They Steal Black children from their mothers’ hearts

They Changed the meaning of a gun

They Made it a crime to wear a hoodie while being Black

They Use a hashtag to justify murder

They sink the World deep.


They Translate the word Terrorist to mean Muslim

They Secretly persecute freedom of religion

They Planned attacks that threw others into fear

They Made all Muslims followers of Bin Laden

They sink the world deeper.


They Applaud a miseducated Latino

They Ensure all “Primos” deal narcotics

They Say all who enter are illegal

They Satirize noise levels and accents

They sink the world much deeper.


They Blame menstruation for a Woman's anger

They Insist females require the mastery of a cooking utensil

They Presume the job cannot be done without testosterone

They Sink the world too deep.


They Burn down humanity only to keep warm

They’ve sunk the world.
