Inflictions of whiteness

A white Santa showed a child the skin tone of the top brass
A white doll to an innocent black girl contrasts ugliness

A white wedding was beauty redefined as a cloak on a lass
A white Jesus, before we repented, repainted righteousness

A white collar is how we elevated and segregated a social class
A white angel flew from heaven and misrepresented its race

A black me is fighting a mind conditioned to be last
A black me is sometimes a victim of an innocence of whiteness
