Cup 19 : Anger

What if there is anger without violence?

 

What if there is violence without anger?

 

Does anyone reading James Baldwin doubt the intensity of his anger? Was he ever violent?

 

Does the Jailer who smashes his fist into the face of the Prisoner, because it is his job, feel anger?

 

There are those who are violent because it feels good to them or it pays the bills, and others who are angry because of that violence.

 

These are not the same thing.

 

There is power in anger, and power in violence. 

 

What is the power of justice?
