What It’s Like

Article 1, Section 2, Paragraph 3, of the United States Constitution, reads, and to this day:

“Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this cryUnion, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons . . . three fifths of all other Persons.”

That is all you need to know.

That is all you need to know about Michael Brown, Darren Wilson, Ferguson, the grand jury, any of all of any of all of any of all of any of all that shit.

Michael Brown, black: right there in the United States Constitution, is 3/5th of a person.

Darren Wilson, white: right there in the United States Constitution, is 5/5th of a person.

The white Wilson man can thereby blow the Brown black man’s skull off.

And, all and every, in these United States, shall, by the very terms of the document that founded and governs still this nation, call it just.

The 5/5ths. Always. With the right. To Thanatos fuck. Unto death. The 3/5ths.

The 3/5ths, they with their skulls blown off, blown off over and over, blown off over and over for 500 fucking years, they owe nothing—do you understand?—to this nation.

They can, if they wish, “vote.”

They can, also, if they wish, burn the motherfucker down.

Wanna judge? Then get you some black skin.

Without that:

Shut. Your. Goddam. Mouth.


. . . . you . . . don’t . . . know . . . what . . . it’s like . . . .

      It’s just so discouraging.

      Some 64% of the white people say the grand jury was right not to indict Wilson.

      I hear a lot of foolish talk that the “millennials” are going to be the new Great White Wonder: no: the white boy millennials voted in 2012 for Captain Underpants. So: same as it ever was. Already. Even before they died and got old.

      Quite simply, the white people have got to go.

      What must be done is what was the wisdom of Bulworth, when the soon-to-be-assassinated loose-cannon would-be presidential candidate was asked how best to erase racism in this country, and he replied “just keep fucking each other,” and across all racial divides. Until all the colors bleed into one. Until there are no more white people. Until all and every is fine right smooth saucy brown. Only then, only then, will the “white people” ever get it. Until then: ain’t no way.

    “you must write of this, you know.”

    when we watched on television the canonization of Darren Wilson for the crime of murdering, then demonizing Michael Brown.

    when we waited that dark evening, you and i, hoping for the best but ready and waiting for the worst and you were there and we talked all through the night and i said, “Blue, you must write of this. Eventually, you must.”

    gracias, mi amorcito.

    Dear White People:

    When there are riots, they are not “against YOU.” Show me one black people who ever demonstrated or fought back, hopeless or infuriated, because YOU, the White People, are still err, White People.

    We fight THE SYSTEM that creates and enables injustice and brutality and killing of our children. We fight THE HATRED that is institutional racism.

    Just check your privilege and whitesplainin at the door because this is, sit down, White People, eons much bigger than any one person, even a 5/5.

    And I think you fives ought to listen while a ten is talking. 😉
