Racism Today

Rating: 3.2
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,
a chilling fact indeed
They seek to kill, steal and destroy,
We can't let them succeed

Nope. It’s promoting it in fact. It makes all white people look bad, cause it’s only based off of white people. I may be black but I certainly don’t agree with this poem that much.
