Modern Racism

Thu, 10/30/2014 - 10:09 -- Zmac

Generations before

now define the present

a once proud race

now treated like pheasent

I am judged

based on the color of my skin

even though I consider

those with different color skin my kin

I can't do things

because I'm not colored right

I'm am somehow inferior

because I'm not colored night

I'm hated for things

I did not do

I am blamed for troubles of a race

because it just won't do

for things to be

fair and equal

whites began racism but ended it

now blacks are righting the sequel

You will never guess 

why I can't be good or light

roles reversed and I m persecuted

just for being white
