lyrics

bhangra to (the) Max
let candles and police stations burn
max was killed
max is dead
what more can i say
everything was said
by one gunshot
that no one gives a fuck about
because judging from the circumstances
this life wasn't worth much
ask his wife and kids
how they felt when they got word
the circumstances?
come on, man
he was killed by the revenue service
during a raid
the reason?
illegal trade
welcome to poland a.d. 2010
fights for a cross
lynching of gypsies
the nigger is dead
fuck him.
are you happy?
another scumbag's gone
remember that he left three kids behind
that raised with love
will carry in them the fire of fury against poles
especially these wearing uniforms
the fucking gallow awaits
rubble dubble there'll be trouble
there's no other way
when the self-proclaimed authorities
kill innocent people because they don't fit into their world view
clouds like they had been laid with a spoon
stretched
spilled all over the sky
wait for someone to notice them
to see how
the world spins round and round
a drop of sweat that runs between the thighs
must melt the grim shame
the last bells shall ring
bells shooting from pistols pow pow bang bang
saint symbols pow pow bang bang
blood has to be spilled pow pow bang bang
a caravan of colours pow pow bang bang
another death pow pow bang bang

This text is not directyly connected with the events on 11.11 but concerns the murder of a black-skinned Nigerian, Max Itoya, that happened on the 23rd of May 2010 on the marketplace near the 10th-Anniversary Stadium in Praga, one of Warsaw's districts. It is unnecessary to comment on the event but the circumstances and a wider look on the migration policy of the state as well as the problems connected with it demand not only a comment but also broad criticism.

Mybe our Polish reality is not strictly racist but events like this and the official discourse of public reaction show how far we still are from the ideal. Consider whether this death has changed anything, whether anyone got to understand better how deeply rascist and xenophobic the society we live in Praga, in Warsaw, in Poland is. Do you think our glorious civil society was changed by this event?
