Racism is around me everywhere

Of human ignorance I am almost in despair For racism is around me everywhere But like they say sheer ignorance is bliss Just like Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss. Some people carry their honour in a flag, and of their Nationality they brag. They feel superior and they differentiate, and against those who are different they discriminate. So many people still judged by there race, For such there never ought to be a place ' A fair go' those untruthful words I do recall, There is no such thing as a 'fair go for all'. Though we live in a so called democracy Of racism we never will be free. They judge you by where you come from and, The color of your skin. For many equality and respect seems impossible to win. It's been awhile since the days of Martin Luther King Jr. His name to it has a familiar ring. If against Racism he dd not choose to strive Today the great man he would be alive. So many holding the reins of power not spirtually aware, and Racism is around me everywhere. And racism only leads to division and war, Just goes to show how ignorant some are.
