BLACK 'N' WHITE

Black and white are
never of skin
but of coal and snow
the colours nature
distinct show 
which is pure and
which is sin? 




Short Racism poem by Jack Clark| Details | |

Our Vacancy

Red, Black, Yellow - Brown or White
During the day or - late at night
-	When Life is lost
-	It’s too great a cost
No justification can make it right.

Short Racism poem by Tim Ryerson| Details | |

Different Strokes for Different Folks

I am white
you are red
you are yellow
you are black
you are brown
“suffer the little children
to come unto me”
Jesus loves the little children…

UBC

UBC: United Brotherhood of Color

It is not a group but a movement
Working together for improvement
The color of skin is unimportant
Being as one to remain accordant

Short Racism poem by Haile Tesfaye| Details | |

Discrimination

The flood of blood that flows like rain
In our vain is red but we still reject one
Another based on skin color. When racism 
invades the beautiful memories of people fades. 

Short Racism poem by Cameron Hartley| Details | |

Gold

When I close my eyes...
I can't see the 
Color of his skin.
But he feels like 
The color
Gold-
Tastes like
The color
Honey-
Sounds like
His breath is
The color of 
Light.

Short Racism poem by Gerald Kithinji| Details | |

Anti-Racist

I clung, yes, clung
To that alien stupor
Sapped that suave subastral quintessence
That makes us 
Cry…
And seldom 
Laugh.
And I woke up
Rabid
As familiars quirked:
“He will bite them,
these racists!”

short sweet to the point

people put on masks to hide the face of reality but it does not hide the actuality of the soul when rattled i do not flee i battle on to the end in anger a beating of the body is better than beating to a image of the men we were raised to be

Short Racism poem by Syed Imon Rizvi| Details | |

Martin Luther King Junior

Martin Luther King, Jr.

When innocent dies,
Whole universe cries,
Even of dear earth,
We can hear, outcries,
But selfish human being,
Never even sighs.

Short Racism poem by Honestly JT| Details | |

One World

Love is not a color,
No hue, neither a race.
All of our blood is the same, 
That runs deep within our veins.

If we could lift up each other,
And know that we all care.
If we help our sisters and brothers,
There's a bond that we'll share.

Short Racism poem by Shanity Rain| Details | |

pretending

Visions of old 
   Visions of new
coming silently
   begging through

Greed and power
   betrayal strong
refusing rejection
  motives wrong


unseen spirit 
  sends whispers
answers for hatred 
  lies within a narcissistic face

changing many profiles , going unnoticed, resenting , pretending.

LION'S ROAR



No! 
Brave I am not, my
Friends,
It’s only my indignation for 
The injustice committed against 
So many good people*
That
Makes me, for justice, like a lion 
To ROAR!

*Many people are not fairly treated for they are good!
Jusice should prevail here!



Short Racism poem by Brad Nicolas| Details | |

Blood On The Leaves

Blood on the Leaves

It makes me sad
To think, then mad
To be associated with them,
only by color.
You play us like they judged that man.
The blood on the leaves;
Warm and full of life.
Don’t put that on me, Ricky Bobby.

We lost someone today.
Sad is all this is,
Pushing us 100 years in the past.
I can’t imagine that town’s shame.

Short Racism poem by Aiyah de Torres| Details | |

WALL OF DIVISION

                      

                       People holding hands of one another,
                             from different lands and races,
                                     break wall of divison.
