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 guns and cash,
Gets to make all the rules.
I guess we haven’t progressed much,
Since the medieval ages.
So I guess, it’s only a matter of time,
Before the cops are counter-protesting!

“But what should we do?” Listen. You have one—just one—barely working institution left. An election. You know what to do. You know what you should be planning to do right now, with friends, holding each other to account, encouraging others to do, building networks for, igniting, sparking. You have to vote. Like never before. Like your life depends on it. Because it does.
