Racist or Rude?


Forever, races have been wronged.
Whites wronging blacks has always been.
Racist ways change, but are prolonged
With reminders time and again.
Superiority believed
By whites over blacks is racist.
Sometimes whites talk, and are perceived,
Wrongly or rightly, words consist,
By dissing blacks of racist tone.
But a real racist is much more
Than just speaking the words alone.
True intent must be at the core.

A real racist's apology -
How true may or may not that be?

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
