by Shawntaye Scott

You view me a certain way
Because of my skin color
Not once did you even say
Are you not like another?

I won't tolerate treatment
That belittles my being
Just because it's my pigment
You choose to keep on seeing.

It is not even my fault
You can't stretch your mind to see
Outside your mental vault
Of century established bigotry.

So don't come at me all racist
Just because you think you rule
Because the shit you inflict
Shows you are the biggest fool.

To think that because you
Believe I'm less than human
Therefore, I should submit to
Your ignorant, dehumanizing actions. 

We are all made equally,
Under the Lord, from within
So I suggest that you truly
Get over yourself, you cretin.
