Hill Hypocrisy

January 8, 2021
Frank A. Clark, MD

One doctor reflects on how America continues to capitalize on racial unrest.

Ebony spectators flummoxed while ingesting Orville and viewing the familiar movie reel.

The ghost of Gadsden puzzled by the lack of ferocious canines salivating on the Hill.

Ebony spectators reflect on the iconic Selma foot soldiers prepared for a hemorrhagic battle.

The ghost of Lewis puzzled by a cohort of unphased Blue opening the gates to ivory privileged cattle.

Ebony spectators simmer at the palpable juxtaposition that was illuminated during the protests.

The ghost of King puzzled by the America who continues to divest from humanity and capitalize on racial unrest.
