Subject: rebuilding -new communities from the heart of the south-
To: studiob@foxnews.com
Although things have changed allot in the south compared to days of daily whippings, beatings, treating black people as animals w/ out souls and, basically, no human rights -- unlike the whites -- Yeah, things have changed since the control of fascist, racists dictating the way a black man, woman or child should live - be separated, segregated - lynched by a mob of white folks.
Allot of dirty blood still stained the streets and plantations and back woods of the deep, coastal south - which ports brought in stolen bodies - and which plantations harvested slaves. Blood stained streets and grounds from whippings and beatings - rapes and murders.
Maybe by the grace of mother nature - this dirty blood will be no more - And the heart of the south will have a cleansed blood running through its veins like the rivers of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama - cleansing the streets and grounds and hearts of southern communities -
So a new, better, emerging communities can flourish w/ fairness all over the south - w/ no prejudices or hatred for one another of black and white races -
Bedroom eyes
white/African lies
Stolen bodies of day
thrusted into a ship of fear
smelling premonitions of death
filtering through the salt sea air
In This Place: A Book of the Nineties
