My Skin is a Target: A Black Lives Matter Poem

What does the American Dream mean for black Americans.  Written by DA Franklin of R World Productions, My Skin is a Target was written to shed light on this subject, especially when, as Franklin says, black people are often told how to feel, demoting personal experience to something that is less valid than an interpretation of those feelings by others.  DA Franklin sheds a glimmer of light as one black male’s interpretation of the American Dream.
