False Promises

Freedom is bondage here

America is supposed to the the land of freedom for every man and woman

That is a lie

Freedom is for the caucasian male here being the dominant race.

For African-Americans these is no freedom being shot down by the people who are to protect us.

For Asians there is no freedom being cut away from their endevors into success

For natives there freedom was taken away when Columbus discovered America

For Muslims their freedom is cut off by the stereotype that they are all terrorists

Will there ever be a time where be people are judged for who they are and not by the color of their skin.

America just gives off false promises that many people take the bait for.
