America the Great!
With our high educational standards
Our freedom of speech and press and opinions
Our equal rights
Our life expectancy of 78.9 %
Ooh, America the Great!
Where our high school graduation rate is at an all time high of 81% based off mandatory testing
Where our mandatory testing is simplified to portray us of higher intelligence
Where, yes under the Constitution, we have freedoms -but there is a catch-
Where you can say what you want as long as it does not offend anyone
Where you can publish news but if it is not what the public wants to hear, it’s “fake news”
Where if you say your opinion, you are hounded by anyone with a device
Where your life expectancy is 78.9 % if you are Caucasian
Where your life expectancy is 4.3% lower if you are simply born African American
America the Great?!
When we have the highest incarceration rate per capita
When you are two times as likely as a Caucasian to be incarcerated because you are Latino
When you are two times as likely than a Latino to be incarcerated because you are Black
When our total gross national debt is 18.96 trillion dollars
When there is a 20% wage gap simply because of gender
When Americans are 47th in suicide death rates in the world with 13 deaths per 100,000 people
When 193,862 suicide deaths occur every year
America the Great?
America can be great
America has the tools to be great
America needs help
America is beautiful
America is for the foreign
America is for all of us
America is a saving grace
America just needs to remember from whence we came
America has to remember
O Captain! My Captain! Please remember...
