I cannot stand
that this happens
so goddamn often.
Whose accident matters more?
There are a million inescapable potholes
for a person from the global majority
to get wrecked in
on these colonial roads.
When you’re a target
there is the possibility of accident
at every turn
and no permission
These cops are supposed to be trained
to prevent destruction
and keep the peace.
They cannot claim their actions are accidents
or failures of instruction.
They are accountable, negligent
and racist police.
I have compassion and hear each side
and understand mistakes are made
but at this scale and frequency
these accidents are genocide.
