    koreans are hated
    for entering hoods
    and building businesses
    when we refuse to build on legacies
    of built pyramids
    nails tipped in acrylic at a rapid pace
    erasing bottom lines to put
    gold in ghetto babies faces
    too many choose to do crazy
    **** and catch cases
    do bids spend time in 5 by 7
    spaces
    frustrated at what lifes pandora's
    box encases

    who are the real racists?
    hooded white men in the hood
    in protect and serve suits
    or glock popping ******* in timbo boots
    infecting the baobab tree at the roots
    all that protesting and rhetoric on mistreatment
    from others is moot / if we can't uphold
    and edify each other as histories truth

    koreans are hated for taking advantage of
    understanding the strength in family
    and we remain amnesiatic to concepts of
    unity / it takes a village to raise a child/
    but only two or three misguided cats to
    entrap children behind closed doors
    to choke on the stale air of dead dreams
    caught walking through mental landmines

    and eyes become boarded up and lives
    abandoned by hope...

    but koreans are hated for opening businesses
    in the hood.

    now! you said sumthin' then, poet!! :)

    we sometimes get so caught up in "hatin'"
    on other races... that we forget to remember
    that we ain't doin' **** for ourselves!
    this peace is an eyeopener... & i thank you
    for sharin', chile.

    itsallLove.

    and it doesn't make sense right?
    if hood dwellers thought of building
    and serving their community, there
    would be black corner stores instead
    of korean ones... don't hate cuz they
    tryin' to make money!
    they still buyin 40s from them right?
