Blacks and Whites


Why do Whites get blamed for slavery,
When no Black is old enough to remember
What really happened?

Why do Blacks get blamed for crimes,
When no White was there to witness it?
What has happened to our society?

Why do Whites get blamed for cultural appropriation,
When American Culture come from immigrants?
What has happened to our society?

Why don't Blacks get blamed for telling Whites
When they can and cannot speak about race?
What has happened to racial equality?

Why don't Whites get blamed for not hiring Blacks,
When Blacks are forced to turn to theft
When they don't get paid enough to live?

Why don't Whites and Blacks get along,
When there's nothing to stop us but ourselves?
What is stopping us?

What is stopping us from living together in
The world we share?
