Silence

Sit down

Be silent

We know what’s best

For you

We don’t need your opinion.

So sit down

Be silent

Don’t say a word.

Your word doesn’t matter.

It is nothing

We decide what you need

We decide who you are.

Since

You are beneath us.

Your lives, worthless.

We decide.

We are superior.

We are not you.

We may both bleed red.

But our red matters more than yours

Because our skin is lighter than yours.

So sit down, black man.

Be silent

You don’t matter.
