Person of Colour
How is that not the same as calling me coloured?
How is that not the same as labeling me; nigger
The “little nigger baby”
Honestly, I think knowledge of history has traumatized me
I think the saying “ignorance is bliss” finally makes sense
There is a reason why some folks are blissful…
Living in this country I feel as though slavery never ended
It just evolved
It just changed form
But, it’s still very much here
Segregation and apartheid like circumstances still exist
They just got better at hiding it
I still meet the house slaves
Who swear upon their lives that they are “free”
That’s it. The end.
