We need to put the American flag down because we’ve caught as much hell under that as we did the Confederate flag!
Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag! What flag do the police have? What flag flies over the Non-Justice Department? What flag flies over the White House, where a Black man lives that’s called “nigga,” “nigga,” “nigga” every day? What about that flag? So every time we die they give us a symbol, no substance. We died on Edmund Pettus Bridge under that flag. We fought in wars under that flag, and came back and were hung and murdered and brutalized, under that flag.
We want justice under that American flag—or what the hell is the use of us paying allegiance to a flag under which we get no justice?
