America Needs A Plethora Of Racial-Bias Education Trainings - Poem by Hebert Logerie

Slavery left a mephitic taste in the mouth of many Americans
And many people living in America. I heard at the gym
That many non-whites are using the "n" word as a hymn
Out of ignorance, immaturity, and stupidity. Because it rains
That does not mean that we have the rights to dirty
The newly mopped floors. Many people need to rinse
Their mouths with Pine Sol. Such a dirty, obnoxious and filthy
Word should stay inside of the racist individuals to be cleansed
Later before going to bed. America needs a plethora of seminars
On Racial-Bias Education. These trainings MUST be held in schools
In churches, at the Police barracks, at the prisons, everywhere
Where people are gathered, in order to make America really cool
Racism is a deadly cancer; let's eradicate it now, right now
Through education. Many lives are affected by unfair practices
By invisible mucky walls that prevent members of the minorities
From getting good paying jobs and decent housings. Let's not bow
To discrimination and racism. Let's eradicate all racist and sexist ideas
Today. Racial disparities affect everyone, even the ignorant racists
In the streets, education, employment, law enforcement, and housing
Bias is treating your peers differently and unfairly. Let's stop lamenting
Let's get rid of the vestiges of bigotry now. At last, let's be at peace
Respect others who look differently. Let's fight all types of injustice
Today, now
Yes, right now.
