Chasing the boogieman

We are experiencing a more mature Jim Crow. A toddler Jim Crow stuck his tongue out at Black women hanging from Florida Oak trees. An adolescent Jim Crow colored Black men as animals. An adult Jim Crow graduated from the cotton fields to corporate America continuing the nineteenth century argument that Black deaths in medicine are result of poor genes and compulsive health behaviors. A Jim Crow that has become more dignified, yet, disguised. This Jim Crow is not new, just grown up; we should call him James. Maybe, just maybe, we should call him the boogieman.
