Politics of denial
It's always the same story, never a true story
These stories of power and stories of glory
They fill me with rage, they fill me with fury
A culture unthreatened has room to grow,
while it beats down others, left with nowhere to go
They didn't "evolve," they were destroyed
Shoved into the crevices of history and into the void
It's the politics of denial,
A nation where those of color aren't even given a trial
I want to one day live in a country where the severity of the crime isn't determined by the color of your skin.
When with equality conquer? When will it win?
