america

white
he massacred 9 people
they took him alive
they gave him a bullet-proof vest
they call him fresh-faced

black
he sold cigarettes
he owed child support
he was an ‘animal’
he was a kid

they choked him to death
they shot him in the back
they shot him all over
they shot him on a play ground
this list is incomplete & endless
