WE CHARGE GENOCIDE
dwarfed by the
that mouth aphorisms of Anglo-Saxon
kills genocide of which we complain is as much a fact as gravity.
The whole world knows of it
familiarity disguises its horror
so hidden by talk of liberty
and the deadly legal euphemisms
An erasure of a short section of “We Charge Genocide: The Crime of Government Against the Negro People,” a paper written by the Civil Rights Congress to the UN in 1951.
