Blue Bloods Bad For Blacks - Poem by Saiom Shriver

Blood is red, not blue,
in blacks, Asians, and whites.
But CBS' tv show Blue Bloods is
bad for blacks.

Topic(s) of this poem: police brutality

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Note: It's standard that white officers are arresting
and interrogating blacks in the show.

The show promotes racial unrest as do
other shows such as Cops Reloaded.
Tom Selleck's chief assistants are
both white males.

The NY Times reported that the NYPD is 16%
black while the city is 23% black. NYPD
falls behind, but Blue Bloods falls behind
even more.

Whites who kill blacks are 354% more likely
to be cleared of murder
