BLACKICIDE*: ANY EXCUSE IS ENOUGH TO KILL A BLACK PERSON IN AMERICA
LOOK AT WHITE LADY, GET MUTILATED – EMMET TILL
Money, Mississippi here I come
I need a vacation from windy
Chicago, Illinois and the hullabaloo.
Emmet Till leaves the windy hullabaloo
And is engulfed in the racist and hatist
Hullabaloo of Money, Mississippi.
Mississippi, the epicenter of American hate.
America, land of the free for Whites but
Slavery and death for Blacks and Colored.
Unproven allegations of flirtation, with
Lowly White cashier in a candy store
Infuriated hateful and vengeful Whites.
Horde of irate and murderous mob
Extricates Emmet from uncle’s home
Murders and mutilates the teenager.
Teenager’s body dumped in river.
White jury of murderers’ peers,
Acquits and exonerates extreme hate.
Black teenagers beware because
Looking at a White lady may lead to
Murder, mutilation, and masking of hate.
Hate still exists in American society as
It existed in 1955, in Money, Mississippi
And sadly, in windy Chicago, Illinois too!
YOU ARE NOT SAFE AT HOME – BREONNA TAYLOR
Sleeping in home after a grueling day,
Slaving as an Emergency Medical Technician,
Saving lives while own life is not safe,
Breonna Taylor retires to rejuvenate, with her
Boyfriend providing solace and security.
Slimy White policemen with a synthetic search warrant,
A product of Systemic Racism and Systemic Hatism that
Suffuses the entire American Police Force,
Break into her apartment after midnight without warning.
Not a knock, shout, noise, rustle, or whisper.
Obtaining a proper warrant not needed for Blacks.
Every Black is guilty until proven innocent by a
White Judge and White Jury of “peers.”
Confused boyfriend fires one shot at the
Night marauders as required under the
Second Amendment of the US Constitution.
The three White Police officers empty their magazines.
A shooting rampage that killed Breonna Taylor in her prime,
A killing justified by a phantom claim of
Drug distribution that was rubbished by the USPS.
EMTs distribute life-saving drugs, not life-cracking drugs.
Executioners of Breonna Taylor not charged for
Killing Breonna Taylor, but charged for
Firing into the juxtaposed apartment, where
Apparently a non-Breonna Taylor was smoking hemp.
CHOKED TO DEATH BY KNEE ON NECK – GEORGE FLOYD, 46 YEARS
“Please, please, I can’t breathe.
Please, man, please, I can’t move.
Give me some water or something,
Please, I can’t breathe, officer.
They’re going to kill me,
They’re going to kill me, man.”
George Floyd beckons on dead mum
To save him from imminent death,
“Mama, Mama…I’m through!”
Derek Chauvin continued applying
Pressure with his knee while tucking
His hand in his pockets as one
Posing for a cover of Fraternity of Police magazine!
“Quit playing man, you can’t breathe,
But you can talk, quit the crap.
You Niggas are as strong as lions.
Is that Covid-19 check yours or not?”
Derek Chauvin applies more pressure
And finally suffocates the Nigga to death,
On suspicion of cashing a fake check.
“Fake checks” handed out by the
US Government to palliate sufferings,
Unleashed by US Government that
Failed to adequately prepare, for
Covid-19 pandemic predicted, by
US Government Agencies and WHO.
Choked to death for a check?
Yes, welcome to America, the
Land of opportunity, freedom, and
Liberty for Whites but death for
Blacks because, “Black Lives Do
Not Matter” and shall never
Matter, as long as policing of
America is a white-only privilege!
JOG AND GET SHOT – AHMAUD AUBREY, 25
Ahmaud Arbrey loves to jog
Jogging prescribed as healthy.
Jogging, healthy for Blacks burdened
By obesity, diabetes, and other racist diseases.
But jogging by Blacks in America is
Dangerous as White racists and hatists,
See Black joggers as fleeing felons,
Felons fleeing from a crime scene.
Ahmaud Arbrey is shot while jogging.
Shot by a stalking father-son duo,
Duo of ugly racist-hatists and
Filmed by a third racist-hatist.
Jogging is for White, not Blacks.
Blacks jog at the risk of death,
Death as any Black jogger is
Guilty of an unknown criminal act.
Ahmaud Arbrey illustrative of the
Dangers of being Black in America.
America, after using free Black labor to
Build America, now sees Blacks as
Nuisances that must be eliminated.
Eliminated by lynching, under any
Pretense, or no excuses because being
Black is enough reason to be executed.
TURN SIGNAL-SANDRA BLAND
What a lovely day for driving; warm, mild and dry,
Fluttering leaves, flitting birds, tweeting humans, galore.
I ease my jalopy unto the freeway, top down, Tupac oozing out of the stereo speakers.
Get up to speed, signal to overtake, old white lady sauntering in fast lane.
Suddenly a police cruiser with rainbow flashing lights and ear-piercing wailing sirens encroach stealthily upon me.
My heart jumps, cold sweat drenches my hoodie.
It’s the dreaded law enforcement automobile.
Two burly, brusque, and white, police officers emerge.
“Ma’am, why didn’t you signal before changing lane?”
Arrested and clamped into jail for a minor traffic violation.
Recrudescence of mental illness due to stress leads to suicide.
Not using turn signal, no excuse to jail a black woman.
HOODIE – TRAYVON MARTIN
Walking leisurely to my mum’s house, in a nice neighborhood wearing my hoodie.
Energy depleted by turning French fries at the fast food joint.
Eager to get home and crash the bed for a deserved sleep.
Notice a white guy stalking me in a pickup truck.
Heeding mum’s advice, “Beware of strangers”
I speed up, stalker speed up, cuts me off,
Jumps out of truck and yells, “You do not belong here”
Terrified and frightened, I yell, “I live here, what do you want”
“I ain’t seen you before, you must be one of them burglars.”
Scuffle ensues, a flash and it was over.
Walking to mum’s house in a hoodie,
No excuse to kill a black youth.
FAKE GUN – TAMIR RICE
Nice sunny, warm, and beautiful day,
Birds chirping, squirrels scurrying, humans sauntering.
Parks inviting visitors to join in the celebration.
Grab my orange tattooed toy gun and dash into the park,
To join the celebration of weather, humans, and animals.
Galloping, ducking, and dodging from tree to tree as John Wayne did in the Western Movies.
Suddenly, a section of the park cleared for me – sign of unwelcomeness.
Next two white police officers are in the park.
The fat one with his gun pointing at me utters, “Drop or I shoot.”
He dropped me before I dropped the gun.
Playing with a toy gun.
No excuse to shoot a black child.
BACHELOR PARTY – SEAN BELL
Glad to be off the bachelor market.
We gonna paint the town red.
Spirits are high, appetites whetted, props readied.
Hey, guys let’s hit the town for one more raucous celebration.
Friends pile into a jalopy after the bachelor shindig.
Who’s that guy stalking us?
Let’s make a run for it.
Unmarked police van hit in scramble,
Five plain-clothes policemen empty 50 rounds at car.
Bachelor boy is killed, two friends wounded.
Celebrating end of bachelorhood,
No excuse to shoot a black man
SELLING CIGARETTES OUTSIDE CORNER STORE – ERIC GARNER
Just got some bootleg cigarettes from Virginia.
Got to pay the rent and feed my family.
Unemployed for twenty months, out of benefits,
Off to favorite spot by the corner store.
“Hey, what are you selling?”
“Do you have a license?”
“Men, cut me some slack, got to feed my family.”
Tackled and strangle hold applied to neck
“I cannot breathe, I cannot breathe.”
The choking continues with greater intensity.
Choked to death for selling loose cigarettes.
No excuse to kill a black man.

