“Trayvon Martin armed himself
with the concrete sidewalk and used it to
smash George Zimmerman’s head,”
—Mark O’Mara, George Zimmerman’s Defense Attorney
concrete: death bed. morgue. casket. ammunition.
black magic is
being able to turn anything into a weapon.
black magic kill you with,
arizona iced tea. skittles. air. toy guns. your cells. cars. the concrete trayvon killed was on.
everything: gun or dagger in hands of a nigger.
don’t matter what we hold.
