Spring and Summer is to Come: A Prisoner’s Thoughts on Liberation

To my psychological and spiritual soldiers of confinement: 
God is the supreme mind distributed throughout all parts of the universe – the cause of all things, the intelligence of all things, and The power within all things. The motion of God is circular, the body of God is composed the substance of light, the nature of God is composed of the substance of truth! (Facts) Man and the universe were made in the image of God; both being made in the same image. The overstanding of one predicates the knowledge of the other. It would be wise for us to reach out to as many family and friends within society and enlighten them of the instruction to not vote Donald Chump in our next election. It’s like the nature; we are amongst the cold winter season; but all in due time spring and summer is to come only if we can prove to be of God image in the Mind and Spirit as well as the flesh also. My brothers of the 2017 articles from January to now in the Insight. I would like to give you all a shout out for that light and positive motivational force of energy, especially here at Valdosta State Prison and all the other movements thats standing against the oppressors. My love goes to each and every soul. We are living to die for the betterment of our world and its future of generations to come. 
One other thing before I leave; Rosco if we come together and do away with the bull shit, we are the young hearts of the streets that can make a big different. We have to get a new ordley’s also so we can communicate with our brothers in J-building. Shout out Jarvis – Kevin – Paul – Gutta – Trigger 1000 – Nard Ru – Ratchett – Renny – K.G. – Rock – the Islam Community – 5% my brothers and sisters in other prisons and plenty more. Valdosta State Prison is soldiered up for the struggle – all you have to say is Go! And with that I leave you all with strength – love – loyalty – respect – honor and peace. The real Trouble G 

 

Black Tape of the Mournful

Black Tape of the Mournful (from 2016)
by King Coe
The elevation of the degrading verbal and physical abuse that we receive on a daily basis is becoming too much, almost unbearable…individuals will only stand for so much whether it be singlehandedly or as a whole.  The “tipping point” is approaching sooner than the rulership thinks.  I wonder myself: will I be the sacrificial lamp for the oppressed people?
I’ve examined my life and it may be worth the pain, agony, and death.  But it may not?  Who knows?  That’s the question I ask myself daily…is it worth dying for?  The respect, pride, honor, what about suffering of my forefathers?  Was it all in vain?
I know that I cannot continue to take this subjugation and not respond with brute force.  I watch everyday as the correctional officers harass and abuse my fellow brothers, mostly black men, but there are some white and even latinos too.  I avoid any interference as best I can, but I begin to feel like a slave who is afraid to look “massah” in his eyes, fore a whipping may occur…slavery was abolished over 120 years ago.  Segregation, 50!  Raised through the crack epidemic.  I survived that.  I fought for my survival daily in those mean streets, so why will I bow now?  Take my life if you will, but my mothers, sisters, brothers, son, grands and greats will know that I did no kneel to these oppressors of derogatory, degrading, corrupt entities.
Fuck the “establishment”, because they will not be satisfied until they wear “the black tape” over their badges to mourn the death of their own.

 

