But then again, US society never really lets black children be children

From conception, black children are seen as a burden on society.

A young black boy is not an innocent, precious little boy

He is a future deviant, a criminal, a gang member.

A young black girl is not a delicate, beloved little girl

She is a future welfare queen, unwed mother.

We don’t get the benefit of the doubt that white children get.

A white boy gets into trouble, and society laments that he lost his way.

A white girl gets assaulted, and society mourns her loss of innocence.

I see our society

Where the death of boys like Trayvon Martin are marred with images of him being a hoodlum,

Or the rape of countless black girls are over shaddowed by presumptions of promiscuity.

Black children are left to fend for themselves, as any hardship they endure as just the consequence of being born black.

The evidence is daunting that black babies have no value in our society.
