Freddie Gray has joined the ranks
of those killed by the slave patrol.
His nightmare finally ended
in this here racist ass shithole.
The list just keeps on growing.
When will it ever stop?
One by one, we die,
while the whites, they dine and shop.
Oh, there’s a baseball game in progress.
This is inconveniencing me.
So what? A Black man’s dead!
I’ve got a game to see!
Just dump him in a ditch.
He’s Black, don’t you know.
No one will care at all.
Dead Blacks don’t stop no show!
Go protest somewhere else.
There are things I want to do.
I don’t care if his spine was severed.
Why should that matter to you?
Blacks are not even human.
Just ask the ‘founding fathers’.
They bred them just like cattle
That’s why they wore slave collars.
Freddie Gray won’t need his again.
He’s been effectively neutralized.
I have no need to join a protest
over what’s been dehumanized.
I didn’t make the rules of the game.
But I will follow them to the letter.
Freddie Gray to me was a thing.
A dead Black man, all the better.

The time before the last time before the time before that, I said, “We will see this again and again and we will protest and we will march and I gave it a month. I don’t even think that much time passed before another, “Here we go again!”, moment takes place!
I have been reading the reports from every source that I can find and for some strange reason, I cannot find out why Freddie Gray was chased in the first goddamn place? This man was treated worse than a dead deer; tossed into the back of a police van and carted off as if he was another hunter’s trophy and in all actuality, he was! Another notch on the belt of the racist patrols that gun down, choke, shoot or sever spines of Black people. And the citizens of Baltimore have taken to the streets just like the citizens of Ferguson, MO and the citizens of Beavercreek, Oh, and the citizens of Cleveland, OH and the citizens of New York, NY and the citizens of insert yet another city here->___.
So, let us continue to march with our signs and seek justice from the shits that are hell bent on killing us. It has been working SO well thus far, hasn’t it? And Obama had this to say, “Move along! Nothing to see here folks! Let’s ALL have a beer! He should be glad he didn’t get ‘friendly’ drone struck!” Yeah, he’s ALL heart, he is, that lying piece of hypocritical filthy ass shit!
…to be continued…..
Officials have declined to provide 911 call recordings related to Gray’s arrest or injury, citing the open investigation, and police have declined to provide dispatch recordings that would contain any conversations between officers and dispatchers while Gray was in custody. The timeline for when and where the van stopped remains incomplete, and no time has been provided for the van’s last stop, back on North Avenue for another pickup before its arrival at the Western District police station.
When Gray was taken out of the van, Rodriguez said, “he could not talk and he could not breathe.”
Beyond damage to his spinal cord, Gray had a crushed voice box.
At 9:24 a.m., officers called a medic to the Western District station, reporting that Gray was in “serious medical distress.”
Paramedics responded, spent 21 minutes treating Gray at the station, and arrived at Maryland Shock Trauma Center — where Gray would fall into a coma and die a week later — at 10 a.m.
Black folks, keep expecting whites to ‘feel’ your pain! They won’t because they are not even human! You better act like you know! This shit ain’t playing with you! Marching and waving signs around ain’t doing you a goddamn bit of good and you can’t understand that by now? What the fuck?
As the breakaway group reached Camden Yards, where the Baltimore Orioles were scheduled to play the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night, they were met by police officers in riot gear. There were reports of damage to some cars parked at the baseball stadium.
As protesters blocked the corner of Pratt and Light Streets, a major downtown intersection, the Baltimore Police Department urged demonstrators to remain peaceful. Its Twitter feed reported “isolated pockets of people from out of town causing disturbances downtown.”
Black folks, remember, you can NOT disrupt traffic for the white motherfuckers trying to reach Camden Yards to see the Orioles and the Red Sox because a dead Black man don’t mean shit to them! Never fucking think it! And don’t forget to look real closely at the picture of Freddie Gray! He was the goddamn big and scary Black man weighing in at a whopping 145 pounds! Oh! And he had a switchblade, so they say! Yeah! Uh huh!