Give me Marvin Gaye, you guessed it.
I need some sexual healing tonight.
“Hey man, what do you think that you are doing?”
“Trying to make money to feed my family.”
“You are under arrest, keep your hands up.”
“Can’t keep both hands up, wounded in Vietnam.”
“Shoot, he may have a gun.”
Selling pirated CDs,
No excuse to shoot a black man.
BIBLE STUDY – SOUTH CAROLINA CHURCH
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!! Hallelujah!!!
Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord.
“Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!”
Yea, this song ain’t gonna save you Niggas.
Ta! ta! ta! ta! ta! puu! puu! puu! tatam! tatam!
“Aaaa! Eeeee! Oh my God! Take cover! Take cover!
O Lord, we are coming home, he is shooting at us.”
“Die Nigga, die nigga die,”
Are ‘Niggas’ safe anywhere?
Studying the Bible in a church,
No excuse to shoot black worshippers.
WALKING AWAY FROM POLICE – MARIO WOODS
Someone just got slashed on an arm.
Suspect talking gibberish.
“Hey drop that knife.”
Intoxicated suspect continues to walk away.
“You better squeeze that mother— and kill me.”
No pepper spray, no Taser, shot 20 times – at close range.
By two black policemen – Stockholm Syndrome.
Killer white officer promoted to Sergeant in New York.
Might as well do some promotional killing.
Is drug use and talking gibberish?
While walking away from police,
Enough reason to kill a black man?
RIDING WITH CHILD AND GIRLFRIEND – PHILANDO CASTILE
Pulled over for broken taillight.
“Sir, license, insurance, and registration please.”

