In this day and age we have this reoccurring issue

Individuals of all generations advocating for a culture of language abuse

Instances of linguistically supported oppression

Whose only intention is to condemn its receivers into a depression

Toxic tongues with the intent to poison your thinking

Promoting all things vile, so fast, nearly blinking

Tell me why words like “****” offend you more

Then the degrading usage of the word “*****”

I’m sick of people using skin tone and gender to map out one’s prospects

Suggesting that not everyone deserves a chance to reach success

Institutionalized prejudice

Don’t stand for any of this

Every individual is beyond just a word

Strive to be the definition that they’ve never seen or heard

Become the human being that they could never be

Resist the forced oppression and strive to be free
