   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!
