i was trying to avoid this michael brown situation.
i really was.
not that i didn’t want to get involved,
but as much as i did with trayvon martin,
i was completely drained.
another promising black boy murdered in cold blood by the police.
well my world stopped when i saw michael brown’s autopsy today.
“the bullet went through his eye”.
i damn near busted out in tears.
bad enough i saw the photos of him laying dead in the street.
like wtf is really going on in the united states?….
its no surprise that the police hate black people.
black men especially.
we are “thugs”,
we are good enough to copy,
but still something to be “scared of”.
we dressed in a suit,
going to work everyday,
and we still getting stopped and frisked.
sistas are either labelled loud mouth ghetto hoodrats or prostitutes.
don’t even get me started on being black and gay.
you just a non factor.
new yawk cops are no joke.
they want to start shit with you for absolutely no reason.
after all these recent killings,
i decided to just cut my regular tude and do whatever they say.
it’s seriously not in my schedule to get shot because i rolled my eyes.
the way how michael brown was killed was absolutely senseless.
he wasn’t armed
didn’t put up a fight
was scared after the officer basically harassed him
put his hands up in the air to surrender.
so why shoot him the way he did?
it really puzzles me as to why he deserved that fate.
being a black male these days is grounds for termination.
a white male could do the same shit and be let off with a warning.
hell what happened to that jackal who shot up the theater?
oh the police just kill our asses because they were “in fear for their lives”.
well what about us???
my thing with michael brown is what will be done?
how will we handle it this time?
continue blowing up the town of ferguson?
we do that when shit hits the fan.
it often leads to a killer getting off scotch free.
we need to realize that we only come together when shit happens.
we only start fighting back when one of “us” gets killed.
we don’t support each other when nothing is going on.
well we support the trap of pitting us against each other.
so we will always have this:
something for the history books for the future to study
two promising black boys in the grave
lowkey: i keep asking myself ( x if the police gunned me down ),
for absolutely no reason,
how would i be portrayed on the news?
something to think about.
you should think about it as well.
