Kyle Rittenhouse

A stupid little shit drives up from Illinois.
He has a gun. He's keen to strut the streets
Beside the cops, to threaten demonstrators.
Two of them come after him. They want him
And his gun to go, but, in the end, he shoots
Them dead, and guess what? Little shits
With guns go free, the white ones, anyway,
The ones who value property above some
Dark-skinned person's life. We haven't strayed
Too far from shackles, slave ships, cotton
And plantations. I suspect we never will.
I'm sure that shit agrees.

Got me thinking on how the justice system is supposed to manage the criminal elements of our societies, but at the same time, it often produces such criminal results. It's so frustrating 'cause these blatantly wrong results embolden the warped mentalities in their perceptions they're right. You're completely spot on in what you point out on the whole in this... and no doubt about it, there's no way a Black kid could have done something like that and walked away alive from it. Anyone who disputes this fact is living in la la land, I think. Excellent writing, comme toujours - thanks.