Changing Times

Changing Times
Melvin Jackson, Jackson
This is my 35th year of incarceration.  The inmates are using the same old rhetoric, “the white man this” or “the white man that”.  I’m located a Georgia’s Diagnostic & Classification Prison in high max.  Tier III total lockdown in Jackson, Georgia.  No white man is denying me my rights!  Not many hired in this area any more.  When even I can see outside of my cell or go to medical, I see an ocean of black executive and jr executive administrator faces.  The entire executive and jr executive staff is all black.
We have black apartheid – purposeful black segregation.  I guess all that marching and protesting in the 60’s and 70’s worked!  The white folks gave us what we requested.  He gave us more: A black president, black mayors, senators, etc.  Inmates rioted in prison begging for black staff.  Here at GDCP 25 minutes from the central office in Forsyth we now have black wardens executing us!  Where is the NAACP?  Tier III superintendent M. cannon, Deputy Warden Security W. Powell, Population Counselors K. Forts and J. Goody, Chief Counselor, Dep Warden Care & Treatment, Captain, Grievance Coordinator, all African Americans – blacks – negroes, etc.  Yet I’m being denied access to the grievance system which violates my access to the courts.  My cell is boycotted by these staffers – no grievance in dorm violating IIB05-0001 of state policies.  Where are the GDOC investigators?  Oh, did I not tell you, they’re also black.  Black security guards now do the assaulting, the lying.  Where is the white man when the few black judges dismiss your case on a whim.
Black mental health workers monitor and document your endurance to discover new methods of control and brainwashing.  Inmates given cell restrictions 6 months or over a year.  Which means no yard or outside of cell activities.  Although this violates international law of the Geneva Convention code for prisoners – and the US Constitution.  Because the staff is black and brown, they are able to get away with it.  The black administrators deny us access to regular library and is creating more illegal customs to make it harder for us to access novels.  There is a “no passing” staff rule so those without funds either go crazy or figure out a way not to.  As long as the negro warden continues to execute (kill) inmates and the NAACP ACLU and others find it’s no longer newsworthy, these blacks will continue to abuse us without investigations.  Inmate executions are only newsworthy if it is done by a white warden.  The Georgia prison system, especially most medium security systems, has become your Haiti, or your Uganda.  The black administrators are our Papa Docs, Baby Doc, and Idi Amins.  Why is it we very seldom hear about prisons in Montana, Idaho, these mostly white states?  All I read or hear in these protesting news alerts is “Trump this! Trump that!” Has everyone forgotten history?  It was the Clintons that granted billions of dollars nationwide to build prisons in the 90’s.  It was also the Clintons that changed US 1983 rules for inmates filing lawsuits in federal courts.  It is almost impossible to file assault, mental cruelty and then your awards are minial.  Thank you Bill and Hillary!  Abraham Lincoln was an admitted racist and it was he that freed us.
Thomas Jefferson loved you, really wanted you free :) but he kept his slaves until he died, raped Sally Hemmings because as a slave she could not say “no massa!”.  Let the inmates re-examine who their oppressors are.  History tells us different. Many Afrikan tribes sold and gathered other blacks to be sold into slavery.  Also white people do not appreciate taking instructions from many of these unprofessional blacks – and we find white flight.  The GDOC is overwhelmed with blacks.  Hayes and Valdosta may be a little different – would someone inform me how to get these helpless ex-slaves investigated, for they are killing me.

Don’t be Deceived

by Stanley Malone, Wilcox SP

Don’t be deceived by the stripes on the clothing of the confined: those who live away from society, who live and die within the dreary walls of prison, who are enclosed by the fences of a world of which some cannot conceive.
Don’t be deceived into believing that in prison dwell only the worst of unmanly men, suffering the torments of their past, built on resentments or insecurities.  Prison is a world where many souls are crushed, yet many are strengthened by the power of God, they become the best of men.
The isolated cells standing side by side, with nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.  Inside this prison of hate and bitterness is where you distinguish the men of stripes.  Many are weakened, yet, for many the mind is strengthened.
For the thousands that refuse to accept and change their wrongs and weaknesses, the thousands who blame others of this world for their misgivings and mature only through body:
There are still thousands that change and stand, strong and proud they do stand. And you may be startled by their humbleness, their understanding and their soundness of mind and spirit…
Remember if you will, that the greatest leaders of mankind (wearing such names as Martin, Malcolm, Mandela and Mohomad) through mighty acts of revelations and agape expectations, which kindled the most compounding and astounding movements throughout history, all have ascended from the prison pit.
And just as many whom themselves could have been great, sadly too many have perished within without awakening to the real purpose of which they are born.  And that would be to rediscover and to share the most valuable and precious gift in which the creator himself specifically gave, and that is the mind.
Don’t be deceived!

AMMUNITION

Shawty sit down and listen to me cuz I’m raw and uncut which make me the truth. Then again when you look into my eyes I am the future for the young black youth, also I have dreams for bigger and better things like Dr King.

Speaking the X of Malcolm trying not to be dirty like a falcon, to my  niggas in prison doing dead time. You gotta get up strength and elevate your mind, cuz life is not about money, sex and crimes even know we committed a crime God forgive us and hope we find the right state of mind.

Soldiers and thugs may run around beefing, killing each other for what reason and why? Slanging crack in the hood in the stormy weather, but turn around and say the white man is stealing our land raping our ladies and killing our babies. Which is true but if you turn around and FACE REALITY we gave them the power to do what they do. So go read and seek for the truth and find the belief that’s real for you, words from Westside the wild kid of the streets to speaking JEWELS for the young black youth the TRUTH.

