Our Vacancy

Red, Black, Yellow - Brown or White
During the day or - late at night

No justification can make it right.

The color of skin is unimportant
Being as one to remain accordant

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 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.
