Hate has not risen from the depths of hell. It lay latent in man’s soul waiting to rise again with opportunity. Bullets fire in rapid succession targeting those historically oppressed and marginalized. No gun, no bomb, no worries; simply get behind the wheel to enact your fury. Find a bat or a brick and beat somebody or desecrate someone else’s holy site.
What gives you the right? Is it simply that you’re white?
More anti’s than I can count, phobias against anyone with a different religion, skin color or chosen love. The perpetrators of hate think they reign supreme, but hate does not rule. We the People will rise to take back our rights, our sacred sites and our very lives.
What gives you the right? Your history of dominance? Your ability to oppress?
You with your shield, your semi automatic, your slogan hat, your flag of hate that harkens back, you will not prevail. By history you will be listed as a footnote on the wrong side, a dark stain on your country and all of humanity.
Your bygone chants echo the past but with a sour note of desperation, as if you know this may be your final stand.
What gives you the right? Is it because you can stand hoodless in daylight?
Love and tolerance will claim their victory, even if it’s by the blood of the injured and through the tears we shed for the dead. Weary and beleaguered we will still find cause to celebrate, perhaps not today or tomorrow, but now that we have risen together we will see that love conquers hate.
NEVER AGAIN IS NOW
