(To white liberals who act as if they’re saving “people of color” yes, I’m referring to you Barbara)
You cater to those
Who already follow
You cater to their shame.
You offer more division
a laugh out loud frame
as if you were a comedy act
with eminent domain
but nothing’s funny about
a laugh track of historical racism and blame.
Your bestseller profits from
Preaching to the choir
You tell them to hate themselves
the Oprah show contestant wannabes
They’re your eyes white shut audience
just like you taught them, they expect you to.
You’re cashing in
on the politically correct gimmick.
I see your shell shame game
white conquerer lame
with endless entitled followers
to chant black lives matter
as if only white voices would be heard
You publish statistics of white privilege
that anyone could easily google
while you pretend you invented it
just like George Lucas
You haven’t helped anyone
White Black or Invisible
You reached none
that needed to realize their privilege
selling out sponsored by the already converted.
You just helped to subdivide
The already fatally divided.
