There are no breaking news at the moment

 

black-lives-matter

White racists! Supremacists!
Yes! We are dark!… Black!
Egoistic imperialists!
You are not on the right track!

From Asia and Africa
We were herded as slaves
To serve your America
From our birth to graves

Without our toil and strain
How can you make ‘ America great again’ ?
Without our body and brain
How much can America gain?

MLK and Carl Lewis
Mohd Ali and Williams sisters
Brought laurels to the nation
Black power and determination

Yet, you blacklist us! Blackmail us!
And whenever required, blackjack us!
Remember! To sustain your plutonomy
We are the backbone of economy

We absorb sorrow like black holes
And your thrashing on our souls
Without our support day and night,
You cannot live peacefully … White!

If you hate us and smack
We shall fight back !
If you shoot and attack
We know how to thwack!
