Between listening to the Yuri Kochiyama cut and reading Ta Nehisi Coates on Malcolm X, I'm reminded how much white folks freak out about the phrase, "By any means necessary" and ignore the fact that, you know, the means could be as simple as "Hey stop that." "Ok" and what level of investment white society had in oppression that made discussion a non-functional tactic without further action.

And, you know, the levels of cognitive dissonance necessary in the face of firebombings, assassinations, rape and lynchings to believe that the problem was it was black people who weren't being peaceful enough.
