SORT BY Relevancy
It is the night before the Protest
when all through the city
People were praying
for equality for all
Equal justice for all
no matter the shade of humanity you are
It is the night before the Protest
the air crackles with hope
some live in the pain of yesterday
others live in the hope that is tomorrow
Be people of uniform
or those that have been black and blue
The Majority should never decide for the Minority
The people are
you and I
as the voice of one
Meet me at the Sheriff's office
7 pm on Friday
Protest for Change
Eric Harris was the reason
see you tomorrow
Protest poetry takes on many different forms, yet one aspect remains constant; this style of poetry aims to share a specific message about an issue that is important to the writer. Usually, these poems address social or political issues and are designed to spur dialogue and examination, release creative tension or frustration or in many instances, challenge the status quo on the particular issue or concern. For example, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., led a revolutionary nonviolent protest movement that called upon the nation to end the centuries-old racist and unjust treatment against African-Americans. Poets, before, during and after this era demonstrated through their work the requisite power and much-needed determination to call for long lasting change. More importantly, society still needs poets to draw attention to current and ongoing issues as well as to call the audience to action. So poets, call-in and share poetry or thoughts about issues that matter to you.
Alex Getachew, a noted community activist will join us live to provide commentary and share additional context for the discussion. So please join us for a stimulating evening of great poetry and dialogue!
People who are upset about the government and the systems that control our lives love to convene and complain about it. They even may organize a big rally and make speeches about it. If the cause really becomes popular, they'll get T- shirts, hats, and buttons printed about it. It's great that we know how to whip up sentiments among people and passionately voice our concerns. But these gatherings cost money. Room rental for meetings, sound equipment, chairs. Poster printing, T-shirt, hat and button printing. Bus, van or car rental to drive to the big gathering. Hotel room rental if it's in another city. And of course you have to buy new clothes if it's an out of town conference, you want to look your best. But who's getting paid for all this? People who are already in business, people who own buildings with meeting space, transportation companies, printing factories, hotels, restaurants, clothing stores. Usually the people who are getting paid are not the people protesting the problem. For all the money we spend to gather and talk about the problem, we could be putting together the money to fix the problem. So let's look at the issues we face, the money we spend to complain about it, and the money we could be spending to actually fix the problem.
Say guilty 30 times for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bomber. Next up...execution or life in a federal pen.
And for something completely different, MA Gov. Charlie Baker's Special Panel in Review of the MBTA (Metropolitan Boston Transportation Authority) issued its how-to-fix-the-T report. Next up...Baker to say, "Fund your own damn fixes and for God's sake, don't blame me for my Big Dig financing scheme!"
I chatter about both these.
So far, I"m surprised at the bombing convict response by teh locals.

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.

Police brutality is a very hot topic in the country, as it should be. Because of video, unknown behavior has come to the light. But the black community doesnt react the same when the brutality or murder comes from a person in their community. No protest, no social media postings, no demands for that person to be imprisoned. Can the balck community only attack 1 part of this issue? Can we demand respect from others but not respect each other?
Join us as we discuss violence in the black community!
