    He's speaking justice....justice
    ....justice....to be sought
    to be sought.....to be sought...
    irregardless if he did it or not
    it reminds me of this thing called
    "innocent until proven guilty"
    that too many of "JUST US"
    have not really been able to bask
    in this ideological light...I've been
    feeling sick lately...the arrogance in the
    air has me nauseous...the stench in the
    air has me nauseous....the bs floating
    in the air has me nauseous...I don't
    have time to be sitting before the
    porcelain goddess because of empty
    speeches and bullies that pose
    as politicians....Last time I checked
    blak folks were looking for JUSTICE in
    every crevice of this union...and here
    the bush was beaten and now, infinitely,
    they're seeking justice....last time I
    checked they were seeking JUST US in
    every neck of the hood...don't check the
    headlines check the chalked out outlines
    that demarcate lost sons and daughters
    that have died due to an institutionalized
    "infinite JUST US" that has haunted JUST US
    before the towers were raised...now they've been
    razed and it is a tragedy but ****, what
    about our tragedies?...what about the mental
    planes that have smashed in our connection
    with our past....yet now I've got to smell this
    arrogance...and my stomachs turning
    and I wish rolaids could spell relief...but it can't...
    so I'm turning the TV off and just pray.

    Well Done!

    It's always "just us". When it all boils down to the bottom of the pot, there is "just us" still waiting, still hoping, still believing that things have changed when we know they haven't--"just us"--thanks for reminding me--Ra
