9 Down, Flag Down
by Myron E. Edwards, Sr. (6-23-15)

Here we go again, another racist attack where black Americans don't defend. Don't defend even our own lives, knowing that we are about to die! Has the message/movement of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s non violent approach pacified us so much that we don't even seek to run while watching a fool blast his gun? Look what civil rights area has done!

Now there's 9 down—when they watched the fool reload and blast off more rounds. Do we just wait our turn like a good little nigger, as this fool continues to line us up & pull the trigger? We have been pacified so much that our rational lacks common sense—fight or flight, even an animal would have adopted that defense! Why didn't no one seek to run to any of the exist? We just sat & watched... knowing that we are next on some racist fool's shit list.

Yeah, now there's 9 down, but this is the price we pay to have them finally take the Confederate flag down... something like that NAACP compromised with them not to do it anyway 15 years ago. Check into it, it's true! Our voices are only heard & honored when our blood is shed. Must the streets of our communities turn red?! Or maybe we'll continue to march on sore feet, with hoarse voices—we act like fighting back is not one of our choices. Aren't you tired of begging racism to stop being racist? Hell, this doesn't make any sense!

Even with 9 down, the state of Wisconsin's governor is holding true, saying that the Confederate flag is a state's right issue, not to be confused with a political agenda. Is not a flag the epitome of politics? Or maybe this just an euphemism for Governor Scott Walker to say, "Niggers, you don't count in this day." Oh yeah, has anybody heard from Kayne!?
