Even though John Crawford III was only holding a BB gun he picked up—IN A STORE THAT SELLS BB GUNS. Even though it was an open carry state. Even though he was on the phone when police officers opened fire on him. Even though he was shot in the back. Even though the cops lied and were caught in a lie because of the subsequent video. A grand jury who, when added together, obviously didn’t have half a gnat’s brain, declined to indict the officers.  The message here?  It has been, is, and always will be open season on black people for as long as white supremacy is the philosophie du jour.

I met her in college, 18 and not looking. I wasn’t one to chomp at the bit, so I kept my distance. Somehow I landed her and she got me at the worst of times. I learned to love her the way she should have always been and she will always be that girl that goes to my school, School Daze.

Real Talk…

I don’t cry typically, but the way black America is treated in America is fucked up and it hurts. It hurts and it hurts deep.
