Their actions seem far more absurd.

never of skin

distinct show 
which is pure and

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.

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 | |


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 | |


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

the teacher

drinks wine after school
has far too many

eruptions from

	small pitchers
	small bowels

	paper cuts

	that	 	terrible mother

	racism filtered
	a 6 year old prism

and crayons

	all over

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

Murderous crimes
Getting high
Being rude
Teen pregnancy
Social equality
Jaundiced eyes
Deceit and lies

As Time Goes, Goodbye

I wish there was a do-over;
God knows more poets loved her.
Even when racism existed,
So did her paper and pen.
I miss that Black Hawaiian;
I hope she's still writing.
Her skill is so unique,
Along with her beauty.

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

I Hate Monroe

I hate this place.
Man, I have to go.
I hate the racism.
I hate the haterism.
I hate not being heard.
I hate Monroe.
Man, I hate the word.

I hate this place.
And that’s a fact.
Once I leave here
I will never look back.

Short Racism poem by Melissa Ross| Details | |


I can only see,
What the physical world has taught me,
Corruption and racism,
Censorship and war,
My heart is torn,
My mind is worn,
In a world of hate,
Are there believers?
Believers still?
To quell the sorrows,
Of those whose pain,

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 | |


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.

Where Does It All End

Idol Worship
Broken Promises
Where does it all end?
It ends Where Love begins.

Brave I am not, my
It’s only my indignation for 
The injustice committed against 
So many good people*
Makes me, for justice, like a lion

My wish

If I had one wish
It would be to
have world peace
no more killing each other 
no more suffering and pain
no more head and heart aches
no more wars
no more racism
no more crying
the sun will shine
Peoples' lives will be filed
with nothing but joy and happiness
If this could come true
The world would be a better place

Short Racism poem by Matt Ancient| Details | |

How long

how long
how long must we suffer 
our life's in pain and sorrow
because we are black or white
we are blind by racism

for how long
how long must we suffer
because we are not Christians or Muslims
we are blind by religion

for how long
how long must we suffer in poverty
because of all these illusion
we are blind by misinformation

Short Racism poem by Alayande Stephen| Details | |


Many are them in the diaspora
Wandering in other's wilderness
Laundering their battered image 
Conquering the world like a mirage

Mustering last energy for a return home
Pondering over the puzzle of un-uttered racism
Yet, dark in our black
Of the black origin
But not of the black brain.

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

Short Racism poem by Alrio MIller| Details | |

Parasitic Life Form

It‘s alive!
A life form 
Thriving on hatred
Reaped from societies
Greatest blunder 
Like lighting
Follows thunder  
We are following our ancestors 
Reproducing civilization   
Disregard the fact
That we are all human
our blood is red
I smirk when I’m contented 
And shed tears when I’m poignant
We are all equal
cease  this schism 
And trounce racism

Short Racism poem by Kiara Lowdog| Details | |

Through my eyes

Through my eyes,
I see a country torn
Torn by racism
Torn by selfishness
Torn by friendships failing
Torn by no one loving thy neighbor
Torn by one kingdom upon the next
Killing and enslaving each other for reasons beyond what the mind could ever conceive
Brutally torchering for pure revenge
So..Through my eyes
I see this world... DYING!

A Deviant Devil 86

A deviant devil with the number 86 blog,
Deviant art with a deviant type of log,
Try to teach the bible to an angel with one hand,
But fingers dipping and licking satans' land?


deviant with his racism jokes that are crass,
Bothering good girls and and an angel lass,
Laughing bananas with a needle whore,
Not throwing the dark wolves out his door

Short Racism poem by Rob Carter| Details | |

Justice is Colour Blind

A blot they want to wash, detergents do not work
Ineffectual, institutional and cover ups a stir
Excuses abound, squirming hierarchy found 
"Its just a darkie, why so narky"
The corridors would sound
It still goes on, gone several years 
Distrustful patronising leaders
A scurge we hope that does not surge 
To Nazi ways and olden days
Where races they would purge

[In High School, this took place].

The White Boy said (excuse my French), if I fall in love with V’lena, I would be a 
V’lena stated if I denied my love for Butch, I would be a damn fool. 

At once, both responded you are a racist.

Short Racism poem by Miriam Fredericks| Details | |

Above Everything

Above racism, nepotism, communism, sexism,
ambition, pollution, domination, seclusion,
God reigns!

Way above segregation, self-promotion, 
physical illumination, elevation,
apartheid, genocide,  cyanide, religious pride
God abides!

Floating above Coptic, Catholic  politics,
toxic doctrine,  elitist foolishness, 
putrid imaginings,
God in His Omnipotent Majesty reigns!

Short Racism poem by Jessica Wong| Details | |


Daily a victim of racism dies
While our government accuses them wrongly with lies
The air is punctuated by their screams and their cries
In response to their pleas we choose not to reply
They beg us for mercy, they beg us to try
But we simply say you're just another guy
They take it with courage but tears wet their eyes
For the world sits in silence and cares not for their lives

Short Racism poem by Kiara Lowdog| Details | |


Is that what you think you are?
Because your skin is lighter?
Because your hair is shorter?
Because your life is better?
Because your voice is deeper?
I thought you knew
Knew about racism
Knew about sexism
Knew about how it is wrong
Knew how we all are the same inside
Since you are SUPERIOR,
We have no equality to you
Bow to the superior

Short Racism poem by Mark Gravett| Details | |

The way it is

Looks likes its a tuff crowd tonight,
 and yes I have stage fright,
 but that's quite alright.
 Because my words
 will always deliver a powerful bite. 

