“why are they destroying their town?”
…and that is a very good question to ask.
well yesterday i was turnt.
i was angry.
now that i’ve calmed down,
i can see why they were burnin’ ferguson to the ground.
i had to wonder…
Was it right?…
we are taught to “have peace”.
we are also taught to “pray and things will work out”.
when trayvon martin’s verdict was read,
everyone handled it with “peace” i felt.
when people were stuck in the superdome down in new orleans,
we also “prayed things would work out”.
well this is act “we lost count”.
this time another black cub is killed like a wild animal in the street.
the verdict is one of another injustice played out to the media.
like trayvon’s parents,
and watching the aftermath of hurricane katrina played out on tv,
we now have to watch the sadness of michael brown’s mother.
i guess people were fed up this go around.
“no justice; no peace”?
so they burned shit up,
tore down stores,
and didn’t “keep the peace”.
do we blame them?
or is okay to point fingers when we aren’t effected by it?
now with every riot does come it share of dumb asses:
“shit this is the perfect time to get a free tv!”
“girl lets break in the hair sto’ so i can get a few packs!”
…and those are the ones who stand for nothing.
please let us not forget how the snow animals do.
…but when we do it,
suddenly the world is coming to an end?
i’m sorry this isn’t some football or baseball team who lost the championship.
i do see both sides tho.
i do see where the destruction is “setting people back”.
once the dust settles,
a majority of them still have to live there.
some of those places probably won’t even be rebuilt again.
many will starve.
others will move and start anew.
with all this rioting or “lets handle it with peace”,
the outcome is still pretty the same…
Is anyone really listening?
this is not an entry to say white people are bad,
but if we gonna call the blacks out for their foolishness,
lets call EVERYONE out on their shit.
this is as objective as i can be with this situation.
