“My Name Is Racism” Poem

I saw this video in the Uproar Poetry Group on Facebook last week and have to share. I think this is a wonderful, thought-provoking piece, written by Rakin Niass

Transcribed the first verse in the video for you guys (see below)

Please like and share.

My Name is Racism by Rakin Niass

My name is racism
I live in your thought
My best word is ‘division’
My philosophy
There’s a hierarchy of people
We’re not equal
It’s true this ain’t malarkey
I make people think that white is beauty
that’s my duty
So if you’re white you’re snooty
If you’re black than you better stay back cos…
you lack the whiteness of skin that the world’s worshiping
