And the very reveal could appeal
Put you on the Alcatraz trail or railroad to hell
If the secret backstab, the “blackmail in braille”, were to be revealed, it would make a Black man so mad that the actions he would take in response would get him either thrown in prison (“put on the Alcatraz trail”) or killed (“railroad to hell”).
Also, ‘appeal’ is a legal term meaning to get a case heard in a higher court. With the new known evidence, a black man would want to seek justice, but in the process he would fail because the system does not allow for it.
