This is dedicated to those that live and spread hate.

Fear
Do u even see it?

That black cloud that is us creeping ever so slowly over the whiteness that is your palace of hate

Fear

It makes you close your eyes, cover your ears and shout “Animals!” as we wait at the gate, our truth in the words we shout at your deaf, dumb ears

Your self appointed pedestal of white domination is dripping red with the blood of our brothers and sisters

Your hatred weeps like blisters, the salve our tears, our pain

Who are the savage beasts?  The monsters with their trigger happy fingers pointed straight at our sons, our brothers, our fathers!

You reap what you sow….

Fear

Your fear of a multi hued world pressing in, taking over as your Tea Party, KKK club smolders

Your venom poisoning you from the inside

Go ahead and take that slippery ride of hate; far be it for me to berate 

You, massa, sir, whitey, cracker, human who bleeds just like me, don’t you see!

We meet your fear with strength 

Your hate with love

Your ignorance with knowledge 

We will march until the sound of our footsteps haunt every dream you dare to have

We will fight each day with every breath until our peace is had

Until Our justice is equal to your justice

Our pain equal to yours

Through the demise of your humanity we shall rise 

We meet your fear unabashed

With nothing to lose

And everything to gain
