"You don’t have to be doing anything, you don’t have to be speaking out against this system to become victimized by it. John Africa teaches us that when something is threatening you, the only solution is to get rid of the threat, or you and anybody else will never be safe, will never be secure. You can go to school, you can make a lot of money, you can do all of that, but none of that will secure you or your family. The only thing that will secure you and your family is to get rid of what is threatening your family. That is not simply a right that you have, it’s an obligation; it’s a responsibility that you have to do that. If you think you have the right to choose not to, then fine, go ahead. But don’t open up your mouth and complain when shit happens to you and your family. Don’t open your mouth and complain. This is work that we have to do."
