The Dross of Slavery | Thoughts on McKinney Texas Pool Party


The dross of slavery

boils today

in the cellular memory

of its putrid legacy.

Shape shifting from bad cops

to intuitional racism

and prejudice

often portrayed as ignorance.

It is alive and sick

in veins, arteries and capillaries

of alabastered ones.

Seeking revenge of a peoples’ resilience

to defy all the odds against them

to survive and proclaim loudly,

“Started from the bottom

now we’re here!”

About artikleblak

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