He was flushing marijuana down the toilet.
Marijuana is now legal in six states for leisure use.
Then, “I feared for my life” – he had a gun.
No gun found on murdered teen.
Teen not confrontational or lounged at police.
Is unproven suspicion of a crime,
Enough reason to kill you in your grandma’s apartment?
Suspicion, not an excuse to kill a black youth.
NOT SERVILE ENOUGH – ANYONE
Police! Police!! Police!!!
Me no want trouble, better look away.
“Hey there, what are you hiding from us?”
“Nothing Sir, just going my jolly way.”
“What’s that in your pocket?”
“Can I show you; it is my cellphone?”
“Hands out of your pocket.”
Ta! ta! ta! ta! ta! puu! puu! puu! tatam! tatam!

Lies made up to cover wrongful shooting.
Driving with broken taillight.
No excuse to kill a black man.
DOING NOTHING – ANYONE
Walking to car oblivious of danger, lurking in unmarked police car,
Hurled to the pavement, pinned to ground.
“John Doe, you are under arrest.”
“I am not John Doe; I am Donald Brown.”
“Can I show my ID, officers, you are mistaken?”
“He is reaching for a gun; I feel a bulge in his pocket.”
“Stay back, stay back, back away,” – taa! taaa!! taa!!!
“I feared for my life, he has a gun.”
All blacks look alike to the police
Case of mistaken identity can get you killed.
Doing nothing is dangerous for black men,
Doing nothing is no excuse to kill a black man.
WALLET HOLDING – AMADOU DIALLO
Shot forty one times while reaching for wallet in the dark.
Unaware of being stalked by police -as rapist.
Shot forty one times, two officers shooting sixteen times each.
Hit nineteen times, enough to kill an elephant.
Small statured, frail looking black man is as strong as an elephant?
Three officers involved have a history of shootings and killing.
As expected, no conviction is returned.
Impossible to convict with strong video evidence.
Waste of time to try without video evidence.
White policemen can kill any black person.
And make up excuses after the fact.
RIDING COMMUTER TRAIN – OSCAR GRANT III
Lying face down, non-threatening, restrained and unarmed.
A policeman pulls his gun and shoots victim in the back.
“I thought that I was tasering him.”
Why taser a non-threatening suspect?
Black folks are as tough as animals.
Only animals could have survived slavery.
“Let’s handcuff him also.”
A wounded black person is more dangerous,

Ascribing brute animal strength to black persons,
Is enough reason to kill a black man.

Walking home with a friend.
Suddenly a police cruiser appears.
Quickens pace to avoid police harassment.
Banging on neighbor’s door for help.
Hunted down, tasered three times,

These animals are tough to take down.
May have been walking home to get a gun.
The usual, “I feared for my life.”
Black lives do not matter.
Walking home away from the police,
Is it a good reason to kill a black man?
WALKING TOWARDS POLICE – LAQUAN MCDONALD
Black teen behaving erratically but posing no danger to public.
Teenager walking aimlessly posing no danger to police.
First responding officers didn’t fear for their lives.
Here comes a killer cop – empties 16 rounds into teen.
Despite pleas not to shoot by fellow officer.
Shoots within 14 seconds of arriving on scene,
Claims that teen lunged at him – unsubstantiated by video.
“My life is more important than lives of other officers.”

Any black with a cellphone is a killer.
“Any police officer especially would have reacted in the exact same way I reacted,”
What the f…… hell are you doing with an unregistered firearm?
Stalking black game for elimination?
And then claim to fear for your life.
Your damned life should have been in bed.
Any excuse is enough to kill a black person.

Nice pellet gun on the shelf.
Good present for my nephew, Anton.

Why is everyone running away from me?
“Hey dude, drop that gun or I drop you.”

Buying a fake gun in a Walmart,
Too dangerous for young black men.
If you are black, keep away from fake guns,
Or men in black will kill you.
Buying or inspecting a fake gun in Walmart.
No excuse to shoot black youths.
WALKING UP STAIRWELL OF YOUR APARTMENT BUILDING – AKAI GURLEY
“Better draw and cock my gun.”
“Better shoot than be shot.”
“Dangerous people live in these apartments.”
“Blacks you mean“ – “Yes of course.”
Taaa – gun goes off – “Should I report or you report?”
“That can wait- let’s walk down the stairwell”
“I just shot someone – jeeez”
She can continue with the CPR.
Black women stronger than Asian and White males.
Maybe we can call 911 – oh yea.
Walking up the stairwell to your apartment – with your girlfriend.
No excuse to kill a black man.
CALLING FOR HELP AFTER ACCIDENT – RENISHA MCBRIDE

That’s seems like a decent house.
Maybe they can help, tap, tap, tap.
Dem Niggas again, female decoy.
Taam! another black life is taken.
“Can’t cower in my house.”
Shoot and ask questions later.
Knocking on White’s doors after an automobile accident.
Not advisable for Blacks in America.
And for Asians too on Halloween – Yoshihiro Hattori.

