family, i know we all getting ready for the thick of it again.

they will come after us hard.

they will blame
Black Lives Matter
they will blame
Black people.

not matter the identity

they will blame us like they blame Muslims
for Nice
though the man had no connection to Islam
he was Brown
that was enough.

we know the burden of
one person representing
us all
and praying that they look
like something other than us

even though
colonialism
imperialism
white supremacy
capitalism

is the killer.

they will say there is a war
against the police
even though people
are just tired of dying
by their hands.

beware the false equivalency.

holding us all close
while all eyes are on
Baton Rouge. Again.

protect each other yall.

Alton Sterling
you are loved.
