“If Tamir was named Andy from the Hamptons” a poem by Eric King

 

ferguson-protest-oakland

Every breath is an air of defiance

sparks flying I breathe fire

What happened in the Lorraine

happened in Ferguson & Batton Rouge

Police keeping cities safe

passing out freedom bullets

Black bodies not regarded as anything

more than click-bait and hot topics

If Tamir was named Andy

from the Hamptons

maybe it’d make a fucking difference?!

This isn’t gang violence, its state violence

its race violence, it shouldn’t exist but

so often does happen without outrage

from the privileged to well off

to be outspoken

This isn’t new it’s just finally on the news

cause people took to the streets

& when told to disperse they refused

So painful but its true

Blue Lives Murder
