Discrimination Poem by Kenneth Rexroth


Rating: 2.8

I don’t mind the human race.
I’ve got pretty used to them
In these past twenty-five years.
I don’t mind if they sit next
To me on streetcars, or eat
In the same restaurants, if
It’s not at the same table.
However, I don’t approve
Of a woman I respect
Dancing with one of them. I’ve
Tried asking them to my home
Without success. I shouldn’t
Care to see my own sister
Marry one. Even if she
Loved him, think of the children.
Their art is interesting,
But certainly barbarous.
I’m sure, if given a chance,
They’d kill us all in our beds.
And you must admit, they smell.

Does it feel bad to be a disgusting person? The only person that stinks is you. If I were given the chance I would kill you in your bed too. smh

It's a satirical poem, being " racist" to the whole human race. Are you the racist? What race came to your mind?

Your aloud to have your opinion, however you do not need to share it. Especially if your just being a complete A-S-S. I bet you smell.
