Racisim is real

Coming from the Caribbean,

Jamaica to be exact.

I never saw colour,

I never knew race,

I never knew it could be such disgrace.

I knew of social classes,

now that was prominent,

but still it never meant,

that we had to be bent,

on who is who,

and what is what,

and we were content.

To America I go!

to the world were my dreams have hope?

where opportunities are endless?

NOPE!

This is where I noticed colour,

that my complexion really hovered.

What’s this they talk about?

The blacks, the whites, the hispanics, the “you name it”?

I just DON’T GET IT!

Am I being too ignorant, is there I’m something missing?

WHY?

WHY, do we need to point this out?