The Black Abomination: writings from Valdosta Prison

written by a young Black anarchist: JaCorie Hinton

The Black Abomination

I the Black Race am my own enemy, for years I have brought corruption and destruction amongst my own people. Killing, stabbing, beating and abusing my own kind with the same structural image as my self Black hair, brown eyes, chocolate or caramel colored skin. Installing this illiterate and destructive behavior in our kids making this a continuous cycle embedded in my Black society like a genetic disorder. Causing the prisons to overflow with the majority of my Black people and the streets to be a place unsafe to the Black community and a war zone to the Black uneducated beings lost to jealousy, lust, envy, and greed. Making it easy to be recruited for the growing prison systems steady flow of my Black bretheren who then become lost in the White Man’s system. We are the Black Abomination a plague, sickness, a disease to our own race. We are our very own geneside and manufacturer of our own Extinction. And until we can overcome these manipulative and destructive living conditions we will always be the minority of the human existence. We are hated as a whole by Amerika and in the rest of the world, and looked upon as the Black Abomination we are are own enemy but I am still proud to say I am Black. Teach and protect our race so one day our race will live on Black Lives Matter

Real life: Poetry behind bars

Real life
At times in my cell I often wanna raise hell, but it’s the life I live have my heart shedding silent tears.
So many years in here so many dreams in the wind I count my blessings in life everyday is a fight.
These craKKKers got us in prisons institutionalize in their system. Ancestors fought for our freedom now we killing and drug dealing.
They steady making prisons just a modern day slavery one world order don’t even know what we’re facing.
It’s time to wake up and start fulfilling our legacies black kings and queens all our childhood dreams lost in the system in this white man’s world but we have come to far to let it go like this.
How are we going to win going against each other how we going to lose if we come together

A Slave Without Chains…

8-3-2016
By: Willie “King Coe” Coe

The whips have been exchanged but at the end of each day I’m still a slave. The shackles have been removed but I’m still a slave. Free labor where they work me for my food; my wages are paid dues… It’s called my debt to society but my acknowledgment of my subjugation remains denied. They lie to me and my people and say that it will be alright but it’s been over 100 years and there’s still no light in sight. Punished if I fight and a fool if I don’t. I just pray when the bell rings that I don’t choke. I smoke to give me hope and sleep so that I cannot think. To cloud out the life of a slave without chains…

I dream strange things but none of them seem to set me free, these visions of death I see only bring me closer to the God-I-Be. Because I’m a slave that’s free! A slave without chains, that’s me… That’s we; so how can a king be at peace? With Willie Lynch’s divide and conquer still combating me? They worked me for free and say; “good job!” Damn!! Suicide is so hard. It’s what they want. To break me and make me, and I fight and fight with no avail, why must they rape me? The slave without chains I be… That’s me, that’s me, that’s we; our enemy is longer massah, but it’s we. The prison is our plantation. The menu is our slop. Work the detail or rot in a cell, but only time will tell if I single-handedly fail…

The women were planted to distract us. But the fact-us is they can’t break us or make us… Or can they? Because daily my people fold and break the mold, change the code and alter the mode. So, I ask myself, do I really wanna live and grow old? Or can I decipher the code and force the world to see the vision, themselves through the eyes of the Great king Coe?? Enter my realm of thought and realize that we’re slaves without chains…

Respect and power to the Fallen comrades of the 1971 Attica Rebellion. Long live the revolution… September 9th….

Institutional Genocide

A crime of regulated deception and maniacal entrapment. How can its victim be subterfuge by the policy of disorder? The life of countless people are compelled to comply with this inhumane and devaluing condition of living. The inner maze displays a patternized scene of deteriorating machines who were once beings of humanity. For the establishment workers… Operators of procedure, life is very unfortunate and less they walk as a policized minion by choice. Dishearten by the duty they pledge to execute as legal criminals. Their wrongs are disguised by the ordained law of rightness. The inferior force can seem so gigantic to the being of oppression. The obvious order that must be implemented is disregarded by the masses. The scenery within these walls puzzle the minds of submission with its phases of becloudment. The drugs of salvation includes the focus to the realm of illusional comfort. Disparagement affects the human in a detrimental way as life begin to seem worthless. No heart of steel can feel the spirits of the real meaning actions of sincerity are looked upon as a facade to conceal a hidden agenda. In the maze of institutional genocide the beings of free will become cyclic. Programmed by instructions of a dehumanizing manual. The con is a project in a reality of the disadvantage. Their Refuge is their will of indominacy and goals of progress for triumph is liberation. The mushroom theory is in effect, physical we are fed enough to live but not what is needed to lower our risk of developing deadly health problems. Mentally the conditions of distress puts the average employee and offender in a suicidal state. Thoughts of rage being built by endurance of malorder correction is repressed. Decivilized by the principles of common survival many die every day as their imagination is content to restrain itself with the doubt of evolution. Spiritually, man has placed law of the land over the law of the universe. By policy that are conflictive, restrictions are set to hinder the full dedication and practice of one’s faith. Hope and inspiration is a threat to the totalitarian order. Humankind is distorted by the vast of restriction that are policize to regulate our privilege of freedom. So much disparity the faith of a broken soul has placed the omnipotent one secondary to the power of atrocity. Instructed to negate the life that is meant to be for the death we come to accept. All around the world the hierarchy demonstrates their beliefs and intentions for the blind common kind. Our means are justified by their ends of esoteric growth. The maze of perplexity that mechanize the human mind life is hard trying to escape the institutional genocide.

