Are we preparing?
Are whites arming for war?
Where can blacks buy guns?
Is non violent protest no longer valid?
Are we cleansed of our grandfather’s sins?
Are we suddenly cleansed of his racism so as to say
I am not a racist,
I have nothing to work on
I feel that all people are equal.
Should I grab you by the shoulder or arm
when I say that?
