Wishing to forget the past, is not unlearning your bigotry and current subjugation of all unlike yourself,
many of you are lost forever, some have yet to be found, the ones that cause the most damage,
don't give a damn!

Violence and Tolerance 


 

Violence and tolerance are born of the same mother,

Peace and bigotry are her children,

America is the country they created,

Death, destruction and ingenuity are the tools they used,

Slavery is the engine that built the empire,

3/5’s is the lie they invented to appease the south,

White became the destroyer, by any means necessary,

Was the mantra they thought despite their speech,

The truth of America is what they wish to forget, but

Violence and tolerance are born of the same mother...
