Saul Williams Shares Email From JAY-Z, Disputes His Take on 'Our f*ght for Economic Freedom'

image



Saul Williams has shared an email from JAY-Z in which Jay was referencing an interview he's not sure "is new or old," shares his take on the f*ght for economic freedom. In the accompanying caption, Williams disputes Jay's a*sessment.

"Our f*ght for economic freedom is new," Jay said in the email, per Williams' Instagram post on Sunday. It’s not the same war that Harriet Tubman was f*ghting. Jay went on to say that challenging each other "is a must" but said that care should be taken to ensure that challenging doesn't come across as "judgment."

In his own comments, Williams said he wouldn't characterize the f*ght for economic freedom "as new" and noted the difficulty of achieving "psychological freedom" from capitalism.

I wouldn't characterize our f*ght for economic freedom as "new". There have been wealthy black Americans in every generation since the 1600's, and in Africa since forever. During segregation accumulated black wealth and black-owned business were at a peak. Black newspapers, magazines, schools, record labels... Yet psychological freedom from hard taught capitalism is hard to earn. African billionaires, for example, have brought little relief to the continent of Africa. The seduction of power and the systemic constraints of white supremacy will take more than money to burn. The root of the market economy is still almost entirely based on the sourcing of rare minerals where the exploitation of African miners and land is the analogue reality of the our modern-age technological advances. Thus, we push for essentially socialist measures which provide healthcare and education to all. Money can be disappeared, but the lessons you learn along the way are yours to keep. Whether we learn from the streets, schools, in prisons, or by playing the game, it is that hard-earned knowledge that allows us to understand how to spend what we earn in ways that can truly make a difference. Even as we push against the systemic structures in criminal justice, housing, etc. we know that it is not simply a question of money being used against us rather it is the ideology that negates our worth as human beings that seems to justify the constant exploitation of our worth and work. Thus the attack is largely against belief systems, philosophies empowered by money and a corrupted rule of law. Guggenheims, Rockefellers, Fords, Nobels, and the great philanthropists and supporters of the arts are all in recompense of the oil, the factory work, the mining, the weaponry, the staple crops, the plantations... that profit off the design of the system, after which the charitable hand is the only one left to give. I challenge the messaging through music when I feel it supports the system primarily because I see art and music as tools or weaponry that can be used to destroy it. The truth bangs harder. We learn that the more we tell it.

Jay so far removed from reality that money clouding his ability to resonate discernment between economic freedom and psychological freedom from capitalism. Since he's a capitalist himselfimage Marcy Me.

n*ggas want to get jigga outta here sooo bad.

Only getting at him like this because his haircut is trash.

People are stupid like that. His current look doesn't fit a certain idea people have of him, so they get frustrated by him. The frustration turns to hate.

Jigga will do and say anything to be at the top but not be labeled a sell out. He's trying to change the narrative as if he's some sort of pioneer trying to navigate uncharted territory.

SC you are a snake no matter how much you try to blend in with your environment we see your the slit tongue. Philanthropy with a black face doesn't make you any better than Donald Trump.

The idea that Jay-Z is "no better than Donald Trump", and actually believing it...

What if I told you that the hair is a marketing decision?

As Hov reaches peak capitalism it seems like he's doing slight things to make sure people know he's still of the culture.

Any other person I wouldn't bother with this thought but Hov calculates every single thing he does.

NFL donates money to a non-profit that cuts black mens dreads off. Hov has locs now so that criticism went away quickly. It just seems like he's thought out all the ways to make himself bulletproof.

Screenshotting an email and then posting a social media response an entire essay is absolute ho sh*t.

You got something to say then say it to the man who addressed you.

There's no context in jayz email at all while this other dude writing an entire essay

Seriously. This dude just played himself. I don’t know what he was trying to gain by violating his “friend” trust like that.

Isnt it kind of selfish to expect a person with no cares in the world to lower his position in life to be relatable to a group of lower class people? Come on now

Jay is right. Our current f*ght is different from our old f*ght. Our old f*ght was about recognition under the law. We've mostly won that f*ght. Not entirely but mostly.

Our new f*ght is about economic parity and that's a different war because the law isn't the tool or the obstacle anymore. Now, the tool is our collective wealth and the obstacle is the entrenched capital systems that predate our current legal position.

To me, it's the difference between f*ghting to get a job and then f*ghting to accrue wealth.

I realize that's a simplification so take it as unassailable truth.

How y’all gonna tell someone they’re doing something wrong when you’re not in their position. Expect him to be perfect and make everyone happy on BX and in the world. Y’all asking the impossible. Even when you rich their are “powers that be” beyond your wealth’s power. Play chess not checkers. And all white people arent the issue. And some of those are fans of his . It’s a thin line

Well maybe because y'all dismiss it when Jay does it but when it's Diddy or somebody y'all cry like it's the end of the world. I'm a simple man. I just ask for consistency.
