Please give this to the family and read it to any memorial gathering.  Thank You.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of my brother James D. York. The times we met and discussed the opression of our people
and our need to be warriors that equaled those of African greatness, Sparta greatness, Roman Greatness, Greek greatness and
what it meant to be a current day equivalent of Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Haydee Santa Maria and others.  What we did individually and as an organized revolutionary organization helped change the course of history.  The education we received from Malcolm X produced the drive and determination that we will never kneel again to anyone, and our struggle for total recognition must  still continue.
In the spirit of Jimmy York who always proclaimed undying love for our people and all oppressed people no matter what nationality,
I and my family will always keep Bashir James D. York Hameed in our hearts, our minds and in our history that we pass on, write on, and advocate to our family and others who wish to fight against injustice and promote love and true human rights for all people. May Jimmy rest in peace. May Allah understand our struggle and welcome Jimmy with great love.
