How could I become racist if I wanted to?
Would I be somewhat twisted if that were my dream?
There’s sufficient insanity established now
Among all the world’s nations. The hate we allow
To consume and divide us. Much to the extreme
Do we take differences in all that we do.
What’s it like to be human? Well, that all depends
On what color my skin is and where I come from.
This is human behavior. The ‘cream of the crop’
Notion masters the mindset. Unable to stop
The commission of hatred, we must treat as scum
Some portion of the populous. We can’t be friends.
A grand time machine is all that I’d really need.
I’d go back before there were colonizations.
I’d convince all the leaders of Africa and
All the other dark nations to occupy land
In Europe. All whites would be put on plantations
In the rice fields of China. White slaves I would breed.
Then, I would be a racist, and having come back
To the present, I would have a deep sense of pride
And aversion to others who don’t look like me.
We would joke about why ‘they’ can’t dance soulfully.
The white race as a whole would feel empty inside.
In this way could I call myself proud to be black?
