Inherent Sickness

Wait, what did 45 just say? I heard it on the news just the other day. Did he compare his impeachment inquiry to lynching? Boy he must be trippin! How dare you compare your lying, cheating and stealing with black lives that were stolen, lied on and cheated outta living.

Let me go head and settle the score, I’ll ask Trayvon…oh wait, he never made it back from the store. Maybe I can ask Tamir Rice what he thinks. Wait a minute hold up, life snuffed out in a wink…something in Denmark definitely stinks!

Maybe we can talk to Eric as we bum a cigarette. What the hell is wrong with me, how can I forget? He was killed with a choke hold without breaking a sweat.

Perhaps Sandra Bland, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, can help me reach this conclusion, they’ll keep it real…help me end this confusion. But there’s not one of them that I can talk to, for their lives were taken too soon too. How will I find the answers, well let’s look at the clues.  It seems when push comes to shove, it’s black lives that we lose!

So what in the world is this crazy lunatic saying, he must be playing! Let’s study the pics again of Emmitt Till. The way that he was killed was totally unreal! The names of our people who lives have been taken, denied any appeal, it’s completely surreal, no matter how much denial they’re in…this cannot be concealed. My lips you can’t seal….just keeping it real!
