5.29.20 – Thy Whiter Jubilee!

O’ beautiful for dark gray skies,
For bloody clothes are stained,
From the climb upon the mountaintop
Above the amber waves of grain!
America! America!
We see and finally see
Ye unsheathe your sword with quickened haste,
To hate those that do not look like me.

What’s happening across the country, and especially in Minneapolis, should be alarming to everyone. There is no reason George Floyd or Breonna Taylor or any of the many other Black lives should be dead right now.
