Why Do You Judge Me?
Arely Valdez

Why do you tend to judge me
cause I'm of different race.
Why do you tend to hate me
cause I'm from a different place.

Why is it that you think I'm stupid
because of where I'm from.
In my own opinion,
You have classified yourself as dumb.

You act as if I'm a criminial
evil and a crook.
And all this because
your job from you I took..

All this hatred that you show
is nothing more than envy.
Why can't you just see
that you are not better nor worse than me.

I was born in this country,
I grew up just around the corner.
The difference between you and I,
is that my father crossed that border.

He has struggled in the past
to make our lives all better.
I admire him for that
why do u have to be a hater.

And even though I respect you,
You show me nothing more than racism.
When will this all stop
When will you stop your criticism?

We are no longer that minority..
Nor will we be for ever more.
We will one day rise above low standards
that's what we're fighting for.

So I suggest you learn to love my kind
and just be all that you can be.
Cause all your racism and your criticism
can no longer bother me....

Racism
Wayne Leon Learmond

Racism
Eats you up inside.

Plays upon
you're insecure mind.

Perceptions of threats
that are not there.

You hate his dark skin
and the black man's hair.

You hate the white skin
of the blue-eyed boy.

This hatred -
you taste -

it does more
than annoy.

It consumes
you're very
identity.

Eats you up
psychologically.

Prepares you
to murder
indescriminately.

And destroys
all who are touched
so
tragically...
