POEM: Progress?


My feelings about the flag coming down in SC & Alabama are the same as my feelings about the legalization of gay marriage:
I'm wondering why I'm not getting any comments from my right-wing friends about his past issues with the law and drug dealing?
Hmmm...



A nice gesture and distractions from the more pressing issues surrounding race relations and homophobia in America.

We've been under the thumb so long, that the smallest victories are seen as huge. Kinda like the excitement my formerly incarcerated colleagues felt when they could buy Ramen Noodles and Slim Jims from the canteen.


So, about Dylan Roof...
I'm wondering why I'm not getting any comments from my right-wing friends about his past issues with the law and drug dealing?

I'm not hearing how he deserves to die because he smoked weed and got in trouble in school.
I'm not hearing outrage that he murdered innocent people engaged in bible study, from the Bible thumpers...

However, I have heard that it was their own fault for not having guns of their own at the time of the shooting...
