Ferguson and Facebook- being Black in America

So, this morning my son liked my facebook posting and
last night my daughter gave me made evil side eye and
it makes me want to cry.
I think of Micheal Brown’s parents and I want to cry.
The simple act of getting an email, complaint that wont happen anymore,
because of the awful crimes committed.
walking in the street,
eating Skittles,
loud music,
having a car wreck,
getting lost,
things that are not supposed to bring a
child’s life to an end.
I live in a country that demands
my allegiance and fidelity and
children who look like my children aren’t safe to be children because of the
country’s policy and history toward people who look like me.
