Black Activist, Shawn Welcome, has uploaded a passionate poem on Youtube which addresses the New Civil War: Abortion!
In the sonnet Welcome describes the time of slavery, “1861, musket rifles with mini ball bullets blast across the mason-Dixon line from both sides,” the poetic performer begins.
“Bayonets in my neighbors’ neck if they’re close enough, gun-smoke and tensions in the air, this won’t end for another four years. The American Civil War, a bloody conflict within the same nation. On the backs of Blacks was built the wealthiest…” he laments, “Slave ships were packed and hearts were hardened, never asked to be here how unfair that we’re the problem…“
“Never asked to be here, how unfair that they’re the problem,” he says as he moves his hand in cradle formation near his stomach alluding to the unborn babies in America.
“All in the name of freedom. Party like a rock-star while little ones are dying.
Silent screams from injected saline and dreams you will never hear because little lungs were punctured before they could fully function,
WHO WILL BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS?” he cries out,
“How many freight trains of injustice will roll by behind church buildings while service inside sings louder?
Hands in the air, pump up the volume…drowning out the rumblings of oppression.
No formal funerals, miniature caskets, only the likes of medical waste to management tell me “how many pounds of flesh do you pick up for profit?
And when will that “waste” begin to weigh down on your conscience?”
He continues, “Killer #1 – by African Americans is done by a wolf in sheep clothing [ Planned Parenthood] – music soft – white coats- put-em-on, take them off…How much does it cost to ignore the exotic white tiger in the bathroom…”
“History repeats itself: The new civil war where African Americans are on the front line No jury. Dying for the same reasons: They’re not human – fully! Slavery wouldn’t have ended if it depended on quiet. Folks willing to take a bullet to the head and some riots. And I’m all for non-violence because words can change trends. But, worse than words from my enemies is the silence from my friends!” Shawn Welcome ends his poem.
