Culture v. Power

Understand this......
There is no reason for you to prove yourself to anybody, except yourself.  
When the world talks about culture; understand this.....
It is not talking about culture.
It is talking about power.
The difference between the African cultures which have vanished,
and the European cultures which are decaying,
is that Europe had the power.
And that is the only difference.
It's not that Europe was civilized and Africans were not.
That's a lie
Do you understand that?
James Baldwin

The Fire Next Time is a hip hop compilation project focusing on police brutality through the eyes of hip hop artists and producers.  The words of James Baldwin are spread across the project giving historic context to racism in America from a leader that does not receive the credit he deserves.
