Poetry and life. But what's the difference?

And all else
Already

   The first picture speared my heart propelling me to spill ink on the persisting racial discrimination in the United States, an issue that has long been on my mind. Perhaps, it is a good coincidence that I can sight a very great example from the shooting and killing of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri and the violent protests that erupted after. His name was Michael Brown and he was shot six times by a white police officer even though he had his hands up.
   I wont speak much about this issue, I believe that the pictures speak louder. Ferguson is a town that has two-thirds of its population as blacks but has a police force that is 90% white. I think this does so much to potray the economic and social marginalization of black people in Ferguson and America at large. Whites get away with little punishments for the same offence that blacks serve lengthy jail terms, Whites are employed for the same job opportunities which had black applicants with higher qualifications, a black man with a prison record is considered almost unemployable but a white man with the same record is still considered, blacks often find it difficult to get justice when the offender is white… and the list goes on and on. Truth be told, the United States is far from being ‘the land of the’ that it claims to be; unless of course that is to say blacks are not free, still. Racial discrimination and equality still thrive but many don’t want to talk about it…what we should realize is that not talking about it wouldn’t make it go away.
       Here are pictures of the black community in Ferguson protesting the murder of an unarmed black teen boy, shot by a white police officer. They are desperately seeking justice, which they are afraid might elude them.

A woman was sitting on a bench in the mall just outside a Victoria’s Secret breast feeding. Regardless of her being fully covered while doing so she was approached by mall security. The security asked her to either stop or leave. Behind the woman in the window of the store was a huge poster ad of a model dressed in a rather revealing lingerie bra. It appeared security failed to notice that. Lest we get the wrong impression of what breast are for..

"No movement can survive unless it is constantly growing and changing with the times. If it isn’t growing, it’s stagnant, and without the support of the people, no movement for liberation can exist, no matter how correct it’s analysis of the situation is. That’s why political work and organizing are so important. Unless you are addressing the issues people are concerned about and contributing positive direction, they’ll never support you. The first thing the enemy tries to do is isolate revolutionaries from the masses of people, making us horrible and hideous monsters so that our people will hate us.All we usually hear about are the so-called responsible leaders, the ones who are “responsible” to our oppressors. In the same way that we don’t hear about a fraction of the Black men and women who have struggled hard and tirelessly throughout our history, we don’t hear about our heroes of today.The schools we go to are reflections of the society that created them. Nobody is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them. Nobody is going to teach you your true history, teach you your true heroes, if they know that that knowledge will help set you free. Schools in amerika are interested in brainwashing people with amerikanism, giving them a little bit of education, and training them in skills needed to fill the positions the capitalist system requires. As long as we expect amerika’s schools to educate us, we will remain ignorant.” | Assata Shakur

Live as the majestic elephant in the forest; care-free, doing no evil. Your natural pulse

Blissbound

Baking, browning, brewing,
Sizzling steaming stews,
A toast topped with soul tapping tunes
I bask in the blissful collision

Running away from pain
When you’ve been victimisedg

Downtown Train

I hope I don’t see you again
On the downtown train
The thought reeks much pain
On the downtown train

My eight year old daughter was killed My three year old son
My daughter died right here
She was feeding the pigs
She was so sweet
She is dead
The pigs are alive

I wish to sit on a rooftop with someone at 2 AM in the morning stargazing

I often feel our maker(s), whomever that may be, is as we are during the course of a movie: spectating, flinching and cringing. Shouting out ‘watch out’ at the actors. The us. Yet unable to do a thing, unable to attain further involvement. Until one day he/she grows tired of the show, bored, and hits that power button from utter lack of interest. Lights out…Surely I am not alone in this thought provocation of simple minded delusions. Mjr.Korin
