Quite Simply -- Racism Is Animalistic: A Poem

It is nothing but animalistic caution

suspecting anyone different from us

just having evolved to a racist emotion

and causing that familiar inter-racial fuss.


Have you ever seen any tigers join lions

although they are both from family of cats

so it doesn't take knowing much of science

to understand why all Reps hate Democrats.


And it doesn't take color of the skin

for having such a paranoid suspicion

nations, states, and provinces are akin

adopting that mutually intolerant position.


For, people just need someone to hate

nothing about it could really be more true

a race as good a target as a southern state

neighbor, in-law, religion, any politician will do.


So, why don't we admit this simple fact

rather than go smart about different others

not the only aspect where as animals we act

but well, whatever we don't face, it never bothers.


It took some long evolving from animal to man

but those eons weren't enough for so many of us

why not try to be spiritual beings as best as we can

for that alone would make obsolete all this racial fuss.

      Hi Val. All I know is that God made all of us and loves us all the same. Not one of us is better than the other. I hope more people read your poem..

      Blessings to you.

      Brenda -- It's great to hear your story of the big change in your perception of racism, and I salute to the flexibility of your mind which allowed it.

      As you can see, so many people are still stuck with the indoctrination of their "superiority" based on the skin color. Such folks would find someone else to hate if it was not about another race -- because they simply can't live without hating.

      It's unfortunate that ANY strong emotion is addictive, and they don't realize that to them hate and anger feel just as stimulating as a strong coffee.

      Wonderful poem. I loved this part, "Have you ever seen any tigers join lions

      although they are both from family of cats

      so it doesn't take knowing much of science

      to understand why all Reps hate Democrats."

      I actually grew up in a small town where only caucasian people lived, and other people of color had to live outside its' boundaries in the country.

      I was surrounded by racism, even in a high school with only two or three kids of different race.

      As i grew older, I became my own person and taught myself to realize racism was wrong. It is good to have friendships without being taunted by the burden of not being allowed to talk to someone of another race. ( I got grounded if someone even called me on the phone, as a child)

      My parents gave come a long way, but I still see a bit of racism when they talk in private.

      Thank you for voicing this concern.

      Great write.
