Who?

Who?

By Mona R. Washington

Setting................................The Cosmos

Time...................................Eternity

The World........................All living people

Conscious Person......... All living people who care about other living people

If and when The World spends too much time and energy contemplating a person who demonstrates a heartbreakingly ignorant, rude, and ahistoric worldview to a politically Conscious Person who gives a damn about correcting The World's tragic mistake.

The World: What Jay-Z said about Belafonte is--

Conscious Person: Who is Jay-Z?

The World: You don't know who Jay-Z is?

Conscious Person: Does Jay-Z know who I am?

The World: You know he's Beyonce's husband. He makes a lot of money, and he's a rapper--

Conscious Person: ---and I am a Conscious Person who will never forget Trayvon Martin's killing, and Harry Belafonte's dignity and activism. So like I said, who is Jay-Z?

The End of political naiveté, and hope-- if conscious people stop confronting fools
