Déjà Vu Racial Disparity

These are not events that took place very far in the past

These are obviously ongoing racial gaffes and contrasts

Where human beings are bombarded and mistreated

Where human beings are veraciously discriminated

Against, where politicians with supercilious smiles

And where election cheaters with camouflaged styles

Expel and reject Black people such as Africans and Haitians

And these same biased lawmakers welcome Ukrainians

With open arms, because Ukrainians are Caucasians

Because Ukrainians are Europeans and white

In your judicious eyes, is this right?

Black people are human beings too

Haitians are people too

Africans are people too

Ukrainians are people too

Are White human beings people too?

Please say something. Please write something

Please utter something. Please sing something

Singing ‘We shall overcome’ is insufficient

Not enough. You call yourselves ‘Christians’

Pour more Tetrahydrozoline HCL 0.05% in your eyes

In order to see clearly that the moon is not circled with hollow pies

From afar or from space, all humans are infinitesimally congruent

All human beings have red blood in their veins

And all humans are jam-packed with flaws and sins

Moreover there exists neither white blood, nor black blood

Blue blood is originating from chasmal whims, far from abroad

Fair-minded Readers ponder

And conscious minded Poets wonder

Apparently, Republicans are pushy and obvious

And Democrats are wishy-washy and dubious

Human beings must not be chased by wild horsemen

All humans must be welcome by clergy men and women

Anywhere on Earth

The Globe is everybody’s turf.
