Shoot first…too common
Racism alive and well
Rise of the old south
Were it not for video
The Blue Wall would have stood firm

“Like” the poem
“Dislike” the topic
“Despise” the act
“Disparage” our progress toward justice!
Well said my friend and thank you. I wish this was never a topic, but it is one we are seeing far too frequently.
Thank you Kimberly.
In a hidden way it did. Very good!
Thank you Carol, I appreciate it. 🙂
Agreed with sentiment–would add that racism seems to have sprouted up everywhere, not just in the South.
Oh absolutely, it isn’t relegated to the south at all, it just seems that it has been occurring more frequently there lately.
Sadly so, sadly so.
It is sad and lately it seems an all too common occurrence. 😦
