELDER FREEMAN

      THE BAY AREA COMMUNITY HAS DONE A BEAUTIFUL JOB TO RALLY AROUND COMRADE JABARI
      OF THE BRLP DURING HIS FAMILIES EMERGENCY MOVE TO A SAFER HOME. WE RALLIED MANY
      LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL ARTIST AND ORGANIZERS TO COME TOGETHER TO SUPPORT OUR
      COMRADE'S TIRELESS WORK. WE NEED THAT SAME ENERGY AND FIRE FROM NOT JUST THE
      BAY, LA AND CALIFORNIA BUT THE WORLD TO SUPPORT OUR COMRADE ELDER FREEMAN IN
      HIS FIGHT AGAINST CANCER! WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE NO MATTER WHAT RACE, IDEOLOGY
      OR BACKGROUND TO SUPPORT ELDER FREEMAN BUT THIS NOTE IS A CALL OUT TO THE BLACK
      COMMUNITY TO PICK UP THE TORCH AND OUR RESPONSIBILITIES TO OUR ELDERS!

      "A PRIEST, COMMUNITY ACTIVIST IN NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. HIS
      ORGANIZATIONAL MEMERSHIP INCLUDE: BLACK PANTHER PARTY FOR SELF DEFENSE, AFRICAN
      (ETHIOPIAN) ORTHODOX CHURCH, UNIVERSAL NEGRO IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION (UNIA),
      AFRICAN COMMUNITIES LEAGUE AND ALL OF US OR NONE (FORMERLY-INCARCERATED AND
      CONVICTED PEOPLE'S CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT)." --TURNING THE TIDE

      "Most elders have either given up on our youth or have begun to side with our
      white racist historical enemy against us, through consent, by helping to vote
      in racist laws or openly snitching to and calling pigs to hunt and shoot us
      down as if we are not even human beings deserving human rights and due process.
      It is as if the grey on their heads has made them catch a sick dose of
      brainwashing, or the clubs that busted open their heads during the unsuccessful
      civil; rights and Black power Movements gave them collective amnesia to the
      plight of our community: We must stop Black on Black violence with preventative
      education. The police don’t do anything but issue out savage justice with a
      bloodlust. They act as if they are the judge, jury and
      executioners!....................................................

      "The Afrikan philosophy that accorded so much respect to elders was based upon
      the assumption that all other things being equal, those who were living in the
      world and experiencing life before others were born should know more than
      others. This qualification is important because it was later applied in the
      election of chiefs and kings from amongst the elders. Being heir to the throne
      was simply not enough. One had to meet other qualifications or be passed over.
      Therefore, being older or the oldest in ones group did not command the usual
      respect if one was lazy, a troublemaker or a fool. Intelligence and wisdom were
      supposed to match ones age."

      - General Taco African Inter-Communalism II

      ELDER FREEMAN HAS BEEN A PILLAR OF WISDOM AND GUIDANCE TO THE BRLP AND THE
      BLACK COMMUNITY FOR MANY YEARS NOW. HE CONTINUES TO SUPPORT OUR GROWTH AND
      EVOLUTION AS FREEDOM FIGHTERS BY REFUSING TO COMMIT LIBERALISM AND CRITIQUING
      AND TEACHING US IN OUR TACTICS, METHODS AND EXECUTION OF SERVING THE PEOPLE. UN
      LIKE SOME "USE TA WAS A ROOSTA; ELDERS" (SARCASTIC QUOTES) HE DOES NOT SIMPLY
      WAG HIS FINGER AND TALK ABOUT WHAT THE BRLP AND YOUTH ORGANIZERS ARE NOT DOING.
      HE SEEKS US OUT SHOWS US THE KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM HE HAS GAINED FROM THE PAST
      SO THAT WE MIGHT BE MORE EFFECTIVE IN PICKING UP THE TORCH TODAY!

