THE WHITE GAZE

With one look l can murder you, extinguish your black body in the glare of your community, in fact the entire world through a camera lens with no feelings of humanity, no concern...While you call out loud at the same time breathless while I extinguishing your life, black voice ends with a whisper "I can't breathe...I can't breathe..."