All power is vested in the people
We must stop consential peonage.

Chains of Suppression: Thoughts on Black Liberation from Prison

A Reason

Place the world under a temporary observation. There’s constant motion. Nothing stagnates but the mind. Evolution. The world revolves around one word. Progression. So how is it that we as Afro Americans are the primary race culturally regressing? Let’s dissect this. Despite a subversive government, we are the majority in the prison system in a lot of states. there is an exceeding number of us provided with government assistance. There are more of us jobless than anyone. We hold the majority when speaking of povertization. For every one of us that excels, three of us revert. I will be admitted into the prison system, I will become a victim of violence (racial genocide), and I will fall victim to poverty. When I listen to the radio, I hear artist advertising regression, embedding in our hearts that nefarious activity is acceptable, influencing avaricious mindsets to attain everyday life. In this modern day society, black indicates aggression. Black installs fear. But in reality, black resembles power. This is the reason government officials placed COINTELPRO into action. To progress, we must travel to our past briefly, to identify where we derived from. This exempts historical amnesia from our culture.

After the Emancipation Proclamation, blacks in the South became free, but with no way to acquire financial stability due to Jim Crow laws being placed in effect. Jim Crow laws were specifically placed in effect to recreate financial circulation. Blacks/slaves did everything. So when the document was signed, the economy roughly crashed due to the fact that whites were devoid the knowledge required to execute the primary job that preserved the economy. We sustained that knowledge. We were the essential factor (roads, railroads, canals, bridges). We were the individuals who constructed these. So the Jim Crow laws were activated impeding us from obtaining jobs. Sharecropping was produced. With us being so far behind and free for the first time in foreign territory we were coerced into this form of legal justifiable slavery. We had nothing, but our families needed taken care of. Blockades.

Fast forward to today. We have blockades placed in our path today, but we attain the vehemence to overcome suppression. This starts with self. Dissecting our actions and utilizing our position in society to enlighten the unaware. Refuse to subsist of the mentally enslaved. Unite as one and assist. Not oppress. Educate. Inform. Our worst enemy is self. Many search for a reason. That progression be the reason.

Psychological Warfare

When it comes to the government I am a firm believer that they have mastered how to place a circumference around the African American societies mental functionalism. This explains our unawareness and some’s nonchalant behavior towards the realities of oppression. We are dealing with an intricate system that can be undisputedly disproved if only we weren’t suffering from historical amnesia. Check this. Studies from Carl Rogers show that we are born humanistic, stressing that humans have enormous potential for personal growth only if the mind is utilized in the correct way. He emphasizes the importance of free will and humans ability to make choices. So why do we fail to utilize this God given talent? Why do we fail to see the mental strain the government has on us? Why do we fail to see that we are involved in a psychological war with those whom we allow to govern us?

Our minds are being toyed with. We are independent variables in a “true experiment”. We are part of a control group and which we are used as pawns. People do not realize that the government utilizes the double-blind technique as a form of manipulation on both parties. Theirs and ours. Some of those who work for the government are unaware of the negative infestations placed upon their mind. The government controls all. For example the right to election. No matter who the president is things will happen exactly how the legislative, executive, and judicial branch plan. The right to election is simply a psychological manipulation tactic which is used in a placebo effective form. We are just unaware and lack the motivation to seek truism when it’s clearly in our face.