      "The training of the youth was everybody’s responsibility, especially the
      correction of bad behavior and activity. Child rearing was a serious communal
      duty: thus the Afrikan saying, “it takes a whole village to raise a child!”
      Afrikan youth had to be groomed to be men and women. Manhood and Womanhood was
      not a naturally occurring condition by age but must be carefully created by the
      experienced elders of the whole community! After this positive rearing of the
      youth was successfully accomplished, the youth had three obligatory duties to
      be carried out for their parents and elders: 1. They must procreate and have
      children to continue the bloodline for the community, 2. Support their parents
      and elders in every way possible once they reached an extremely old age (there
      was no sending elders or parents to convalescent homes!) 3. Remember their
      great contributions for all time by performing ancestral rituals to them after
      their
      deaths....................................................................

      "Black elders must understand that the youth must be sought out and rescued
      from Afrikan cultural neglect. A young brain, not yet equipped with the
      psychological tools to filter or disseminate information, accepts any and all
      information it is programmed with as the truth. There are no easy answers or
      quick solutions to tribalism. Misinformation can become deeply rooted in the
      psyche and will override true information from another source. Brainwashed
      Black people must be claimed, cleaned up, and returned to their proper state of
      Afrikan existence as a civilized people!"

      - General T.A.C.O., "African Inter-Communalism II"

      MANY OF US SPECIFICALLY AND ALL OF US IN GENERAL OWE A GREAT DEAL TO COMRADES
      LIKE ELDER FREEMAN WHO CONTINUE THE WORK AS THEY GET OLDER IN SPITE OF HIS LIFE
      THREATENING HEALTH CONDITION. IT IS MY PERSONAL BELIEF THAT A REFUSAL OR
      LACKADAISICAL EFFORT TO ACT (IN WHATEVER MEANS YOU ARE ABLE) IS NOT ONLY
      DISGRACEFUL TO THE PEOPLE BUT TREASON TO THE LIBERATION STRUGGLE.

      THIS IS A CALL OUT TO ALL BLACK ORGANIZERS (ESPECIALLY YOUTH) WHO CARE ABOUT
      THE LIBERATION OF AFRIKAN PEOPLE TO PUT OUR TIME AND ENERGY WHERE OUR MOUTH IS
      AND THEORY INTO PRACTICE! IT IS OUR POLITICAL AND SACRED RESPONSIBILITY TO HOLD
      UP AND SUPPORT OUR ELDERS WHO HAVE GIVEN SO MUCH FOR US TO BE HERE AND CARRY ON
      THE LEGACY OF RESISTANCE AND LIBERATION! IF WE DO NOT STAND WITH ELDER FREEMAN
      WE ARE PHONIES AND A DISHONOR TO THE THE CONTINENT OF AFRIKA. OUR ELDERS ARE
      TREES OF WISDOM THAT NEVER RUN OT OF FRUIT. WE MUST PROTECT AND RE NURTURE THE
      ROOTS THAT HELPED US GROW IN THE FIRST PLACE. IF YOU ARE PART OF AN
      ORGANIZATION, COLLECTIVE AND/OR AUTONOMOUS CELL CAPABLE OF WORKING TO GET
      RESOURCES FOR ELDER FREEMANS MEDICAL CONDITION YOU MUST SEIZE THE TIME! IF YOU
      ARE NOT BUT WOULD LIKE TO HELP ORGANIZE SUPPORT FOR ELDER FREEMAN YOU CAN
      CONTACT THE BLACK RIDERS LIBERATION PARTY, THE INTER-COMMUNAL SOLIDARITY
      COMMITTEE OR ANYONE WORKING WITH ELDER FREEMAN TO FIND HOW TO BEST SUPPORT IN
      HIS TIME OF NEED!

      THE ANCESTORS ARE WATCHING US AND THEY KNOW WHETHER OR NOT WE DID OUR BEST
      EFFORT TO APPRECIATE THE GIFT THEY HAVE GIVEN US (ELDERS).

      ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE! BLACK POWER TO BLACK PEOPLE!
