Poem: Get your knee off our necks!

There is a correlation between slavery and racism and I thought that the Rev Al Sharpton Eulogy at the George Flyod’s commemoration of death was really inspiring. I wrote a poem to sum up how I felt about it.

History is a weapon. Let’s learn to do better so we can be better.

We always felt your knee on our necks, tried to tell you so many time, but you never listened and respected us. We have enough of your racists comments and excuses.
