THE WORLDWIDE ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF PEOPLE
Obama called for calm after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting
of an unarmed African American teenager Trayvon Martin And while I am white
there are certain parts of the U.S. & the world where if the yellow star of David
were pinned to my chest my life might be in danger Does the invisibility of my
minority make me safer? I am also a woman so there are places I should not walk
alone at any hour in my Canadian city Hannah Arendt who coined the phrase
the banality of evil said that since Jews are humans the Holocaust should be
considered a crime against Humanity Obama said if he had a son he would look
like Trayvon And if Hannah Arendt had a daughter she would look like me
Why not all don hoodies & wear the yellow star And would someone please
stand guard as I walk through my deserted moonlit park? How about you?
Or are you endangered too?
Oh, Woman is the slave to the slaves… yes she is…
If you believe me, you better scream about it.
(Woman Is The Nigger Of The World John Lennon)
