MY BLACK BODY

Compliance won’t stop it.

Omnipresent media won’t stop it.

Indictments won’t stop it.

Why? Because there is a war on Black people in America. Listen, I’m fairly educated, a decent Christian and a seemingly good family man and my life can be exterminated by the police… and I don’t sell loose squares, pedal bootleg CDs, raise my voice when asked to step out of the car by police, nor do I play with toy guns. Despite my ability to comply and live out this “American Dream” there is a war going on for my black body.
