It puffed its foul thick smoke into the very air of our cities and towns
we look out from our windows of perception at the world speeding by and

Hard not to see it in those pictures unless you are deaf to the realities of history or even the present with our have and have not society dividing us by race and poor against poorReplyDelete

I don't hate white people. I don't hate any one at all and I don't make decisions about people based on the color of their skin.ReplyDelete
