Half of America will see a white man, shooting a black monster out of fear for his life… Half of America will see a young black boy, defending himself against an overzealous wannabe cop before being shot in cold blood…
…but who will see how ratchet we’ve become? Kids, unfulfilled dreams senselessly murdered while politicians debate the right to bear arms. First world women quietly being trafficked through American caves for profit. Drugs abused to take our mind off the pain of being privileged. Homeless arrested for trying to eat the scraps of unused food that is wasted rather than put to good use. Religious discrimination in the land that was supposedly created by people seeking religious freedom. Pro-life, pro death penalty. Made up fear created to create made up reasons for war to create made up reasons to kill to spread a made up myth of Democracy by a country that’s a made up Republic; made up because the people in power quit caring about the people they represent years ago…
Are we hopeless? No, but we’re definitely insane because we keep doing the same thing over and over again while hoping for different results. Do we?… hope for different results?
…when the bullets fly
and the kids die
who will cry and
who will close their eyes
to keep from seeing…
…who will close their mind
and who will close their heart
to keep from bleeding…
