America in the life
of Bill Withers. Loved his songs back in the day. And loved this article on him. He was smart. In knowing himself. He mentions Emmett Till in his reflections on his past. I was 11 when that racist travesty happened. I was living in Georgia during my summers helping out on the grandparents' farm. I remember my grandparents talking about that murder.
And lo and behold thousands maybe millions of insurrectionists and the GQP led by the ex-potus, a treasonous grifter conman want to return to these type "good old days". George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, and many, many more, all prime examples of their racist behaviors and thoughts today as they did think yesteryears. Republikkkan fascists revel in public executions such as this. Micheal Brown lay in the street uncovered for 8 hours as a warning to African Americans. Repthug fascists are trying to return Americka to the days where they want POC in their place, under their foot-knee on our necks.
Bill Withers's story just reminded me this morning of the shit white racist Americans lay on POC EVERY DAY.
