Being black


Being muslim

Just being me

Or you just being you

We’re all supposed to be on the same team

At least in my head

But some people are close minded

And want to see some of our teammates dead

Here’s something Jermine Hodge, a young black man said

“I’m just like you

a human

red blood


a moving figure

Why should you treat me

Like I’m about to pull the trigger?”

Over the centuries blacks have been discriminated

Because of the color of their skin

Causing a whole population of HUMANS to become sadder

But at the end of the day we all bleed the same color

So why should what’s on the outside even matter?

Being black, that automatically means you deal drugs

And all the homies you hangout with, they’re just a bunch of  thugs

Who play with guns and are thieves

Who gets chicks knocked up with their baby and then just leaves

Black people are the ones who walk around with sagging pants

The ones who get bullied by the police over “suspected suspicion” and not remaining a “proper stance”

If they walk around in the wrong neighborhood it gives that scared white woman a good reason to dial

But really it’s just a good opportunity to flash the blue lights and racially profile.

People say brown kids were born to end war between the two races

But people who are racist at heart, won’t stop their cruel ways

just because they see more brown faces

I don’t experience racism?

That’s what they think

But I’ve gotten called the N word ‘cause

My skin isn’t like milk, it’s kinda like a mixed drink

And being gay? Nope “that’s a sin”

God forbid us to love who WE wanted

but little did he know love always wins

If you’re a man in love with a man,

You’re obsessed with fashion and have a high pitched voice

You see? We didn’t ask you we just insisted without giving any other choice.

And you’re a lesbian if you have tattoos, piercings and short hair

And act like you have nothing to lose

If you are in love with the same gender you don’t love god!

Imagine what it’s like to be in his shoes!

You can’t judge someone because of who they identify as or who they love

If it’s not affecting your life, it’s not something you should be concerned of

Now, Muslims.

I guess they’re all terrorists huh?

But I guess we judge an entire nation of people

Based off of a few unfortunate attacks and call out the whole religion. DUH

If you’re wearing a Burqa or Hijab you get judged and looked at because you’re

an assumed terrorist

Yes 9/11 was a tragic day but we can’t blame all Muslims because of it

People will criticize no matter what

But I can tell you what one of society’s errors is

The muslim that sleeps in my house every single night


White people get looked at as the racists ones

But I can tell you that this stereotype isn’t true

Because my white mom has many brown daughters and sons

And my white grandmother on my dads side has 21 children 18  of them being adopted black kids, she took them all in because they were so beautiful and held her heart captive.

Negrophobia, Xenophobia, Homophobia, and Racism

These are all made up things for glamorizing human criticism.

The point of this poem was to debunk what stereotypes do

Also to remember never let lies and other people’s beliefs stop you from being unapologetically you
