The Great Race
America the greatest
Where everyone is racing to the top
But how unfair that some had a head start to the Race
Africans did not gain their freedom until 1865 (The Civil War)
Mexicans forced to change identities in 1848 (Treaty of Hildago-Guadalupe)
Asians discriminated publicly until the 1940s (the Great White Walls)
Indians tricked into--esentially--slavery throughout the 1900s (Indentured Servants)
Although this is history,
Does it not define a head start for some in the race, while others are held behind?
We all come from different cultures
What we are taught and learned
And one day
We will all start equally
In the Race
