I’m So Ashamed

I’m so ashamed to be white in America.
I had never thought of any such thing.
But it has become glaringly obvious,
that we whites have perpetuated all that’s mean
against people of color — black, brown, yellow and red.
We act as if we would rather
they all be dead.
I’m sick of namby-pamby white gripes.
Shall I hand them all baby wipes?
We are all immigrants and their children.
Our parents never graduated from high school but encouraged us on,
but angry whites want us to name villains.
Well, I won’t do that at all!
We are all one
by race, ethnicity, sexual orientation
and deserve equal treatment under God’s sun.
