Sandra, we won’t forget you. (Texas. 2015 july, racism events)

Dear followers, I’m sorry but sometimes beauty has to take a break

By Blake, William - A negro hung alive (a depiction after John Gabriel Stedman narrative

By Blake, William – A negro hung alive (a depiction after John Gabriel Stedman narrative) 18th century

A poem from the Germany coeval of the poet Bertolt Brecht says:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me”.
CAN WE ADD ‘I WAS NOT A BLACK PERSON’ ?

  1. African-Americans dying in police custody for ridiculous offenses: not signaling a lane change, selling single cigarettes, etc is outrageous! Thank you for this poem.

  2. Buenas noches,

    Primero, pedir disculpas por escribir en castellano (…) Gran entrada, mi más sincera enhorabuena; felicitar igualmente la enorme sensibilidad, solidaridad que demuestra.

    • Hola Loli, bienvenida son tus visitas, y sin necesidad de ninguna disculpa, porque aunque el blog esté en inglés yo no lo soy. Fue la idea de inicio para conquistar audiencia por ahí por todo el planeta y realmente funciona, pero añoro poder escribir en mi lengua. Tu tienes un sitio muy con una labor muy admirable. Digamos que el mío es más superficial, pero bueno, todo tiene su momento y su publico. Un millón de gracias por tu comentario. Hasta pronto 😉

    • Oh Julia, your comment is so kind, but what this blog explains is so little bit. I’m finishing this sunday with the good news that is one more opinion against police brutality and lies of justice. Thanks a lot for sharing your nice opinion. Best wishes, dear. 😉

      • I know. Whatever anyone writes, says or does seems so small in light of the immense injustice and tragedy. Yet we must speak, write, draw and call attention to atrocities. I’m thankful for each person who does this!

      • I’m sorry for my delay, in this part of planet already we are saying the good morning. I love your comment and I always believed that if most people would think like you, our society, civilisation and community would be better. A warm hug. ❤

  5. i love Blake although i had no idea he was an artist, i am used to his poetry and this is not ugly, its painful and i am black so trust me i feel the pain but this kind of stance from a man who wasn’t black is an entirely new genre of beautiful, sometimes elusive to the eye…

    • Oh my dear, so true, this is a drawing so painful. When I posted this picture, one follower said something similar that this author is so known for his writings. But well, I replied her the same as I’m telling to you. Blake was a so prolific draftsman, and so worried about the matters social, political and about community. A complete creative personality. I’m thankful for all your comments. Best wishes and see you soon. 😉
