Who's Who Here?

When you see a pair of young black men, walking down the street, looking tough...
When you see a pair of homeless men in your neighborhood, laughing...
You might draw down your blinds
Or lock your door
Because you envision an invasion of your home
Or a theft in your neighborhood
And so you are tempted to call 911
To have them investigated
And removed,
Remember this:
They are more vulnerable than you.
They don't have blinds to blind them
Or locks to lock
They have no protection from your police
But are vulnerable to your power.
