B is for Black

B is for black, And B
as in B for blood,
The very same as runs
Under your very white skin.

Black, as in B for burnt,
At the stake by your history’s
Crimes against us,
Writing lies with white ink.

Hunted, because white is better,
Like a picture book in a child’s study.
Painted as a petty criminal,
Because colored can do no better.

So hunt me till I’m down to none,
And lay me open for all to see,
That I was not the same as you,
And my sun-kissed skin had to bleed.

    I’ve been called a racist many times. By white people. Because I support the BLM. I’m white. I have no friends.

      I’m sorry to hear that Kurt; but stand strong. The right thing to do is often the harder to do. And you will always find friendship and support here. Feel free to check in here again.
