    How true and on point this tell it like it is poem is. The color of ones skin has certainly been the rage of brutality in authoritative figures and in pubic who walk with hate in their eyes. When will it end, I wish I knew. Thank you for this well versed and truthful pome Francis..... (Report) Reply

    In centuries, the good people were the prey of racism
    Racists are butchering humanity from this earth.
    The idea of ' might is right', they try to establish....... very reight

    Racism is a lethal poison of ignorance, high treason and hypocrisy. Unfortunately, racism is in the air, in the air waves, in Wall Street, in the school system, in the Parliament, in the judicial system, etc. etc. (Report) Reply

    Racism is a concern yet so many of us see such friendships uniting with so many from different countries. It is a small world and it would be wonderful to unite as one. Wonderful words expressed. (Report) Reply

    ...as ignorance is bliss,
    when struck, you don't know why what hit you hit you,
    and if you survive
    you're glad you're alive,
    but none the wiser,
    as ignorance is bliss,
    and when struck, you don't know why what hit you hit you... (Report) Reply

    Excellent words. Racism a shocking words, with a small percent who support. Yet enough to cause so much damage . I speak with all different cultures each day and laugh with them all. Thank you (Report) Reply

    So correctly you have said, racism in human is only to discriminate
    With the plea of ignorance it is nothing but an indulgence to humiliate. (Report) Reply

    It's an inspiring poem that captures the struggle faced between the people who receive such racism. The poem depicts how blind people can be to racism around them and how it is still a problem today. Diversity is what will bring people of all races together and acceptance will lead to a better society. (Report) Reply
