Racial Bigotry...Is All Bullshit - Indeed Here's Why Poem by James B. Earley

Racial Bigotry...Is All Bullshit - Indeed Here's Why



Author's note:
'A Black man's perspective' JBE

We're all kinfolks...it's true
...Wasn't always...that way...
Master raping our grandmas
Beginning...that very first day

...Of Man's inhumanity
Slavery's legacy as such
History's insidious heritage
Perception...indeed out of touch

Hypocritical relatives
...My....irreversible kin
Christian nation...we treasure
Born...of despicable sin

...A venom fueled hatred
Still cradles and floods
Its bigoted populace
Folks sharing my blood

Tomorrow hangs in the balance
...The die.....thus cast
Our future depends...
On....resolving the past

...Hypocrisy....of denial
Miscegenation is clear
Master's rape of our grandmas
...‘Tis the fault that we're here


Author's note:
'What makes it so plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core.'
~Hannah Arendt
