Privilege

White privilege runs deep.
Down to my core.
It touches everything I do from the food I buy
to all I’ve been given and more.
I’m not here to apologize but I’m here to say-
maybe we’re the ones keeping it this way?

Theres white and theres black and theres brown and blue,
but what do these colors really mean to you?
You’re blind to race you say?
Well how does that solve the problems people of color face every day?
Nobody is looking for a tearful apology nor a sorrowful plea of guilt,
just a little bit of conscience and hey-
maybe don’t be someone keeping it this way?
