Spoken Word Poetry of the week – Javon Johnson, ‘cuz he’s black

Standard

Because for some hateful reason this still is relevant, and it feels like it will always be relevant – we are still shooting first, covering our backs later, treating skin colour as a reason to see citizens as something other than equal. Is it any wonder we are all tarnished with the same brush of being racist, or xenophobic, when all we ever see is repeat after repeat of what happened to Alton Sterling, and all we ever hear is the justifications that mean these murderers will get away with this yet again?

Because #BlackLivesMatter.
