#BlackLivesMatter

All lives DO NOT matter, until Black lives matter too.

Did you know that a report was written by a commission put together by President LBJ to determine the cause of riots? ANSWER: I didn’t either.

Read this article from the Smithsonian about it. Weep for our country, that we prefer White Supremacy laden rules rather than equality.

Really.. read the article. Written in the late 1960’s.

Awareness causes discomfort. Lean into it. Do the work. Buy the book that Myisha T Hill Co-authored.

My Take – The Weekly Hilarity Contest 5/23 – 5/29/2020

Oh Chelsea, must you go? Yes! We all need breaks! I look forward to when you are back. So for the last in a while, I will endeavor to write the worst poem ever! ( I know nothing of hitchhiking or petunias.)

*

Roses are black, I mean petunias
Because they lack, attendance at funerals

Hey! There’s a hitchhiker holding petunias
Is he going to a funeral?

The end (of someone)
