I think it’s funny when one says white privilege isn’t true
How could you think that when the evidence so clearly shines through?
To be honest
I really don’t know where to start
The injustice and dehumanization has ripped thousands of people apart
Should I start with slavery — the worst of it all
When thousands of blacks were shipped like cattle to their ultimate fall
What does it mean when someone is only ¾ of a person
When freedom is decided by territory bargains
Gladly I’ve never been locked in chains
But I still feel the effects of slavery today
When I walk down the street with my dark skinned brothers
I see people lock their cars, and whisper to another
What does it mean to be pretty for a black girl?
Please explain to me stranger
How one can talk like a color
Tell me why people wince when I say that I’m black
How did the negative connotations we know today become attached?
How does one explain the case of Emmett Till
Have you ever seen a 14 year old white boy be lynched for calling out to a girl?
White privilege is built into the core of our nation
But tell me who it was that created the foundation
Imagine living in a world where your work gets you nothing
Because the cycle of poverty continues chaining
If it isn’t the shitty healthcare, education, or opportunities that leads us to our demise
It’ll probably be the cops – Wait aren’t they supposed to be on our side?
In conclusion, and I don’t mean to be impolite
Before you tell me white privilege isn’t real
Get your fucking facts right.
