The Ugly Truth of Racism

  The ugly truth of racism,It's a deep-rooted disease,That spreads like wildfire,And brings society to its knees. It's the hate and prejudice,That seeps into our souls,And as much as we deny it,It's a problem that unfolds. We see it in the headlines,And on the streets we roam,Oppression and discrimination,That tears apart our home. We must rise up together,And fight this evil curse,For we cannot build a future,On a foundation that's perverse. Let's embrace each other's differences,And celebrate our unique ways,For it's only through acceptance,That we'll bring an end to these dark days. The ugly truth of racism,It's a battle we must win,For a world free of oppression,Is a world where we all can begin.
