Democracy on Deaf

Helicopters hiss, sirens screech but it’s too quiet.

Black men shot, black men strangled, black men beaten but it’s too quiet. People march, signs&hands up (don’t shoot!), hashtags&twitter bombs, post&reposts, articles&discussions but it’s too quiet.

Candle light vigils.

A mother’s late night sobbing.

A father’s prayers.

Community meetings&petitions, political speeches&campaign promises but it’s too quiet.Rocks&Molotov, “riots” &Riot gear.

Can you hear me now?
