When Will You Be Concerned?

When will You be concerned?

Does the death angel have to get personal for you to recognize that injustice sometimes goes universal and can reach your time and space…?

Does your child, your mate, your family members or friends have to become a casualty for you to truly understand that Poverty and Color should have nothing to do with treating people fairly?

When will You be concerned?

Does your comfort zone and your home have to be interrupted for you to show empathy and sympathy for the plight of those whose lives are in turmoil, whose very existence is in peril?

​When will You be concerned?

Does the wave of poverty have to spill inside your gated community for you to reach out and share some of your overflow, share some of your wealth to the less fortunate?

When will You be concerned?

When slavery makes a comeback? When the local train wreck disguise as a policeman hurt or shoots your son or daughter? Kicks in your door? Breaks your jaw?

Many people should be concerned because Racism is out the closet and some folks have dug up those old White Sheets again…

Dug up and stirred up memories of enslavement and entitlement against some of the tribes of humanity…

When will You be Concerned?

Does the scriptures that foretold of death and destruction have to be outside your door to get your attention?

If your conscious is not your guide, change partners...

If your heart is deaden don't look for your final resting place to be in heaven...

Blocking out, Tuning out, Ignoring, Lack of Empathy and the Hell with Sympathy, the Question STILL REMAINS…When Will You Be Concerned?
