White Pride

White Pride
They say 
my brown skin 
is a trigger 
mechanism 
for hollow points &
billy clubs. 
Freeze! they say. 
I'm stuck on 
this dopamine. 
It gives disheartening 
dreams. 
I see things 
with extra senses 
they say things like
my brown skin
 isn't light enough 
I protest saying 
my black is a beautiful thing
 but they shout 
get your fucking hands up!
 So I abide, falsely
thinking I'll stay alive
while my ethnicity 
is dying inside. 
white pride, white pride
written on a picket sign
Is this what I chant
 in order to survive?
I don't know, 
but I'm dying inside.
Trying to stay alive
