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,

“But white solidarity almost always prevailed. Townspeople closed ranks to protect their own kind, thereby becoming partners in the crimes committed. Eyewitnesses refused to testify, and grand juries refused to bring indictments against easily identifiable mob participants; even if they had, juries would have refused to convict, whatever the evidence.” Excerpt from White Victimology: Trump’s “Lynching” Comments Are a Reminder of the Relationship Between His Lawlessness and White Supremacy
Conservatism consists of exactly one proposition, to wit: There must be in-groups whom the law protects but does not bind, alongside out-groups whom the law binds but does not protect. The law cannot protect anyone unless it binds everyone; and it cannot bind anyone unless it protects everyone. Excerpt from Conservatism and Who the Law Protects
“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)
The Lord God says: “In the day that I cleanse you from all your offenses, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places to be rebuilt. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” Bible, Ezekiel 36:26,33
