Soooo...no skittles- a poem by many

this is a crowd-sourced poem form the Ferguson Moment facebook group


Soooo...no skittles, no hoodies, no loud rap, no whistling, nocking on doors for help, no asking cops for help post an auto accident, no saying no to advances,no standing your own ground, no selling loosies, no... AND NOW I can't even eat a sandwich??? If you're Black apparently these all warrant DEATH.

no running, no shopping, no ticket, no mental health diagnosis

no justice! no peace!

"no angel"

No admitting the problem today, no fixing it by tomorrow!

No justice no peace!

no innocent until proven guilty

no justice no peace!

no common ground? NO! COMMON GROUND!

no justice no peace!

no smashing pumpkins. no throwing pumpkins. no holding pumpkins. no pumpkins!

no murals!

No stopping, keep walking

no selling loosies

no sitting on benches

no breathing

no entering your home

no fighting back

carry a pumpkin, carry a gun, one gets you jailtime, and its not the gun

no justice no peace!

no justice no peace!

No POINTING! 

no playing on the stairs

no being a child

no justice no peace
