O Anna Niemus (US)
18 Politics Of Governmental Murder
Both flow with red blood.
Both breathe air from the blue sky.
But in the US,
blacks many times more than
whites are murdered by the state.
(Governmental murder is now mainly a Southern phenomenon
with sentencing primarily by Republican judges, some of whom
call themselves prolife.)
