As we sat in the car
in the midst of evening rush hour
we spoke of the riots going on downtown
"Yeah I'm glad the blacks are protesting,
peaceful or not, they should let out their anger."
Institutional racism is a thing.
The movement so powerful, complex.
Anger ignited from unsettlements, confusion, unknown reasons
Perepuating more anger, and racism.
Maybe one day, years from now
We could say we made it,
through all the oppression, repression and silent deadly consent.
Looting is the only thing that brought mass media coverage to
Baltimore city, but it also brought awareness.
And maybe one day we could realize that equality is the root of all good,
and that white supremacy though inheritly evil, can teach us compassion
and the ability to see eye to eye, respect and appreciation of a diversity.
