TAKE IT DOWN

You know, I don’t forgive him!
I admire those who say they do,
and they are better than me.
But I can’t just forgive a killer of
innocent, loving parishioners
because of the color of their skin,
and hatred ingrained, taught by
the ignorant and angry who 
blame others for their failures;
politicians and legislators,
who protect and promote racist symbols;
false newspeople, who twist truth
to satisfy politics of their owners;
professors who promote disunion.
People must stand against racism, 
and we can take a good first step,
by taking down the Stars and Bars.

    I can't believe it's been allowed to be up. Nice statement, Jim. I don't forgive him either.
