I Declare MAY as POETRYMONTH even in America 2021!
America doesn't understand English, Apparently! (and or) Apparently, (the) English have never really understood America!
Unless and until:
1.) The infinitely wealthy, criminally insane and perpetual minority of White people want drug treatment, prosecution of corporate drug pushers, for opioid addiction reduction and control. Then magically, science, research, medical research, all the required and relevant
2.) The infinitely wealthy, criminally insane and perpetual minority of White people won't drug legalization, research, control of lucrative supply chains, and creating infrastructure that no longer is grown with the needs of patients with "chronic" and or "terminal" disease. Then the average English speaker suddenly is okay with being articulate, detailed, and meticulous in editing printed text. They are even willing to spare no expense to translate all communications in Spanish, German, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, and Russian ( using the Cyrillic alphabet). Fluency and prosody are mother's milk to marketers. Marketers Manufacture Consent because we encourage, honor, and reward their psycho-manipulitive and exploitative appropriation of speech and text solely to increase generational wealth.
3.) The conclusion: Whenever white folks respond "I don't Understand", they are actually shouting out and proud: "I refuse to understand because it might mean the death of criminal capitalist hegemony!" Understanding anything that threatens profits and or profiteers is verboten!
They could understand if they had allowed 100% of all history to have created historical records from winners and losers perspectives and or allowing multiple points of view to be recorded in historical canon. But it is not for Black teachers to convince them of anything especially their willful ignorance. Unless, teaching them, speaking to and with them is in our best interests and keeps them from harming themselves and or others. If all that civil rights means in America is that when some embrace their right to bear arms, expand that right to load and discharge anmunition at will, and thus can kill solely on the basis of preferred/ non-preferred skin color, the end guaranteed for the USA is annihilation, violently with planned terrorism by design.
No worries, mate! These lyrics may never see the whites of the eyes of the folks that need to be de-scaled to finally see clearly everything that needs to change if America is ever to become the land of the free and the home of the brave, one nation, under LOVE, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
