Public Enemy's Chuck D Releases Statement, With New Record "Tear Down This Wall", As Mistachuck

Chuck D Addresses The Growing Tangible And Intangible Wall Existing Between The Black And Brown People In North America

NEW YORK, May. 4 /2SPR/ - 1989 US President Ronald Reagan chastised the then Iron curtain of communist countries about the separatist existence of the Berlin Wall. There presently is a multi billion dollar wall funded by the United States with similar isolationist separatist policies ...the wall between the US and Mexico. Chuck D addresses the growing tangible and intangible wall existing between the black and brown people in North America.

In Mexico, new figures have been released showing more than 5,000 Mexican migrants have died trying to reach the United States since 1994. Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission says an average three migrants lost their lives every two days in the US-Mexico border region in 2007 and 2008.

And now by default its attached to being a themed commentary to the recent passed one sided racist immigration LAW in the State of Arizona... This statement from Chuck D and his wife Dr Gaye Theresa Johnson Professor Of Black Studies and Chicano Studies UC Santa Barbara.

'Jan Brewer's decision to sign the Arizona immigration bill into law is racist, deceitful, and reflects some of the most mean-spirited politics against immigrants that the country has ever seen. The power that this law gives to police, to detain people that they suspect to be undocumented, brings racial profiling to a new low. Brewer's actions and those of Joe Arpaio, Russell Pearce, the Arizona State Senate are despicable, inexcusable, and endorse the all-out hate campaign that Joe Arpaio, Russell Pearce, and others have perpetrated upon immigrants for years. The people of Arizona who voted for this bill, as well as those who crafted it, demonstrate no regard for the humanity or contributions of Latino people. And for all of those who have chosen not to speak up, shame on you for silently endorsing this legislated hate.

In 1991 I wrote a song criticizing Arizona officials (including John McCain and Fife Symington) for rejecting the federal holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The same politics I wrote about in "By the Time I Get to Arizona" are alive and well in Arizona today, but this time the target is Brown people.

These actions must stop. I am issuing a call to action, urging my fellow musicians, artists, athletes, performers, and production companies to refuse to work in Arizona until officials not only overturn this bill, but recognize the human rights of immigrants. This should include the NBA playoffs, revisiting the actions of the NFL in 1993, when they moved the Superbowl to Pasadena in protest against Arizona's refusal to recognize Dr. King. We all need to speak up in defense of our brothers and sisters being victimized in Arizona, because things are only getting worse. What they’re doing to immigrants is appalling, but it will be even more damning if we remain silent.'

LYRICS:
SOMEBODY'S SOULS BEEN EXPOSED
IN THIS HOUSE OF BLUES
THE REAL EMPEROR WITHOUT CLOTHES
HAS MUCH TO LOSE
ROAD WEARY TROUBADOUR / MAYBE I'M AN
AMBASSADOR
NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH SOME SPOOK
OR BASTARD BY THE DOOR

BEFORE I GOT PAID BY THE WORD NOW ITS DEFERRED
NEW DUST BOWL POET
YOU AIN'T HEARD IT
NOW YOU HEARD

SHOWED YALL I AIN'T TIRED
DAMN SURE AIN'T QUIET
PLENTY OF THINGS TO TEACH ABOUT
I'M REACHING TO THE CHOIR

DAMN MY MAN ONE AT A TIME
THIS BEATS FIRE
FACE TOLD ME BRENT
YOU BE BOMBIN THE PLACE
THE BOB TO THE BOB THE BOB IS BACK
WEAVIN BOBBIN AND SPILLIN
LIKE WOMACK, MARLEY AND DYLAN

DEEP SONGS FRONT PAGE OF YOUR LIFE
THIS IS YOU
INVASION OF YOUR MENTAL VACATION AND YOUR CREW

THIS AIN'T BRAND NEW JUST BECAUSE
YALL AIN'T NEVER KNEW

I SPIT POLITICS ON THAT WALL
WHERE THE PEOPLE GET SCREWED

HIP HOP SUPPORTIN NON STOP SWEATSHOPS
SO YOU CAN RETAIL
YOUR ASS OFF WITHOUT FAIL

THEN SOME OF YOU GET SETBACK
BLAME THIS IMMIGRATION EXPLOITATION
WITH YOUR THE LACK OF INFORMATION
BY YELLING WETBACKS

SOMEBODY ACTIN FOREVER 21
CANT HIDE
CANT CRY
CANT RUN
CANT BLAME IT ON THE CRACK

OR FIGHT BACK
WITHOUT A PASSPORT
MILLENNIUM GESTAPO
BORDER CONTROL
THE NEW CONTACT SPORT

YALL CALL EM IMMIGRANT AND TAKE EM TO COURT
BUT LOOK AT YOUR HOOD AND YOUR LACK OF SUPPORT

SOME OF THESE DJS HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY'RE PLAYIN
SOME OF THESE RHYMERS DON'T REALIZE WHAT THE HELL THEY'RE SAYIN
SO I LET EM CHASE THE CASH HONEY
WITHOUT A PLAN
FORGET JOHNNY WAS THE MAN IN BLACK
BUT I'M THE BLACK IN MAN

THIS IS MODERN DAY SLAVERY AND PART OF THE PLAN

WITH ALL DUE RESPECT SIR ,TEAR DOWN THAT WALL MAN!

UNDERSTAND THESE PRESSURES
IN THIS SO CALLED RECESSION

FOR THE BLACK BROWN WOMAN AND MAN

ITS DEPRESSION

ROSTER OF THE STRICKEN
BERNIE MADE OFF WITH THE MONEY
NOW THE HIDDEN HAND IS BITTEN
SO NOW IT AIN'T FUNNY

I BEG YA PARDON
WHO'S SAVIN YA
YOU CALLIN THEM LABORERS
WALK ON BY AND NEVER SAY HI
OR CONSIDER THEM NEIGHBORS

SOME GOT THE NERVE TO LIVE IN TEXAS
ARIZONA, CALI AND NOT KNOW
EVEN MISSIN THE CLUE IN,..
NEW MEXICO

DISS THE BROWN BROTHERS AND SISTERS ON WHAT THEY
WHAT THEY DONE DID
THIS SIDE OF THE EARTH

THEY BUILT PYRAMIDS

MY PASSION COMES
AND WHAT I KNOW AND WHO I AM I REFUSE TO LOSE OR TO BE

CONFUSED BY THIS NEW SCAM
SCARRED BY SARCASM
UNCLE SAMS RACIST ORGASM
WAS JUST A SPASM
SCARED OF ENTHUSIASM

OF THE BLACK AND BROWN PLANET
THE JEALOUS SAY DAMN IT

STUPID ASS WALL
CANT STOP US ALL

WITH DUE RESPECT
HEED THE CALL

TEAR DOWN THIS WALL
