I want to rage. And weep. And cuss and scream. Scream at the top of my lungs….
DO YOU NOT SEE HIM?
Do you not see his bleeding, lifeless body in the street?
If it doesn’t make you angry,
If it doesn’t make you want to move or speak,
Than you stand with the bigots who slayed him.
Your indifference is not naive. You see what I see.
Your indifference shows your privilege.
Because his life is not worth your voice.
Because maybe he deserved it.
He WAS running down the street being black.
That in itself is suspicious right?
Suspicious enough to grab a gun and jump in a truck.
Must be a bank robber, that’s what they look like right?
The same system that tells us justice will be served
In the same sentence makes no arrest on his behalf
Even after a video. Privilege.
He looks like a criminal?
No he looks like Jesus.
Who you are American speaks SO LOUDLY, I can’t hear what you say.
And you let him die with no outcry. Over and over again.
