Is Kweisi Crazy?

by Malcolm Ali

Is Kweisi crazy because he demands diversity?

Is Maxine crazy because she hollers,
"The Law only has a long arm when it’s puttin’ us in a headlock!" 

Is Jesse crazy when he demands that justice
not turn a blind eye to injustices committed against us? 

Is Tavis crazy when he uses his platform to cry,
'Freedom now, Freedom tomorrow, Freedom Forever!'

Is Al crazy when he marches up and down the streets
screaming, “We want justice and we want it now!”

Are John Conyers, Julian Bond, and Myrlie Evers all crazy?


Neither was Malcolm, Martin, Booker T. or W.E.B.

Neither were the Civil Rights workers,
When they sat in and stood up for justice. 

Call me crazy, but I think those brothas and sistas are wise. 

I see our potential grow and our futures get brighter,
whenever I gaze into their eyes. 

Our hopes and dreams are on their shoulders, 
And we are on the rise!
