Inequality

Pay me what you owe me 

Unequal pay 

Unequal love 

Unequal education

Unequal respect 

Unequal in the eyes of the law

Dreams Deferred

Yes we can, yes I can, yes I did

Dreamer keep dreaming, dream for the future, no dream too small, some don’t dream at all

Sweet dreams sweet lover of mine see you in your dreams

Financial Aid Woes

I’m poor, I can’t pay, IDFWU Sally Mae 

You took me for all I had before I had anything at all

Financial aid, aid me 

I’m wounded (well my credit is)

The doorway to my future is blocked, unblock me allow me access to the essential building blocks in life

 White supremacy 

 White man you’re not better than me my skin is a blessing you cannot use me with your supremacy you think you’re so supreme American horror story the next supreme you scary you devour the very beings you set out to become white man you’re not so bad said my third uncle through marriage he ain’t blood blood white man your hands are covered in it look at it. Look at your face why is it the same color?

UNITY (Queen latifah voice) 

Uniting a people who hate each other

United States, united we stand

We stand on the backs of others who crush the spirits of those who are different

Divided we fall 

We were divided way before we fell 

We fell because there was nothing to hold us together 

Is all lost? I mean, how could it really be?

Unity 

Unite together 

Unite in peace 

Peace is the answer 

Peace or deuces 

Deuces to you 

You’re untrustworthy 

Deuces to the alternative facts 

Two fingers to the fairytales 

Here’s a wild idea: maybe we can be there for each other the way we use to be, you know, to really get shit done.
