Whitelash

The genteel become surreal

When white supremacy is named

Clash and slash

It’s a real whitelash

 

Why can’t we white folks

Understand

Its not about us

Our ideas our feelings

 

 

Listen learn

Center on the whole

Swallow defensiveness

And remember to breathe

 

Our advice is not needed

Our opinions are fluff

We can cheer brave folks on

Offer support and yes love

 

This whole world is a mess

But enough is enough

Resistance is reality

Breaking through at long last.
