No one, but no one, in this city no matter where they live or how they live is free from the fairness of our administration, we'll find you and be fair to you wherever you are. - Harold Washington, the first Black mayor in the United States, Chicago circa 1984

i remember green suits on a black mayor

i loved harold washington. and whenever i think of him i think of how i was also very fond of x-clan:

i remember green suits on a Black mayor.
i remember nine-millimeter child slayers.
i remember all the times that you called me an animal,
but in milwaukee there's a cannibal. look out.
some of the things that you just don't figure,
'cause it gets a lot blacker and a whole lot bigger.
don't matter nightstick, or bring your big trigger,
but our nation is protected by some pro-black niggas.

and by the way - is it humanity?
or is it vanity?
this is protected by the red. and the black. and the green.
