When Is The Right Time For Black People To Protest (Money, Problems, and Answers)

In life, three truths persistently persist,
Money consistently bares weight,
Problems seek resistance,
And Answers; well,
Seem non-existent,

Take into consideration,
One question most White people can’t answer,
Won’t answer or are afraid to Answer,
And if White people answer,
Variables such as;

‘Non-violence’, ‘March’, ‘Dr. King’,
‘UnPatriotic’, ‘UnAmerican’, ‘Uprising’,

Are used…

Black people are told taking a knee during a racist/sexist anthem,
Is a grave sign of disrespect towards our flag and military personnel,
To be honest, I never understood this accusation,
Don’t soldiers knee at a comrades grave,
As a sign of respect?

How can someone disrespect a flag?
Isn’t a flag just a piece of cloth?
It can’t feel, touch, smell, or taste,
How come we treat the American flag as a 1st Class citizen,
And when it comes to Black people,
We keep them in chains and/or behind metal bars,

In life, three truths persistently persist,
Money consistently bares weight,
Problems seek resistance,
And Answers; well,
Seem non-existent,

We call a dog [man’s best friend],
Walk them several times a day,
Feed them nutritious food,
Make sure they have enough water,

When it came to the Black Community,
We introduced drugs,
Killed revolutionary leaders,
Continue to murder fathers, mothers, and children,
Place young men and women in Special Ed classes,

How should Black people protest?
When is the right time?
Turn the other cheek serves only the oppressor,
Can’t kneel, Can’t carry, Can’t breathe,

In life, three truths persistently persist,
Money consistently bares weight,
Problems seek resistance,
And Answers; well,
Seem non-existent,
