    My goodness! How moving. I cried... till I laughed and read it out loud to many.
    The humor is devastating....and yet this very act of being fired and being black
    is a painful absolute....and Taylor's poem tell it exactly as it is! Thank you, Taylor

Racism Today

The racist cloaks his loathing thoughts
behind deceiving eyes
Those men who once wore hoods and robes
Today wear shirts and ties

Their methods changed but yet and still,
Their mission is the same
Today they lynch with politics,
the racist's favorite game

Divide and conquer is their plan
to keep minorities
From seeing that the forest lies
just shortly past the trees

Racism lurks within the press,
courthouses, banks and schools
Black folks convinced that all is well
have certainly been fooled

A racist underground exists, ...
