Linton Kwesi Johnson – Fite Dem Back – Brixton Riots

When I see the white supremacists or KKK marching in the USA, or the British Movement or NeoNazis marching in Europe, it makes me think of this:

Hatred and violence breed hatred and violence. You don’t drive out darkness with more darkness.

Linton is a genius who summed it up in his poetry.

Fite Dem Back – Linton Kwesi Johnson

We gonna smash their brains in
Cause they ain’t got nofink in ’em
We gonna smash their brains in
Cause they ain’t got nofink in ’em

Some a dem say dem a niggah haytah
An’ some a dem say dem a black beatah
Some a dem say dem a black stabbah
An’ some a dem say dem a paki bashah

Fashist an di attack
Noh baddah worry ’bout dat
Fashist an di attack
Wi wi’ fite dem back
Fashist an di attack
Den wi countah-attack
Fashist an di attack
Den wi drive dem back

We gonna smash their brains in
Cause they ain’t got nofink in ’em
We gonna smash their brains in
Cause they ain’t got nofink in ’em
