Unequal Equals

They used to hang us on trees for fun
We didn’t have a fighting chance or no time to run
We were outnumbered and outgunned
The pen is only mightier than the sword when you know how to use one
They kept knowledge from us cause our mind is a weapon
We only had skills like obeying and picking cotton
Deep down they want to be like us and we want to be like them
Being proud of who you are and doing whatever you want cause you really dont care
Or
Having class and being accepted everywhere
It’s a shame we characterize ourselves by color
When it should be on moral being and honor

  1. What They did was unacceptable. It still is for me. It will always be. I can’t hate any race cause it’s never in my heart. I can’t . I’m fed up with hating. Are We not the same? We need to stop and think and feel and practice empathy . Why are we so scared of hearing another language or respecting other people culture? Human beings can be evil and get away with it. I have seen that. I hope one day it can stop. Killing for pleasure. Torturing for fun. Embarrassing God. But Forgive if you can and Remember if you want. I hate injustice…see? I’m in my own journey to forgive and remember and forget. Stay blessed my friend.πŸ™…πŸ™‡πŸ™…πŸ‘Œ
