Silent Curse Words

They sent Jamal to detention for saying "********" yet he saw a billboard of the "KKK with the president" Maria cried when Emily told her "If you say "f*** again, we won’t be friends" but Maria heard that "they’re building a wall on CNN" When Mohamed told Jenny, you have a "big a**" She practiced her jujitsu and punched him in the face While eating halal meat for dinner he heard, "We’re banning people of the Muslim faith" Danielle sat on the sidelines during the soccer finals She was red-carded for saying "you’re sh**" to their rivals but in Time Magazine she read, "In Mississippi they’re refusing service to homosexuals" Ahusaka was in his room today tweeting to his followers about the super bowl He didn’t go snowboarding He called John a "mofo" Ding, a notification on Ahusaka’s phone from the Chicago Tribune "The new administration is pushing through, the pipeline under Standing Rock Sioux" Jamal, Maria, Mohamed, Danielle and Ahusaka paid their dues but who's held accountable for "the silen* cur** wor** of the mighty few"

Thank you, Maria for your encouragement. I totally agree, they're a handful of ignorant, but mighty monsters. But we can rise above and fight back, with our actions and our words. Thanks, again :)
