Spoken Word: Facing the Truth

Is it racism or men playing high school bullying
In the company of peers truth can be terrifying
Fear does not live here
The phrase 'Columbus was a liar'
From the mouth of a black man was like I cried fire
Truth be told he was a thieving scoundrel too
Those ignited hidden racist wrath came sliding through
Berik took the high road saying 'it can't be proven'
His ledgers exposed what he boast his hated action woven
Excuses, lets talk human here, past, present or nationality
Respect and love even pre caveman used, why the stupidity

Dano defending enslavement raping and pillaging I get
"You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette"
I learned long ago to check a persons racist trait
In the company of their peers raise the subject and wait
Like oil and water it'll separate, the real person will show up
Racism like buoyancy will always come to the top
Killing innocent people who offer you love is savagery
Face it Columbus was a liar, thief, practiced skullduggery
Defending a racist, crude, spineless human, advantage taker
Is saying if your child wasn't there for rape you would've offer

Time stands still as racism roams seeking and utilizing authority
Today as yesterday it's never right victimizing the minority
The sweltering crevice of strangulation too find the Blackman
Even after a very able token leader left a dedicated forward plan
They defend an aged demagogue privileged with racist traits
Insisting in this modern day he'll adjust the constitution gates
Siding with ignorance to appease race and or peers
Armed unscrupulous lawmen implement death to hide fears
Accept I can't breathe or even a dash cam showing innocence
For any Blackman every move made is aggressive relevance

On the backdrop of slavery, white supremacy flourished
The injustice of pardoning his peers freedom is malnourished
Ignore amendments giving free speech to demonstrate or kneel
Like a ship in a storm on the ocean he broke the keel
Hiding behind reality using the flag and anthem as a prop
Ignoring that citizens are victims by color on this land they'll drop
As if professional athletes do not pay tax and vote, or voiceless
Iron sharpen iron racist ignorance raining from above is not priceless
Instead of calling out the victims how about the perpetrators
Injustice has no color
Racism has no shame only vindicators
