Blue Knight Riders — From Sometimes Blue Knights Wear Black Hats


They don’t wear white sheets
Or burn crosses in the night,
But there’s an unmistakable connection
Between these blue and white knights.
They kill innocent Black males
For horrific crimes real and imagined,
And because grand juries won’t vote true bills —
They give these cops a license to kill.
There’s something familiar in their faces,
A clearly recognizable white rage —
There since the birth of this nation —
Misreported in this tabloid age.
This is no mere comedy of errors,
But a full-fledged reign of terror.
