Why Alton Sterling’s son can’t stop the tears
Not just because his beacon was gruesomely murdered.
Not because he has to live with the documentation of his Dad’s death.
Not because of the white boys who would jeer at him for having no father.
The same father they killed.
He cries not because,
He might never have a chance to kick at the white supremacy that birthed his Father’s death.
The reason why he weeps,
Is because he fears he just might end up like his Father.
