Black and White

Your existence is never trivial
Your sins are always forgivable
Your crimes are all permissible
No matter how despicable
You’ll never be held accountable
You’ll never be held responsible
You’ll never be deemed a criminal
According to the White Principle

But you are not untouchable
You are not unstoppable
Your ship is not unsinkable 
And your race is not invincible
And we are not incapable
And we are not invisible
And we will not be vulnerable
Because our race is not divisible

Oppression is deplorable
Racism is unacceptable
Rights should be reciprocal
And all lives should be valuable

For a future to be visible,
A change is highly pivotal
Because according to OUR principle,
Black and white are miscible
