quit your sh!t america!
how in the hell is my black skin more threatening than a white suspect with an assault rifle ’round his neck?!
the way they let that boy flee the scene while people were shouting “he just shot someone” is total disrespect.
what’s it gonna take for the black man, woman, and child to belong?
why the whitewashed media protect racists with assault rifles yet call me a terrorist for holding a sign stating i too belong?
from the emmett till generation to black lives matter, we’ve been singing the same ol’ song.
how many times must we state i too america?!
why the all lives matter fanatics only tough on when the defendants are brown or black?
tell me, how do those that purport pro-life fail to stake their claim when the slain is black?
if it’s make america great again,
when we gonna talk about her heinous acts?
when gop revisionists rile white supremacists with rhetoric like “take our country back,”
are you not taken aback?
today marks 65 years since the ideologue of make america great again murdered emmett till
yet still, the murderous pack is murdering us still.
if democracy is dialogue,
when we gonna talk about how the hits are being orchestrated from capitol hill?
from jim crow to cointelpro,
this nation’s been wielding legislation as agents of oppression.
if the pen is mightier than the sword,
when we gonna expound stop and frisk and stand your ground as systemic weapons?
if you ask me why i’m no longer talking to white people about race,
i will tell you: the fear of a black man,
i mean the presumption of reasonable suspicion is no reason to view my black skin as a weapon.
how many of our unarmed brothers and sisters must die before racial bias is called into question?
to be specific, why the snark remarks against blm protesters yet the constant need to decriminalize catholic priest, woody allen, and other caucasian child molesters?
the next time you decide to portray protesters as looters,
be sure to illustrate how the secretary of state stole an election.
how many members of the gop must we see steal an election before voter suppression is called into question?
if black people don’t vote,
why the constant need to enact voter suppression?
don’t believe the hype, we need every eligible voter to exercise the right to vote in this election.
when the experts on how not to get shot and whatnot retort the killing of an unarmed young man with character assassination,
how do you not see something is really wrong with this nation?
if you’re black in america, they will kill you then assassinate your character on every news station in the nation.
why the agenda to emasculate the black male on all occasions?
why the all-seeing eye wanna televise effeminate depictions?
why the airwave frequencies target our youth with promiscuity and glorified tales of drug addiction?
first they kill our image of self
then they leave us in food deserts with doritos, hot cheetos, and soda.
how effective can the police be
when every brother or sister that looks like me fits the description
and johnny law has a bloodthirst to reach a quota?
when the american dream begins to feel like a nightmare, one has no choice but to stay woke.
my poems are not poems,
and i say that to say, if there is to be any hope,
every black person in america must march to the probate court, exercise your 2nd amendnent rights
then unify resistance on November 3rd with a vote.
