Opinion | An attempt to answer a question

Published by Michael Cannistraci, Date: April 5, 2023

Langston Hughes once asked if Death

Would find the life of a white

Multi-Millionaire more important than

A Black cotton-picker. It does

Make you wonder. I, today,

Ask if the life of Governor Ron DeSantis

Is worth more than that of activist

And actress Laverne Cox?


It is my opinion, if I may, to say

That ALL life is created equal

And worthy of dignity and

Love. In the end, Death sees us

As all the same, and is the

Ultimate, unbiased individual.


*Written with inspiration from “Question [1]”, by Langston Hughes, influential Harlem Renaissance poet, author, and playwright
