What’s up with Madvillainy 2?
M: We got some songs (laughs).

D: I mean we got a lot of it done already, part of that’s why we’re meeting up now to discuss some of that. It’s in effect but it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when.

M: Can’t rush with this kind of thing, especially after the first one.

D: It’s the follow up, without over thinking it though, it’s a continuation, ain’t gotta’ be better or worse. Where y’all last left off at, next episode. We got a lot of songs done. Two or three more songs and it’s wrapped up.

Mobs lynched Mary Turner on May 17, 1918 in Lowndes County, Georgia because she vowed to have those responsible for killing her husband arrested. Her husband was arrested in connection with the shooting and killing Hampton Smith, a white farmer for whom the couple had worked, and for wounding his wife. Sidney Johnson. a Black man, apparently killed Smith because he was tired of the farmer’s abuse. Unable to find Johnson. the killers lynched eight other Blacks Including Hayes Turner and his wife Mary. The mob hanged Mary by her feet, poured gasoline and oil on her and set fire to her body. One white man sliced her open and Mrs. Turner’s baby tumbled to the ground with a “little cry” and the mob stomped the baby to death and sprayed bullets into Mary Turner. (NAACP: Thirty Years of Lynching in the U.S. 1889-1918 )

White peoples history is no fairytale.

 ”Ra”, or “res” in the Kemetic language means “to wake up”, “to rise up”, “to keep awake”, or ”to watch”. Ra is also the name given to the Sun (as in the Egyptian Sun God Ra) which re-news itself by circling to re-appear. In fact, you can find the prefix “re” in many words in the English dictionary that points to their Kemetic origins. “Why would Egyptian words show up in the English language?”, you may wonder. This is because the early settlers of a European land revered the African/Egyptian symbol of the cross known as the Ankh. They named their land ”Ankhland”, which over time became “England”.
