"I'm not racist but…"
"I'm not homophobic but…"
"I'm not sexist but…"
The truth is, you are,
And saying that you're not
Won’t help stop the war.
You’re not the one stopped
For walking innocently,
No police on your back, 'cause white equals saintly.
You’re not the one afraid
Of being disowned by your mother,
No pain from the mockery of being called "other".
You’re not the one who's body
Is governmentally controlled,
No blame for your rape, you're not left in the cold.
Discrimination does more than tick me off
Whether it's ignorant, known, or hidden behind a cough.
There have been too many casualties
In this war that must end.
Disdain for humans is voiced so casually
That it's become a trend.
