SOCIAL JUSTICE

Georgia On My Mind

I can tell ya’ll right now that I’m not feeling too peachy; another unarmed Black man has been struck down…don’t know if you can reach me. Why in the world has this happened again, the senseless disregard of another Black man?

Since when do burglars jog in the middle of the street, a daily routine to complete; strengthening his mind and body by using his feet. But who could’ve known that this particular run…would end in defeat?

As the list continues to grow of all the black men that we’ve come to know, tell me how do y’all think this will go? We always want justice but the answer’s always NO! Lady Justice, can you hear THIS family’s cries, just let us know, cuz these inhumane acts; they really tear at our soul.

I wonder how it would feel if we told “them” to their face, that they are nothing and less than because of their race? If they could just get a taste of a superior complex from a different race, would their hatred for us leave without trace…I think I need some space because the imagine of Ahmaud being gunned down…cannot be erased.

You think that you’ll fool us with an arrest? Well, I’m putting you to the test. I would love to see you pass but I’m sure you’ll fail because you refuse to take responsibility…for this vicious brutality.

Georgia, Georgia…I’ve got you on my mind and I’m hoping that it’s peace you can help me find because he didn’t deserve to die like that and by the way, I think that a “stand your ground” defense would be real whack. We don’t need your lies because we know the facts. He looked like any Black man involved in whatever you find him guilty of, just think about Trayvon, I’m sure he knows what I’m speaking of.