So matter what,
I will always fight racism
first with my left
 then the knock with my right.

All this comes straight from my dome 
where all my thoughts can freely roam.
And if don't like what you hear,
 then I suggest you stay home.

Short Racism poem by Lauren Smith| Details | |


Sorrow are the memories we now all share
Understanding we want to have peace with you
Forseeing that there would be such a spark
Fighting for that love and all it can do
Emotions of anger and fear fill our hearts 
Racism was well on its way to being a thing of the past
Inside we have curled up or thrown punches 
Nightmares on God's soil are not unsurpassed
Grieving all the lives lost so fast

The Price of Racial Equality

There was no true freedom in this nation. We were allowed to go with emancipation. However, we afterwards fought discrimination. Ubiquitous was racism and segregation. Often with the rising sun of the dawn, we would find a smoldering cross on our lawn. What has been the price of racial equality? It has been a struggle as tough as can be. inspired by another member's poem

Seperating Wedge.....



                  the point

                  social bias

                  we fall into place

                  Indoctrinated system

                  -ism's become a wedge

                  classism a form of racism

                  minds eye trained toward color

                  gold and green....bold with greed....

Racism Persists

It has been a century and a half since emancipation. However, stubbornly persisting is racial discrimination. Despite many anti-discrimination laws today, people are still breaking and ignoring them anyway. Racists from all over are continuing to disobey. The situation is just too perplexing to me. Why can't we ever learn to live in harmony? inspired by another member's poem

Short Racism poem by William MacEachern| Details | |


Inhumane was said 
Six million dead 

Inhumane we dare 
At Jeffrey Dahmer 
Kidnapper, killer, evil embalmer 

Inhumane it read 
Black man dead 
Dragged by the feet 

Inhumane we say 
A young man who's gay 
Left dead in the hay 

Inhumane we cry  
So many die 
In burning buildings 
From terror in the sky 

I hear say 
And only humans 
Act this way

Basketball is for Everybody

Telling blacks not to come to a basketball game. That is such a racist remark and a shame. Making such a comment is an absurdity. In the professional basketball community, African-Americans make up the great majority. Those words said were a public disgrace. Everywhere in any professional sports place, room should be made for any color and race. from a news story found on

Dark Light

The light is always there to help the forlorn. However what about the Dark Light. 
The Society of Light caught in the darkness. On the surface all is calm and quit. 
But underneath is chaos and pandemonium. The Dark Light will control the 
world if we just stand by and watch as it passes us one by one. We must put a 
stop to all the terrible wars and racism in this world. Otherwise, the Dark Light 
will consume us all.

My dear friends,
it's me a blind guy,
and some times wise
to write what you need,
and sharpen your brain.

My topic of today,
it's to warn all of you,
to fight for peace,
rights and  racism
to avoid future wars.

My dear friends,
the whites and the blacks,
unity is the key,
to develop the world,
and keeps it's joy.

Unite as one,
and work as one,
the world needs peace,
unity and love,
the gifts from God.

Short Racism poem by Kat Crane| Details | |


When the world runs out of tears
When every lie has been told
When all the bullets have been fired
And there’s no more homeless in the cold

When all the landfills have been emptied
When all the species again thrive
When all the starving have had supper
And in no more pain we writhe

When all our children have loving parents
When all racism has been hanged
When we finally pull together
We will reach our promised land

Short Racism poem by Hector Leyva| Details | |


Different people, 
Different races.
Different customs,
Different faces.

One world with many,
Many races, one species.
Differences are plenty,
But only seen by dummies.

Differences make us unique,
Yet we are the same.
Each other we critique,
Based on differnces in physique.

Snowflakes are beautiful,
But yet no two are the same.
For our differces we should be greatful,
For hate and racism we should feel shame.

Short Racism poem by Joshua Butler| Details | |

The Stereotype

Live by Stereotype,
Die by Stereotype,
Living superficially with double standards,
Racism, sexism, Haters,
Hating on who you want to be,
Who you were,
and who you are,
Biasing opinions on bad examples,
Not wanting to learn the truth,
The truth silently hiding behind the exterior,
The reality,
Blind to looks,
Based on actions, attitudes, and personality,
Based on honesty, pride, and intelligence,
Based on...
The truth...

Short Racism poem by Moses Samandar| Details | |


Rebuild Peterborough
Create festivity
Increase funding
Increase interest
Increase the life in the small city
The city everyone forgot
The city with multi-cultureleness
Stop the racial tension
Stop the racism
Stop the crime
Begin a new age of Peterborough
With trendy life
A life of happiness
A city of peace
A city of worship
A city of life
Stop racism
We can work together to make this city better
For a new Peterborough
