Civil Rights Training

It’s not about,
If you’re white, red or brown.
It’s about what is right and what is wrong.
What gives an affluent society,
The right to sacrifice an innocent man,
So that it can soothe, its collective anxiety?
What gives them the privilege,
To invade a freeman’s sovereignty?

When a man is intimidated,
And then terrorized,
By cops pointing guns at him,
How can a man’s brain comprehend?
He can’t fight, he can’t flight,
All he remembers is the children,
He loves and yearns to be with.

The jurors will expect the victim,
To remain emotionally stable and not resist,
When guns are pointed straight at him.
But why does the judge give a pass,
To the cop who becomes triggered,
And shoots the sad dad,
In the back, again and again?

Do they care more for their protection,
Than the life of a second-class citizen?
Or have they always hated the victim,
Because he’s the reason,
Every time a cop messes up,
The public sees the tyranny,
In their black hearts, again and again?

So in the end,
Whomever has the most money and guns,
Gets to make all the rules.
I guess we haven’t progressed much,
Since the dark ages.
So, it’s only a matter of time,
Before the cops are out again,
Counter-protesting!

“The strongest and most effective force in guaranteeing the long-term maintenance of power is not violence in all the forms deployed by the dominant to control the dominated, but consent in all the forms in which the dominated comply, in their own domination.” By: Robert Frost (1874-1963)
