They Just Can’t Think Outside the Box

They just can’t think outside the box
and the box is old experiences with
race relations. The box is opening
and justice and reparations and
catching up and doing the right
thing are bouncing out all over
and the old, white, male, profess-
ional journalists just don’t get
it. They keep trying to put things
back in the box, which is a black
box in a supersonic plane flying
at the speed of light, and the
box keeps opening and black and
brown and yellow and red young
people keep popping out, high
fiving, jiving and shouting that
justice is arriving for everyone,
even old, white, male professional
journalists that just can’t think
outside of the box — anymore.
