This is dedicated to those that live and spread hate.
By Sevgi Fernandez
Do u even see it?
That black cloud that is us creeping ever so slowly over the whiteness that is your palace of hate
It makes you close your eyes, cover your ears and shout “Animals!” as we wait at the gate, our truth in the words we shout at your deaf, dumb ears
Your self appointed pedestal of white domination is dripping red with the blood of our brothers and sisters
Your hatred weeps like blisters, the salve our tears, our pain
Who are the savage beasts? The monsters with their trigger happy fingers pointed straight at our sons, our brothers, our fathers!
You reap what you sow….
Your fear of a multi hued world pressing in, taking over as your Tea Party, KKK club smolders
Your venom poisoning you from the inside
Go ahead and take that slippery ride of hate; far be it for me to berate
You, massa, sir, whitey, cracker, human who bleeds just like me, don’t you see!
We meet your fear with strength
Your hate with love
Your ignorance with knowledge
We will march until the sound of our footsteps haunt every dream you dare to have
We will fight each day with every breath until our peace is had
Until Our justice is equal to your justice
Our pain equal to yours
Through the demise of your humanity we shall rise
We meet your fear unabashed
With nothing to lose
And everything to gain
