Race Baiting: Divide and Conquer
Division in this country is growing wider, by design.
Wolves in sheep's clothing. Look close and you will find.
When one has no substance to further their agenda,
they deal out the race cards with accusing splendor.
Standing tall for true freedom; President Lincoln and Dr. King.
Yes! Both were republicans! Let true freedom ring!
The great Reverend, Dr. King, shared his magnificent dream.
Never would he have been a part of recent rioting scenes.
Liberal race baiters, never miss opportunities
to neath the facade of civil rights, divide our communities.
What do hate groups, Black Panthers and Ku Klux Klan, share?
Both were born of democrats, but does anyone care?
Two quotes, so racially vile, never would I repeat;
democratic president Lyndon B. Johnson boldly dared speak.
Although, those words sum up the truth of how they operate,
by the time enough of us figure it out, it will probably be too late.
The same libs that shout, "Don't label me!" and, "You're all racist!",
call conservative black men, Uncle Tom, right to our faces!
They are not concerned with the poor, be we black or white.
They are a fast growing cancer, taking over all of our lives.
" We the Sheeple" with the wool over our eyes;
divided and conquered; led to slaughter by liberal lies.
Just because one shares the same color skin,
doesn't mean, within the heart, they are spirit of kin.
Neither, that one be different in appearance,
should deem our hearts be at a distance.
ALL should be free to voice their opinions without fear of ridicule.