The way we are raised and oppressed is a blockade to mental independancy where we grow an ecological view of perception of freedom which becomes an innate mechanism for generations to come. The government uses classical and respondent conditioning us to manipulate us into thinking we are free, when in all actuality, we are in a harnessed environment. This is why we give an unconditioned response as a natural reflex to those who seek to expose the truth. We must learn to think for ourselves. We are placed in a controlled society for experimentation so it will be easier to rule out extraneous and distracting variables to manipulate all for capitalistic reasons. Certain things are placed upon us at as a test to measure our intelligence, anxiety, and leadership abilities in which any who shows any signs of radicalism shall be exterminated per COINTELPRO. A form of justifiable homicide.

Obstacles are constantly thrown our way to suppress the African race and confine an excessive number of us to povertization. Many begin to languish and turn to mind altering substances such as depressants and stimulants, which turns individuals physical or psychologically dependent for a sense of motivation. Now one has to gain the strength and support to detoxify theirself just to regain stable consciousness in a world where we are coerced to not be conscious at all. Now ain’t that some shit…

All in all, we are under what I like to call “involuntary political hypnosis” they have us in an involuntary altered state of conscious where we actually believe we are being governed in a righteous manner. We are truly victims of post hypnotic suggestions.

Relinquishing to the oppressive tactics of the government and our subversive minds is no longer an option. No longer will we commit any faux pas. We will become coherent and exert our minds in a productive manner. We must equip ourselves for war, for it is in full effect. Proper preparation prevents poor performance…

Words from Comrade and black Liberator Jordan Pack
Chains of Suppression

What is the meaning of life? Don’t confuse this with your individual purpose of life. I witness so many, roaming about in the world they don’t understand. The Black man incoherently searching for his place. Involving ones self with groups that embrace racial genocide, unconsciously limiting their lifespan, but influencing the youth to embrace this lifestyle as their common ground. The conscious few limit their task to a petite group, but we retain an abundance of knowledge that must be expanded. I survey our youth traveling a road that leads to nowhere. Then I glimpse at their mental guidance. An immature mind conducting an immature mind, will not mature. It is the obligation of us conscious few to surmount the task of transforming the incredulous, nullifying any defeatist. To transgress, we must believe and possess a Herculean heart. Our challenge is to reactivate a cohesion that’s been obsolescent in our people for so long, making us permissible to tyranny. Empower the minds of our women. Unveil the significance of their existence, encouraging them to flourish from their atavistic ways. Our women are our support system. To subsist as a non-conformist of racial equality is an act of surrealism that will keep us inferior to an oppressive hierarchy. It is mandatory that we act as a as vanguards to conciliate the masses. This is the only way to reconstruct. Or situation is mutable. The fact that we are cognizant means our state of suppression optional. Let’s unbreak these chains.
Self Demoralization of a Durable Race

The View
Growing as a young Black man, I’ve been priviledged to obtain a liberated mind and view the world from a bird’s eye view. For the last few years, an immense amount of my concentration has been directed towards dissecting our race and culture. Alot of individuals blame our culture for barely maintaining and a lot of individuals have become content with just getting by. What happened? We derive from a powerful background. People who sacrifice their lives and well-being to ensure that we, as a people, gravitate towards success. Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Dr. King, Malcolm X. These individuals became colleagues of the same vision. The betterment of the people. So whom are we to devaluate and ravage the path these leaders have set forth? How do we modify our belief systems to make a drastic change in our communities? The answer is one mind at a time. But first, allow me to ramify a few of these problems.

Deceiving leaders and our youth. The primary influence on our race today is the hip-hop culture. Majority of us just recite the lyrics without deciphering a message or picture they are portraying. Their lyrics promote and nihilistic lifestyle, suggesting malicious and licentious behavior, depraving our youths minds, influencing them to embrace regression. We allow this to be embedded in our kids heads during their primitive years, so they grow to forbid the fruit of knowledge. Do our leaders realize their strength? Do they realize the mental restrictions they are placing on the African American youth? Is it that they are ignorant of this, or do they just not care? We become so engaged in negativity for self gratification, that we forget our every action is constantly being observed by our shadow. Our children are a reflection of us. The world is a complex matrix that will take a collective whole to progress and cause a mass impact. The world is in constant evolution. And the more we become mentally and trapped the further we will regress.

Preparing Ourselves

Our minds have been submitted to the point our primary goal is oblivious amongst us. We must govern our own minds and quit allowing negativity to pollute our infrastructure. Quit praising materialistic things. Other ethnicities make a mockery of our people. They realize that we are involved in an internal Civil War and they capitalize on the
