Let me be clear: policing evolves from slave catching…You cannot reform policing that evolved from slave catching. You have to abolish it.

Africans in the United States must remember that the slave ships brought no West Indians, no Caribbeans, no Jamaicans or Trinidadians or Barbadians to this hemisphere. The slave ships brought only African people and most of us took the semblance of nationality from the places where slave ships dropped us off.
