Whites Don’t Want to Know

He heard on the radio that blacks who
receive equal health care to whites
actually respond better and are
healthier than whites.
 
And whites don’t want to know.
 
From track to basketball to football to
baseball and now to tennis and golf
and soon to be domestic soccer
and maybe swimming, economics
permitting, blacks are there and
whites aren’t so much anymore.
 
And whites don’t want to know.
 
And once the scales of justice are
balanced and blacks are out of jail
and into academia, there exists the
possibility that blacks will outshine
their white counterparts in every
field from science to the arts
and humanities.
 
And whites don’t want to know.
 
Maybe whites just got too far away from
home all those millennia ago and the
genes just couldn’t keep up with
the demands of adjustment
and adaptation.
 
If so, whites just don’t want to know.
 
And when the political power and
economic power shift,
 
well, even Moses was lifted
out of De Nile probably kicking
and screaming but, thank God,
not shooting.
