This Land – by David Elmakayes

Is this the “land of the free”? The land that was promised to our ancestors that died fighting to create “this land”? I thought this was the land where dreams of fairness and mutual respect lives on. The land where you are defined by your actions, not your looks or beliefs! But for too long these ideas have taken refuge inside works of literature, television programs and dreams. In this land “Equality should have no boundaries; opportunity should have no boundaries”. Worth should outshine color. The ball should bounce the same for everyone on “this land”. Funny how in this “land of the free” the only time we are treated equal is once you’re incarcerated. Ones name is replaced with a number. You’re given the same food, jumper and shoes, undergo the same subjugation and humiliation. If we can be equals in prisons, then we should be equals everywhere.

David is currently being charged for his participation in last summer’s George Floyd uprising in Philadelphia and is need of a new attorney. Please donate at:
