What the Heck is Going On?Can Things Get Any Worse?I AM SO DANG MAD, Good Thing I Don’t Curse! 

Black Youth Are Dying,Black Parents Are Enraged!From Slavery to Now,It’s Just a Different Stage! 

America the Beautiful,We Made It Great!OUR Blood, Sweat, and Tears,So, Let’s Get That Straight! 

Make It Great Again,What Does That Even Mean?Lady Justice, Maybe A Lady,But Clear Justice Sure Ain’t Clean! 

She’s America’s Epitome of Fairness,Carries a Scale and a Sword.We Don’t Want to Admit It,For some, Justice is ONLY a Word. 

She Wears a Blindfold,But I Know She Can See.She Seems Systematically Biased,In America, Ain’t I Free? 

A Black Man Takes A Knee,As a Protest During a Song.His Future and Career Get Wrecked,Isn’t That a Little Wrong?!

 Fifty Years Before,Two Men Stood Tall with Raised Fists.The Olympics Were Forever Changed,Unfortunately, They Got Dismissed!

 How Many Times Have Some Cried Wolf?Stating That a Black Man Did a Deed.10 Years, 20 Years, or Dealing with Death,He Never Did It and Should’ve Been Freed.

 Trayvon, Garner, Brown, and Gray,Just to Name a Few.Now Floyd, Ahmaud, and even Ms. Bland,Emmett Till, Knew This Too. 

Look, Everyone Makes Mistakes,We Just Want a Fairness of Complexion.Lady Justice Please Stand Up,And Give Us ALL the Same Protection. 

From the White House to the Poor House, Insensitivity Has Had a Rededication.Deceit and Racist Rhetoric,Will Never Build a Nation.

  1. This does Not look like the original lay out. Why isn’t the writer picture next to the poem? 🤔🤔🤔 smh

  2. I know this writer/poet. It’s a shame that the poem was not published so that it looks like a poem. The presentation style takes away from the purpose. It should have the title and author, then each stanza.
    Best Wishes

  3. First of all seeing this has left me feeling disappointed and angry because all I see is another African American male being stepped on. Why is that large picture of someone that is clearly not the author of this poem being displayed? and why is the poem not printed in it’s original layout? If both of those things weren’t possible then it should not have been printed. This is a powerful poem but it’s power was lost because it was written as a blog. I have know the writer for several years and I know there is no way he would approve this before it was printed.
    We’re fighting for black lives but here you’re tearing down a black man. This need to be reprinted in the original form and if there needs to be a face then it should be the face of the author.
