Poems about Race

I’ve been chased out of southern states Not by my merit or reason other than my race. I’ve been ridiculed in school
Dear President Trump,   Can you hear that?  
Divided, frightened, and slightly uninformed
In all US history, we’ve never been good At treating people the way that we should.
Person of color. I am a person of color in a land full of free, white men. 
Is America the Greatest? Some might say, “it used to be” When we fought for rights and humanity
A for all the times I've been profiled for my skin color.
We refer to America as America the great The country of inequality divided by hate
  My country is beautiful and free -
With every step I thrive With every word I preach I strive
