“When we focus on Mike Brown, they tell us he was a bad dude. He shoulda done this. He shouldn’t have done that. Why didn’t he do this? Why didn’t he do that?
When we focus on Darren Wilson, they print t-shirts and start a fundraiser.
When we focus on justice, they tell us to calm down, be patient, and let the system do its thing. Let due process run its course. Let public officials do their jobs.
When we focus on the system, they tell us to stop whining and complaining. They tell us that slavery was 200 years ago; that Jim Crow is ancient history; that mass imprisonment is our own fault.
They got an answer for everything… Yet they have no answers.”
