The absence of Joy, void of contentment when feelings only feel loss, and ideas are absorbed in delusion.

It speaks in monosyllables, if at all, in the tone of E-flat, neither screeching or beseeching, bleaching anguish from a wound discovered from the inside-out.

Inside-out, outside bombarbed by racist radiation enveloping one’s being in a bubble of white ambivalence, pushing the envelope to a point of irrelevance when what matters does not matter.

Black Lives Matter! Our Collective Humanity Matters!

Solitary confinement, an antiseptic whitewashed reality caused by the imposition of nullification as people of color are relegated to a Prison Nation.

Denied purpose Denied reason Denied hope Denied JUSTICE.

The hypocrisy of democracy We Will Not Be Denied! We proclaim No Justice No Peace! That’s No Lie!

Part Two:

Living Black in a white world but taught to not be racist, contradictions of a paradox wrapped in an enigma the mystery lost in history not taught why the first is now last.

Not racist but pro-Black not Anti-Israel but pro-Palestine liberation (they too are semitic) building a future for the poor when the rich want more, the poor loving freedom like the rich love their billions.

Reconciliation through Revolution???

Part Three:

Anti-Capitalist, Anti-Imperialist, Anti-Exploitation, Anti-Racism, Anti-Hegemony, Anti-Class Divisions, Anti-Colonialism, Anti-Oppression, Anti-Repression, Anti-Sexism, Anti-Chauvinism, Anti-Plutocracy …

These are progenitors of PAIN!!!

Now labeled as Anti-American?
