I don't stand.
I don't stand stand for that.
The "Pledge of Alegience."
No, I don't.
Now, before you go on
about how I am just "ignorant"
I want to state some of the words we all know:
"With Liberty and Justice for all."
with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL.
These exact words,
Written in 1892 by a White Baptist Minister
With the IGNORANCE of the America around him.
Take a look at Ms. Lady Liberty.
1893. Texas. Henry Smith.
a Black Man.
Accused of raping a young girl.
Tied to a chair and presented around town with a sign that said:
They had time to write "JUSTICE" on him.
But not the time to write "JUSTICE" in a JUSTIFIED trial
With a JUSTIFIED person called a JUDGE.
And other black men alike:
lynched in the 1890's
Average 187 per year
Two a week.
That were forced to not stand.
So I don't stand.
No, not because I am "ignorant."
No, because the words of the Pledge are "ignorant."
Ignorant of the hundreds of men and women who were killed under
"JUSITICE and LIBERTY. "
No I will not stand
for every man who's JUSTICE and LIBERTY were taken away
under the direct words of "with Liberty and Justice for all."
