The ugly truth

We are clothed with knowledge passed down to us by our grandparents and parents,

We are groomed with the word of God by our spiritual fathers,

We are pampered with love received from our homes,

What is it we seek from the oppressors that we don’t have?

Freedom and democracy, is nothing but a fantasy,

Why is it that we need to fight for what is rightfully ours?

Why shy away from the fact that racism exists?