Black lesbian acquires fake gun for protection.
While shooing off an aggressive male with fake gun,
Plain-clothes detectives accost and kill her.

Blacks acquiring fake guns for protection,
Is enough reason to be killed by police.
MAKING EYE CONTACT – FREDDIE GRAY
“That’s the look of a suspect, hey dude come here.”
Terrified and afraid, “guilty suspect” tries to evade arrest.
“Guilty suspect” slammed to ground.
Neck broken in fall – as one leg becomes lifeless.
Leg already paralyzed as he was being dragged into van.
Evidence of spinal injury but blame it on the seat belt.
Injured spinal cord aggravated in van ride – no seatbelt in van.
“Guilty suspect” dies a few days later in hospital.
All guilty officers acquitted by “jury and judge”
Non-use of seatbelts never fatal, except in crashes.
Making eye contact,
No excuse to kill a black man.
BIRTHDAY PARTY – JAMAR CLARK

“Hi darling, let’s go home.”
No way, scuffle, female darling injured.

“Hey dude move away from the ambulance.”
“You are under arrest, handcuffs please.”
“Feel my gun move, feel my gun move.”
“Shoot him in the mouth” – taa!.
Being tipsy and moving while slammed to the ground.
Being black and acting tipsy before white policemen,
Is it enough excuse to kill a black man in 60 seconds?
Yes, if you are a white policeman.
HOLDING A CELLPHONE IN GRANDMA’S BACKYARD – STEPHON CLARK
“Hello 911, Someone is breaking windows.”
Police helicopter in the air, two policemen on the ground.
Black, 22-year-old black male in his grandma’s backyard.
Armed with a cellphone, which is known to kill policemen.
“Fearing for his safety,” white policeman discharges ten rounds.
Companion á la Stockholm Syndrome, discharges another ten rounds.
Is the life of a policeman more valuable than the life of Stephon?
Eight direct hits, seven in the back, then handcuffed him, no CPR.
Each of the seven shots enough to kill Stephon per Dr. Bennett Omalu.
Eight shots at his thigh to stop postmortem twitching.
Because black people cannot be killed by one shot.
Holding a cellphone in your grandma’s backyard is enough reason to die.
BOTHAM JEAN, 26, DALLAS, TEXAS, SEPTEMBER 6, 2018.
HOME AFTER WORK
Relaxing and watching TV in his apartment.
An intruding policewoman flings open his door,
Orders him to stand still; “don’t move.”
Petrified, Botham says; “Who the hell are you?”
Paa! paa!! paa!!! Another black life extinguished.
Dallas police obtain a warrant to search,
Or is it plant narcotics, to create a pretext,
For the execution of an innocent man?
Did she “smell” narcotics, or did she
Smell blood, and went for the kill?
Blacks not safe from police execution,
Anywhere in America, being in your car, home,
Or apartment, will not save you from police
Harassment, brutality, and execution.
Black must become innovative to avoid death.
Any Black who lives in the same apartment complex,
Or neighborhood with a police person, please
Affix a sign to your entrance door or portal stating:
“This is not your house or apartment “
If an intruding police person shoots you
In your living room, she/he will have no excuse.

Complying with Texas’ Castle Doctrine and fearful of her life,
Atatiana pulls her registered handgun as ordered by the NRA.
Without warning or introduction, policeman Aaron Dean fatally shoots
Atatiana in her own home, in the presence of her nephew.
As with Philando Castile, another Black killed
By a White police officer, for having a registered handgun,
The NRA has not condemned either killing.
NRA means “Niggas Reject Arms” and not National Rifle Association.
Black lives do not matter, Blacks not permitted to carry firearms.
Licensed or unlicensed firearms in Black arms,
Enough reason for execution by White police officers.
Carrying firearms – another reason for executing Blacks.

Car breaks down on I-95 ramp,
Corey calls for help and help
Was on the way, suddenly,
An off-duty police officer appears.
Driving up the ramp, confronts and
Shoots an unarmed Corey Jones.
Yea, Officer Norman Raja feared
That a Black man armed with a
An empty plastic gasoline can is a
Threat to his drummer-less life.
To Officer Norman Raja, every Black person
Is a threat to his white life.
Black men never let your car
Ever break down – really?
