From street combatant to revolutionary servant of the people
August 29, 2017
*/by Khalfani Malik Kaldun/*
A lump of coal becomes a beautiful diamond after enduring long and
intense pressure. Then it shines and is adored by the whole world.
When we come out of our mother’s womb, at this moment we represent the
purest form of life’s existence. We develop personality and character
based on what our parents instill inside us early in life. If we are
exposed to affluence, our journey into young adulthood will be easy.
However, those of us born into the unavoidable conditions of poverty
learn early what real struggle is all about.
Growing up in economically oppressive conditions is like the molding and
shaping of that diamond. Privilege breeds individualism, arrogance,
selfishness. Poverty and oppression breeds a deep resistance to it in
those subjected to it.
Historically, all conscious movements have declared that the change
maker will come from the oppressed communities inside this country.
All who have sacrificed their lives and resources to bring about change
in our society develop a passion for service. They were either coming
out of conditions of oppression or were simply tired of inequality and
sick of good human beings suffering oppression.
As a youth living in poverty, I rebelled against it joining a street
organization and engaging in a criminal lifestyle. My conditioning,
being a poor young Black man thrown into the system, molded me into the
new man I am today.
Now I am sincerely a revolutionary servant of the oppressed people.
Being a servant is a call to duty, to aid and serve those who need me.
Sometimes, this duty calls for me to help people who are the worst forms
of life. This work is truly a labor of love. This is not the work for
the weak at heart.
As revolutionaries, we know we cannot save or help everybody, yet we
seek to serve by saving and helping one soul at a time. I am an example
that change is possible if you want it.
I am no longer a threat to society; I am a servant of the people.
Collectively, we can change this world! It won’t be easy; nothing ever
is. Power to the people!
