An open letter in rap form to the so-called “revolutionaries” and Marxists who fight one form of oppression but continue to uphold other forms of oppression with their misogyny and homophobia.

An Indo-German collaboration with production by the talented DJ BC from Germany and the lyrics and vocals by A-List from India.

Lyrics:

Maybe your revolution but it isn’t mine,
Not till you stand up every single time,
Passion is solution, not obedience,
The revolution will not be at your convenience(X2)

I support gay marriage, he gave me evolutionary shit,
Saying they’ll manage, we should not hurry this,
Then he called me counter-revolutionary, shit,
I asked him, “Do you know what counter-revolutionary is?”,
Sick, he said he wasn’t a homo,
I was like, Cousin, Wait shit, Oh no,
Let me spark this, in slow-mo, probe it,
So you’re a Marxist who is homophobic?
Let me factor in this, it is a checklist,
Called Margaret Thatcher a bitch, are you a sexist?
It tends to be appalling, see,
How you abuse her gender for her policies,
You never called George Bush a dog or a dick,
But she’s a bitch and a cunt? I’m stopping this shit,
That’s balls, here’s some clarity for you son,
It’s equality for all or equality for none,
Or equality for none,
So listen to me, my son,

Maybe your revolution but it isn’t mine,
Not till you stand up every single time,
Passion is solution, not obedience,
The revolution will not be at your convenience(X2)

Open your hearts listen, I put my pen in this vision,
Can’t have Marxism without feminism,
Unity is the solution, listen to what I say right,
Fuck a revolution that excludes gay pride,
Or brown pride and tribal pride,
Let the sound rise, whether by rifle’s side,
Or peaceful, don’t even think it’s stupid?
The revolution must be inclusive,
Always elitists who talk of sacrifices,
From where the streets is, but they never sacrifice shit,
Using words with multiple syllables like appropriation,
You tell ’em they are killing for new holy nation,
But you forget in the theory and vast images,
What we all know be your class privilege,
Gotta check ‘coz the hate stays limitless,
Tend to forget our straight male privilege,
We live in cities and brush off vast villages,
It’s so shitty, our upper caste privilege,
Our upper caste privilege,
So we brush off vast villages,
Children of the rich always quote Marx,
While poor kids get bullet wounds and choke marks

This is Privilege.
Know Your Privilege.
Check Your Privilege.
