This video is incorrectly categorized, it should be not be labeled under Communism. @psykroll I am quite familiar with Gil Scott Heron and his works---poetry, biographical and musical---in this particular poem Heron was speaking specifically to African-Americans---who have always been his target audience and the largest consumers of his products---however "The Revolution" was not necessarily a black only affair. Most African-Americans are productive members of society, if you are concerned with individualism, I don't think it's fair to judge 40million individuals by the actions/appearances of a small group. When it comes to "violent revolution", Gil Scott Heron did not necessarily advocate for a "violent revolution", these "implications" are at best imagined and are perhaps a result of the imagery that has been coupled with the music. Heron's message was that when "The Revolution" arrives people will not be able to rely on their little conveniences they had to come to know and will have to participate in ways that they had not before. On a personal note my parents lived through this time period---my father lived in a segregated Virginia---my parents went to see some of the first Gil Scott Heron performances in my area, at the time all kinds of ideas were being bounced around about "revolt", "revolution", "liberation", "integration" and it was a time of real substantive discussion and debate about the future of African Americans. Whether you agree with Heron or not, it seems to me that you don't quite understand the dynamics of the age, what it meant to be part of society then and how alienated/ostracized/hurt African Americans felt---and feel---by the very society that you are telling them to just be "productive members of". As all things in this Universe, it wasn't that simple. The video is incorrectly categorized please help by the changing the tags to more appropriate/specific ones. Thank you.
