Treasure Island

Racism


When I moved to the South
Racism is all I heard about
It was a black and white issue
I tried to tell them that was not true
Everywhere I have been and in other countries
Racism has existed for centuries
In Africa black Africans fight against Africans that are black
Just different tribal packs
In the Middle East
I cannot tell the difference between the fighting nationalities
England what can I say
They have the IRA
Racism is a universal problem that must be put away
How about the straights against the gays
Women against men
China against Japan
Muslims against Christians
Everybody raises their hands
Racism is not just the clan
Racism is defined as a ethnic or cultural problem
Any discrimination against anyone should also be considered a type of racism

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
