Some Serious Questions

is it true

that i live in a society

filled with

white privilege and ignorance

to the point that

cultural appropriation

is mistaken for

‘appreciation’?

 

am i racist

for calling you racist

or am i just

disillusioned with

the idea of bowing down

and accepting the

inferiority cloak

you forced so many

dark-skinned survivors

to wear

before me?

 

is being

pro-black

wrong?

is loving myself

(as a woman of color

who doesn’t fit

the eurocentric,

constricting

standards of beauty)

wrong?

 

is being

sick and tired

of the prison/military

industrial complex that

preys on the poor

being

a traitor?
