Racism just another word for bullshit
Yeah fuck around with a nigger
Shoot me man
Hold your purse tighter when i walk by sure makes me feel comfortable
I sleep in the same type bed you do
Wear the clothes, the shoes
But you superior ain't you
You see a nigger walking throught the streets
First thing comes to mind, he steals
Listen I ain't never stole or killed in my life
Stereotypical mother fucker
All i do is love
My family, my friends no matter what ethnic group
Not a gangbanger or anything of the sort
Haven't fought anyone in my life
But I'm still in that category
The color of my skin makes all the difference
I was colored a shade dark
So that makes me everything bad
Man Fuck You
Your going to need me one day
But you know what unlike you
I will be there and i will help still
Cause I'm not who you make me out to be
Racism just another word for bullshit
hey bubz, i totaly agree with you here, racism is just a lame excuse for bull[censored]ers, i have never been racist and never will be, i have friends of different ethnics and races, so im kool with it all, keep em cummin kyrenia
In my spring semester of school, I took a course pertaining to Southern Literature. One of the most compelling and common themes/topics we focused on was Racism in the South as well as Slavery and African American families under the Jim Crow laws--It was brutal. I don't deny the fact that today is as much worse as it was long ago-so long ago. I know, i've encountered countless of people who are prejudiced, not against just African American's, but any other who are not white-at least don't look white. I wish i could say somehting to make it go away, but that's not the case. This poem was really intense and honest, if you've experienced this than I sympathize with you b/c that's the most I could do from a distance. You are right, Racism is just another word for bull[censored]. Well said, -stacey M.-
I like your brutal honesty. No sugar coating here, and that's always a plus in my book. You wrote it like you are yelling.... it's cool that your words got that across. It's powerful, for lack of a better word. A rant can be poetic. Poems make people feel, and I felt this. I'm not black. I've never been treated this way, but I'm sorry you have. I like that you wrote it how you thought it... it's not a topic to tread on lightly. I agree w/seoul_mecht on the writers he/she mentioned. They are talented, but this is your write. your feelings, and I firmly believe in writing your own way. so stick w/it. Jessica
Well, this was by far the most honest write I've read here, I've been thinking like this forever, glad theres someone like you to speak your mind, lovely. Its so true, racism is so [censored] stupid, its all bull[censored], I mean everyone is the same, and it sucks that people are automatically categorized by there ethnic group. I'm hispanic, so yeah heard a couple stupid jokes, doesn't really bother me, because thats what they want. I think this is a poem a lot of people can relate to, and without the struggle of being dark, then you wouldn't have created such a wonderful and honest write, it hit me deep, I thought it was great! Keep up the great work!! Take Care!!
Firstly, I'm not gonna say this was a "good write!" or how "racism is such a powerful word these days" or anything of the sort. I think this was more of a rant post or journal rather than a poem. (And no, I'm not white but I have family who are). I think you had a good idea going for the most part of the poem-the expression of anger in a very understandable way and it was a pretty bold move for you not to censor yourself by saying using the word "nigger". Though this writing lacks any type of form, I think that's simply reflective of the emotion itself since anger itself has no true, graspable, form. I'm curious to see what your take on the subject matter would be if you were in a more calm state of mind. All in all, I feel that something was lacking. A lot of black and white people have the exact same problem but they manage to articulate themselves better and reach a broader base of people. Have you ever checked out the writings of Saul Williams or Maya Angelou?
Racism is still to day a controversial word. The word brings so many memories from the past to the forefront. Society has not made the problem any better. They have just masked and hid it from themselves. We are a people of one but so divided. Who really knows the reason? We are raised with the same beliefs passed down from generation to generation and we have not yet learned to break the cycle. You are young and have a long life ahead of you but I am afraid that even you will never see the day that this disease will be cured. I say disease because it is just that. I disease that infects our young passed on from the old. No, there is no cure for all. However, there is hope. Hope is a powerful magic, just not a cure.
Live life as you are and speak the words of your mind and heart for all to hear. They do hear. Chip away at the block of hate and widdle away at the realism of racial boundaries. Seek to change that which is corrupting our society. Seek hope for all races to understand and live as one.
Wow! This is quite the write! So full of anger and I cant say I blame you. Racism is such an awful thing and I never understood it. I see everyone as my equal, a human being. Everyone has the same feelings and emotions and to be treated differently just because of race is indeed tragic and wrong. It is nice to see you voice your feelings in a write such as this. I respect this write very much! My favorite part:
Your going to need me one day But you know what unlike you I will be there and i will help still
That is just beautiful! This is a good, sincere poem filled with honest expression of your feelings. Good job. Take care!
