Stuck Mojo – An Open Letter lyrics

An open letter to the Rev. Jesse Jackson

We, the members of the Mojo family,
Feel that your actions and retoric as a self professed leader
Of the black community are in fact detrimental to the very
People you claim to represent.
We also feel that as a result you do much to undermind the well-being
And harmony of the United States as a whole. You kind of work for
The advancement of the black community and you speak from a position
That the black population cannot advance itself socialy, politically
Or economically because an immovable object, the white establishment,
Forever blocks it's path
Yet you preach further support such as welfare and affirmative action
That put members of the population in a position of dependancy and
Reliance on the establishment
You bask in the glow of the media spot light, you passionately decree
That racism and prejudice are alive today as they were four hundred
Years ago, but does this do anything to reverse it's effect?
No one with the intellegence will deny that a great atrocity was commited
Against the black race at the hands of white settlers of this country,
But a wound cannot heal if it is continuously re-opened
That is to say, that it will heal but it will take much longer and the
Scar it leaves will be grotesque and raise high on the skin
A true leader leads by example and the example you have shown is not one
Of stregnth of character, self-reliance, commentment to excellence or
Personal accountability
It's these traits that are necessary to advace oneself as an individual
It is only as strong curagous and moral individuals that any race can
Live the quality of life that it chooses
We give our deepest respect to the true leaders:
Alan Keys, J. C. Watts, Tony Brown, and Dr. Walter Williams
Men who never deny their heritege but are proud to be first and
Foremost a part of the human race
