I remember the riots in CA, city of Angels happened in 1992 about Rodney King. . . . . and now in Baltimore. Watching on CNN the destruction of a city that was already hurting in so many ways.
When will America really start putting race behind us? When will our police departments stop profiling black men? When will our cops stop killing young men for no reason? Is it really the year 2015?
Or have we went back in time to the riots of Watts in 1965?
Or back even further?
When will we, as human beings love each other for what is inside our hearts, instead of the color of our skin?

Darkness falls and you think you have won.
A young man’s spine is snapped
and a squad car explodes.
Public Servants band together
Looters and thieves
overtake peaceful protesters,
but the world is too busy to notice,
a humanitarian crises in Nepal,
another American city burns,
but this time, no one notices.
Darkness falls when a young man is shot dead.
Memories of a child
overwhelmed by supporters of the gunman.
Talking heads take to the air
no calls for calm,
vicious rhetoric instead.
Darkness falls and search for a young friend,
perhaps buried beneath the rubble
