We the People of Ebony

We the people of ebony
Has written in blood our legacy
Across the pages of history
In our continuing quest for equality

From the cotton fields of slavery
To the lily white halls of bigotry
We’ve fought a racially biased economy
In a double standard society

Fighting Jim Crow laws that against us promote violence
For many years we marched in silence
We were never victims of circumstance
But always victims of racial intolerance

And now through drugs, immorality, and illegal guns
They seek to destroy us through our precious young
Through the concept of gang violence, and false pride
Our youth are committing genocide

When will we the people of ebony
Take up the stand to vigorously
Stamp out racial inequality
And demand that our people at last be free

Hello and welcome ewopper, do make yourself at home ...because you are :D
Being "free"...will come automatically, but other more vital steps must be taken. I like what you're saying poet!
I hear you poet, nice drop indeed.
