AFTER THEY KIDNAP AND KILL YOU CHILD .....LET ME ASK YOU THIS

The more black children that are beaten, injured and killed the more questions black men ask..

 

"Trayvon wasn't the first apparent victim of vigilantism. Do you think he'll be the last? Is Stand Your Ground a bad idea whose time has come and gone?"

Monroe Anderson

 

Do you think it is right?

What should we do?

Is it fair?

Do we need?

 

Black men feel comfortable and confident to ask questions because America are not beating,…

A Street Corner in Brooklyn

Bruised cigarette butts adorn the ground,

just outside of the corner store.

Newport makes room for Marlboro.   

A carnival of cancer sticks galore.

Corona cerveza bottles lined up like domino’s, waiting to be tipped.

Young unkempt dudes and old flashy broads posted like walls along…

You and I =1

Do you know my longitude as well as you know my latitude?

My gratitude as well as my attitude?

who sings the blues, cause we all must pay our dues.

I use The Bible, Qur'an and internet for clues

cause I choose to hear more than my…

I guess trying to find peace before it decomposes,

in my life, my wife thinks I Am living on the edge and doesn't…
