RACISM, HATISM, JEALOUSY, OR ALL?
Excluded from White Wall Street in New York, New York,
Black castaways built Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Segregated into the blighted and less verdant
Sections of towns; communities, and neighbourhoods,
Blacks turned urban blight into blings of Eden.
Hatists and Racists were riled and consumed with
Hate; jealousy, and murderous intentions,
Plotted to destroy Black wealth by violence and
By condemning Black Edens to freeways further segregating
Black neighborhoods from White neighborhoods.
Black Wall Street burnt and “Bankers” killed by
Bile-filled White lynching parties of Hatists and Racists.
Black Bottom and Paradise Valley of Detroit
Razed and bulldozed under pretext of road building.
Greenville, South Carolina turned into Deathville, South Carolina.
Blacks wiped out of Wilmington, North Carolina.
Destruction of Black wealth replicated in all major and minor US cities.
Blacks who pulled themselves up by their bootstraps
Were pushed back into poverty and their boots burnt.
Same crass man’s inhumanity to man was
Replicated over America widening the Black-White wealth gap.
Federally sanctioned housing discrimination augmented
By Racist and Hatist farm policies foreclosed Black Homes and Farms.
The Black-White wealth gap has blossomed into an
Unfillable canyon of inequality as the Colorado Grand Canyon
Has become an unfillable river bed.
