Misuse Of The Race Card
When Blacks or other minorities rightfully complain
About mistreatment, abuse, inequity and injustice
After being profiled and persecuted by the racists
The privilege ones tried to falsely accuse the sane
And the courageous victims of playing the race card.
What race card?
The race card is used during employment opportunities
When well educated minorities are hired and offered less money
After the least qualified members of the white majority
Are unjustifiably promoted to better paying jobs with bonuses
Yet, they cowardly blame the victims for playing the race card.
White race card?
No group can play the race card surreptitiously better than
The beasts that are not yet out of the closet or the hypocrites
Who claim to be progressive and open minded. These cheats
Are toxic and very dangerous. Because they always have a plan
They are sneaky. Yes, they really know how to play the race card.
Right race card?
The victims are the last to be hired and the first to be fired
This vile trend has been going on for centuries, for a long time
These types of discrimination should be treated as a hate crime
The lack of opportunities for all minorities hurts. And we are tired
When the culprits bluff and sham, while using or misusing the card.
