"Black People Poem"

by Poemahontas Poemadonna

50 shades of black
We're colorful people
True freedom we lack
Hardly treated equal

Free with no rights
Now how is that right
No coloreds allowed
This is only for whites

Slaved, tortured,
Killed, raped
The law allowed
This to take place

History repeats
History erased
Condemned by man
Because of your race
Watch the video to understand why this month is important to commemorate...
October - Black history month in the UK
February - Black history month in the USA
