Has hate really become stronger than love? Are we, as a people, really that jealous, envious, selfish and hateful towards one another that murder has become the only option? Is it not easier to love everyone and worry about keeping “self” on point?
Racism and prejudice, believing that one is superior,
Because of the color of your skin,
And since others are seen as “different,”
It doesn’t matter what’s within,
If you’re black, you’re a nigger,
If you’re white, you’re a cracker,
If you’re Mexican, you’re a wet-back,
Each race having their own master,
If you’re Holiness, you’re crazy,
Because you’re running in between seats,
If you’re Baptist, you’re greedy,
Because you ask for money at every meet,
If you’re a Witness, you’re fake,
Because you will not attend a church,
If you’re an atheist, you’re just worthless,
Because for JESUS you will not work,
Blood, sweat and tears of ancestors,
Of every origin and race,
Committed themselves to a positive change,
To ensure everyone had a place,
Just because the battle of one,
Is different from the battle of another,
Does not mean one is inferior,
Due to their denomination or color,
If you’re gay, you’re fighting for rights,
Of which one may feel is deserved,
If you’re straight, you’re fighting for rights,
And no one still gets heard,
Ignoring what’s obviously clear,
Refusing to make a positive change,
Choosing hate over love,
This negativity is becoming insane,
Racism and prejudice still exist,
They are like chameleons blending in,
And it seems these diseases have no cure,
So worldwide disruption may never end.
*Racism is the belief that one race is better than another. Prejudice is a preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual facts. Racism and prejudice are not diseases we are born with, they are diseases that are given (taught). A baby does not come into the world racist or prejudice against a specific type/group of people, they are taught these immoral standards as they grow. We must learn how and teach to love one another, regardless of race, denomination, gender or sexual preference. We are one people, created differently, but we all bleed red blood, make green money, experience moments of pain and joy, we are all human. Learn to love everyone and spread the love. 1John 4:7-8 reads: (7) Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. (8) He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
