For the land of the free, there sure is a lot of bondage and incarceration imbalance.
You can only go to jail if you're not a straight, conservative, wealthy, white male.
Sure is a lot of segregated qualifications to achieve the "American Dream."
Sure is a lot of oppression toward those whose ancestors were in bondage.
Hate crimes on racial minorities.
The struggle for LGBT+ rights.
Islamophobia and Xenophobia.
Sexism and workplace discrimination.
All the rights that were fought for.
All the lives that were lost or
Changed forever due to injury
Sure is a lot of that floating around in these "United" States of America.
How is this the land of the free if we had to fight a civil war to abolish slavery.

Bombs over Baghdad...
Congratulations to the Captains
