John Pavlovitz (Stuff That Needs To Be Said)

“I was here before you were born. Before America was something white people took from people they slaughtered. Before it was something built with the hands of other people they stole.

Before your flags and your anthems and before your nationalism ever had a nation, I was demanding the release of the slave and emancipation of the imprisoned and liberation of the oppressed and hope for the hopeless.”
