    I don’t care if you like or dislike me or my people
    Hell that’s what makes this country
    Worth fighting for
    And as long as the sweat off my back
    Ain’t financing your country ***
    Caucasian collard clubs
    Id be willing to fight and die for your Wright to
    Keep it white
    But what gets me is your denial of plain old common sense
    And your continued ascertains of equality
    Wishing we would just shut up and “all get along”
    You expect me to believe that you can
    Wear a white hooded robe at night
    And a black hoodless robe by day
    But all the beliefs that accompanied the white robe
    Have been left in the trunk with the white robe
    but by day your judgments Are completely (COLOR) blind
    Have you listened to yourself !
    All I know is that in my life time
    the very same governor who as the chief executive officer of the nationally declared
    “heart of the south or Dixie as they called it in the south” physically blocked the doors of
    Rooooooooooooooooooooooooooole Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide
    in efforts to deny higher education to “Negro’s”
    and proclaimed to the world “Segregation now….. Segregation forever”
    this same mans signature is on one of my very own college diplomas
    ain’t dat a B***h
    and I ain’t all that old
    but izz spose ta believe dat
    you’s all better now!
    And we can trust ya
    Lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol
    Lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol Lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol
    a man cannot change his view without opening his eyes
    Apathy
    The bona fide antonym of love

    shazzy.


    ...not only was this a tyght scribe but it hit home
    for me in more ways than one. remembering
    george wallace & his words... "segregation now,
    tomorrow & forever"...made it even sweeter for me
    as i walked the quad @ the university of alabama...
    i remember when i arrived in tuscaloosa for my
    freshman semester... i was like "***** you george!!" :D

    thank you for sharing my dear.

    itsallLove, chile.

    being southern raised
    from back in dem dayz
    i've seen da hoods
    when they were up to no good

    THAT HAVEN'T CHANGED

    swept under the rug
    during the opening of day
    but under cover of darkness
    they come out to play

    now, it's a word game
    in this system of justice
    when they say DEATH TO THE CRIMINALS
    they be meaning JUST US

    we live in a society
    that means us no good
    with people who would hang us still
    if the system said they could

    three-fifths human
    is still not a man
    why are we begging to be accepted
    THEY CAN KISS MY BLACK ***.

    oh. i'm sorry. got a little carried away for a minute. shaz. continue your message. i'm loving the flow of this.

    Thank you for the read, glad you feelin it

    GA
    I see you didn’t miss anything, glad to see that you could feel me. I guess for those of us who have southern ties and especially those of us who have attended the segregation forever Universities, we really should have a since of how recent these events were – glad that’s all over (LOL)

    Thank you for the flow poet, glad to see you feel me.
