Racism


We didn't talk about it.
We knew it was coming,
But we never talked about it.

Maybe because a little piece of us didn't believe it.
Maybe because we were just too afraid to acknowledge it.

So we didn't talk about it.
And we continued on with our sitcoms,
And our reality TV,
And our politics,
Like everything was as it always had been.

But it wasn't.
