I have been arrested by cops because cops have seen something bad in me.
I didn’t cry although I was almost innocent.
I would certainly not cry if you were caught.
I am not you.
I am not even black.
It is wrong for me to share black injustice when
I am a white sympathizer with your arrest.
I am not you
And you are not me.
I have not earned the right to be in a protest line.
My job is to look for justice in a confusion of accusations.
It is more likely that the cop is innocent than the thug.
And if you burn down my non-existent store I should shoot you.
And if you beat up an innocent bystander I should step on your face.
If you think the world is unfair to you perhaps you are unfair to the world.
Revolution is a failure to fit in with the beauty of the world as it is.
A total of two thousand five hundred blacks hung in all the south.
Six million Jews burned in Germany.
Where is the proportion the protestors fail to show in Charlotte?
