The Miseducation of Black Youth

a teacher fired
for getting the black kids
too riled up
about issues of race
about black boys being locked up
for being black
about black boys being blamed for crimes
they didn't commit
about years and years of racism
deteriorating too slowly
about no one caring
if they live or die

and i think
if they aren't riled up
isn't that the greater problem?

shouldn't we all be riled up?
