Poems about Race

Divided, frightened, and slightly uninformed
In all US history, we’ve never been good At treating people the way that we should.
Person of color. I am a person of color in a land full of free, white men. 
Is America the Greatest? Some might say, “it used to be” When we fought for rights and humanity
A for all the times I've been profiled for my skin color.
We refer to America as America the great The country of inequality divided by hate
  My country is beautiful and free -
With every step I thrive With every word I preach I strive
All rise for the honorable Judge Ethics. *force everyone in the classroom to stand up and then sit down after a pause* Okay, so today in
America the Great, America the strong. Has it always been that way? No way!
