The ghettos were created

Updated on October 14, 2013

The ghettos were created
the ghettos were made
giving all sorts of people
reasons to hate

Black men pushing
that terrible dope
with as a result
life without hope

But do you know
where they got if from
where they got their drugs
that make them do wrong?

The white man produced
and then spread it around
to justify pushing
black folk to the ground

When enslavement failed
they sought another way
to keep the black people
forever in chains

Oppressed by so many
hated by even more
to what purpose serves this madness
what in Earths’ name is it for?

And then to think
that the black man was first
on this here planet
on this here earth

The human race
of black descent
this is true
so shall we now end?

This ridiculous thing
called racial hate
for this foolishness is
so out of date

We are all one race
so let’s get it on
just like Marvin
sings in his song

The ghettos were created
the ghettos were made
by the white man who wants
us all to hate

      Thank you so much Ubanichijioke. I come from a courageous clan and am very grateful for that heritage. Injustice is something I just cannot swallow.

      And in the end Truth shall prevail.

      PlatinumOwl4, thank you for reading, commenting and the vote up. I just can't sit back, see all the injustice, the lies and then pretend it's all good. I just wasn't raised that way.

      And Sylvia, these things need to be said in this world. You're more than welcome and thank you for reading, commenting, the vote up etc.

      Thank you so much!!!

      Love and hugs for the both of you.

      This is a spectacular hub and I vote it up. I can't understand, Oh! but I can understand why you have not had any comments. It would cause people to think and not just react to misinformation. Then those who continue to follow stupidity blindly would have to look for some other form of stupidity to follow. Thank you again for writing this hub.
