Uncle Sam’s Muslim Ban

We want to ban Muslims from coming to America

because it is a lot more socially acceptable for Uncle Sam to kill them

when they are in their own countries rather than here in America

unless, of course, they are black Muslims

then Uncle Sam can kill them nearly as easily and indiscriminately

for something as simple as a minor traffic violation

or even for nothing at all

because, to Uncle Sam they aren’t Muslim

so much as they’re black

and when you’re black

much of America is similar to Iraq

and Afghanistan

and Yemen

and Syria…

you can be gunned down by the US government for just existing

never mind resisting

though we should all resist

and we should all insist

that the Unites States government cease and desist

gunning down innocent civilians

in America and oversees

cease and desist occupying sovereign nations

no matter how progressive the administration may look

cease and desist using tax dollars to destroy life

cease and desist hiding behind a bloody cloth

a shitty song

a French made statue

and a fairy-tale glossing over genocide and slavery.

 

People from the Middle East have been dehumanized for a LONG time

so OF COURSE there is a “Muslim ban”…

but we’re seventeen bloody years into Afghanistan

so you can save your tears and complaints

and show some goddamn restraint

the next time the taxman comes calling you…

The worst that they can do to you

is FAR less than what you PAY THEM to do

to Muslims (and others)

in Afghanistan (and elsewhere)

and black people (and others)

in New York City (and elsewhere)
