Your whiteness doesn’t scream through the streets as we battle the pain of our steps that are commanded by the streams of blood that leave footprints leading to the next victim who dies for the sake of being Black — while being White and right keeps the body count fatefully cohesive.

How can “streams of blood” command foot steps? I’m all for metaphor, simile, and all other types of creative writing, but this makes on sense. And how many victims die for the sake of being Black? Is that the real reason these people die? Are there KKK snipers out there I haven’t heard about?
