You Woke Up Like This

Sleep Walking

We honor “No Feels” and we dole out “Zero F’s” and have a back up generator for our “Petty Machine” but if we stood in the mirror instead of a self portrait we would see that we reflect society. For society has no feels about people of color, immigrants or women. They give zero f’s about how many of us are murdered or the violence we are subjected to as minorities and women (women of any color are considered minorities….did you know that?). The petty machine generates unfair pay to women and minorities, inequality in education, incarcerated minorities on minor infractions and others roam free on major fraud scandals and rape charges, women still can’t decide what to do with their bodies without man telling what to do with it….but you know….You Woke Up Like This and You Go to Bed Like This and You Live Like This.  -Nicole Jackson
