Bill, you're preaching to the choir when you tell me America is racist and always has been. I live in North Carolina and I watch people destroy their lives in order to maintain a racist system. I meant to make African Americans or Native Americans or Mexican Americans feel they have half the responsibility is what I was protesting.

The poem has improved but it is still not as sharp as it should be. Maybe you're trying to be too reasonable?

John;

Lately, I feel more angry than reasonable. Pure anger can be done well in poetry and has been done well. I need to be more of a purist when it comes to anger.

In matters of race what you say about North Carolina sounds familiar. Colorado is simply delusional.

Thanks for dropping by again. I feel like you need poetry as much as I do.


Bill
