Colored Prejudices

Updated on June 19, 2012

Racism is a menace dwelling in the rotten girths of mankind. After I read the hub about it today by my friend Mike I decided to spread the word against it in my own way.

Then I read another article about stopping racism by my friend Angela Brummer. All the facts and the abstract philosophies these two fantastic hubbers discussed have to be credited for my inspiration behind this verse.

I urge you to read the two hubs whose links I have given below... and commend the work of these talented and respected hub authors.



Thou hast nay right to look a man down

Thou hast nay might to put on a crown

In the court of God all fall the same

Bereft of senses is thy folly game

Your hem of sins preach corrupt services

Rancid desperation seek thy colored prejudices



Laws you put forth bear no logic

The haughtiness in you, utterly tragic

Along with your followers your den smells stale

Nothing you are but meek and frail

Thy treacherous lust bears umpteen crevices

Selfish in interest thy colored prejudices



No color no creed made us separate in existence

No man no breed is superior in acceptance

When look through his eyes of which power you not have

We look alike from above, the place of all calve

A soul of such lame bias faces hells furnaces

Shunned by the righteous thy colored prejudices



The base you choose so weak in rationale

While all is the same, you’re too blind to fall

The sky is blue for everyone’s sight

The rose smells nice to each souls Delight

A realm of deceit you hide in fleeces

Disgust they bring thy colored prejudices



The blood in my veins is red throughout

Is thy blood of another color!... I doubt

Bifurcation of brotherhood is a dire crime

Such infamy and regard not worth a dime

Uplift thyself above these mental disturbances

There is evil inside in thy Colored Prejudices




Stop! Oh Brethren! Stop for God’s sake

Have mercy on him, he weeps in thy make

Sent you as brothers not to kill your own

His displeasure evident in painful mourn

The earliest you see I yearn for your premises

Redeem thyself away from Colored Prejudices

      Hello DeAnna.... thank you for your kind words and what a provoking experience you had here...

      one should indeed ponder from the POV of the child.... who has no biases... who takes no sides... who does not differentiate...

      In fact this experience in a more elaborate way proves that ... these unholy prejudices are vices men have created for themselves.... and spoiled the holy name of god by doing so...

      Thank you for such a deep insight my friend

      A lovely composition of words reflecting the repugnant nature of racism. It is a learned emotion, to hate another because of his or her color.

      The other day whilst locking my car I glanced across at another vehicle that had a little white boy around the age of 2, fervently waving at me. I had to pass by and say hello, he was so cute. When he waved he didn't see color, he just saw another human being he liked. His mother said 'aww that's so nice'. But as I walked away I thought, in 10 years time would that little boy be so free and uninhibited to greet someone of another color? Maybe not as he would have been corrupted by the learned prejudices of society.

      I believe that in today's world where the globe is a plate and anywhere is accessible; the menace of racism exists only due to the upbringing of certain people in their environments. Often I come across people making racial jokes in front of their kids; not quite realising how they are imprinting their children with a notion of racism that will only grow with time.

      You write this from a place so very deep inside you, with such power and conviction and the truth in your words, so obvious that it puts those with prejudice on very shaky ground. The is no base, there is no rationale, there is only weakness and fear that cumulates in hate. Like Lily, I love your style, it gives authority to your words, the difference being your authority is based on love and equality. Amazing poetry, Rahul, my votes and best wishes to you.

      You are right... as long as it makes financial and political gains for people it will exist... as powerful and corrupt people will help its existence...

      I am only forwarding your message forward Brother... applying my touch to it!

      If we can spread the word and change one... we can start a worthwhile chain reaction

      Amen to the initiative brother
