One day we won’t be marching

I know today’s blog is supposed to be about wishes. I haven’t lost track of the days I know it’s Wednesday. But what better wish than to live in a world where all of Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream is a reality.

Marching On

Trials and tribulation

Prompted our parents to march for desegregation

Common sense took a vacation

Riots and fires broke out

A King went to Washington to speak out

The Emancipation Proclamation

Has been inherited by the Hip Hop Nation

Many are enslaved in drug rehabs and prison plantations

Picking cotton a distant memory

The truth is bitter and gory

Fools us into telling a different story

Some are bound by ignorance

Because it’s too painful to reminisce

Instead of brains and intellect

We’re praised for the balls we deflect

Stereotypes Civil Rights Marchers fought hard to reject

Inheritors of the dream now embrace and protect

George  Zimmerman makes better fairy tales than the Brother’s Grimm.

George  Zimmerman  and his camp make better fairy tales than the Brother's Grimm. Thankfully nobody dies in his latest attempt at fiction. The most polarized man in America is now being portrayed as a Good Samaritan.  I know it's crazy from killer to saint. We're talking about the man who was unable to stop himself from killing a 17 year old child armed only with ice tea and a bag of Skittles.  Somehow that same Zimmerman turned into a real life hero and managed to rescue 4 people from an overturned car. Hey I can't make this stuff up. It's their story not mine. Really Georgie, you should tell Mark O'Mara to look up "Scandal's" Olivia Pope and her Gladiators to fix this mess your in. The holes in the stories you come up with are larger than the Grand Canyon.  Allegedly On Wednesday July 17th, 2013,  Zimmerman rescued the Gerstle family after their Ford Explorer. It's possible right? Yeah,  maybe on Fantasy Island with Mr. Rourke pulling the strings. Zimmerman's defense attorney O'Mara would have us believe that poor defenseless Georgie is capable of pulling 2 adults and 2 children out of an overturned car all by himself.  So glad for the Gerstle family no one had on a hoodie and the kids weren't snacking on Skittles during the family outing. George the Good Samaritan might not have been able to resist the urge to defend himself from the overturned car.
