A muttered Change

Robbed of my dignity
Thought the dying man
As the ethers and his life
Slowly receded to the dark
Of night
"Life is a tale told by an Idiot "
The bard once said
But only fools consider any life
Meaningless
Life is a challenge
Life is disappointment
Life is hope
Life is change
And yet many tears
I weep for the young
Yet to see that change
For one so young and vibrant
Eyes looking at the Sea
To die because your colour
Is black
Sorrow yet to be unseen
To die because some saw a lack
In your humanity
To die because of your interest
In a woman not of your pigmentation?
Nowhere does Wisdom rules
Chaos rules the Children of Babel
Rest young King
Folly rules you no More

𓂀⁷ - I saw this in BK the other day. I remember when this happened too. 90s ish! It's gross how now 20+ yrs later and in less then 24 hours after seeing this mural a similar story repeats itself overseas in Greece. .

Sending love to the family of #BakariHenderson. Go to @Complex for the full story. 😑✊🏿 .

Repost @jamescbgray "On this day August 23 in the year 1989 Yusef Hawkins (also spelled as Yusuf Hawkins), a 16-year-old African American was shot to death in Bensonhurst, a predominantly white working-class neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Hawkins and three friends were attacked by a crowd of 10 to 30 white youths, with at least seven of them wielding baseball bats. One, armed with a handgun, shot Hawkins twice in the chest, killing him...
Hawkins had gone to Bensonhurst that night with three friends to inquire about a used 1982 Pontiac automobile that was for sale. The group's attackers had been lying in wait for either black or Hispanic youths they believed were dating a neighborhood girl. Innocently, the victim, Mr. Hawkins, and his friends, walked onto the ambushers' block. After the murder of Mr. Hawkins, police said that he was not in any way involved with the neighborhood girl whose honor the killers were, wrong-mindedly, protecting.
Hawkins' death was the third killing of a black man by white mobs in New York City during the 1980s; the other two victims were Willie Turks, who was killed on June 22, 1982 in Brooklyn, and Michael Griffith, who was killed in Queens on December 20, 1986. The incident uncorked a torrent of racial tension in New York City in the ensuing days and weeks, culminating in a protest march through the neighborhood led by the Reverend Al Sharpton." #YusefHawkins #NeverForget #NoJusticeNoPeace #IWasTwo #BeforeNAN

It's sad that the first thing my mind went to when I heard this story was Emmett Till. #whatyearisthisagain #ripbakarihenderson

This angers me on so many levels! Bakari only put his beer on the wrong table & got beaten to death for it! Where were his "friends" during all this? What makes me angrier is to find out a bar worker and one of the security for the bar took part in punching and kicking this young man in the street. Then left him there to die!😑😑

It is funny I cannot sleep and I was interacting with my cousin who lives in South Korea and he tells me about this story that happened closer to where I am than where he is. A 22 year old black killed by several patrons of a bar for wanting to take a picture with a white waitress . It is funny how that change is never ushered and we are all still blind. I have hurt my leg this week and i was unable to walk for two days but I realize I have no reasons to complain. Rest in Power young King#ripbakarihenderson
