Hanging from the shame Of my privileged supremisist height Choking on the knowledge That until now I didn't fight
Eyes silenced hard From systemic white view All lives don't matter Until your lives matter too
A product of white history I wish I could reverse Where all mankind are equal For real not just in verse
Anger and great shame come banging on my soul Prejudiced leden centuries and inhumane forms of control
I promise from today Your fight becomes my fight too I pray you'll accept from my heart This apology to you..........
- I am sorry I am sorry on behalf of my ancestors and the part of history that affects you. I am sorry for any part I may have played through being only Non-racist instead of Anti-racist. I am sorry that I didn't educate myself earlier. I am sorry that it has taken yet another death, for me to stand up and fight. I have always shot down racism with my words, but I have failed to completely understand it. For these and more that I still have to learn, I am sorry.
