Convicted by an all-white jury, twice, the poor bastard rotted in a fucking cell for 20 years, for a crime it's pretty sure he did not commit.

But he was black. And stood up for himself. Which as we can see right now, is not a good thing in the USA. Not much changes there.



Have you read The Sixteenth Round, his autobiography? Great book, he's a clever man with a great sense of irony.

Really moving story, that man was a fighter in every snse.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Fucking hell, there's a blast from the past, I sang that with a band as a spotty 17 years old.

Great track.
