I spoke to my inner black woman

And she told me to tell y’all to

Burn

It

Down

Til everything turns

Black

Until the systems turn to rubble

And all that is left are their ashes

Black

Until they can no longer say

“I DoNt SeE CoLor”

Black

Until our bodies matter

And they no longer

Kneel on our necks

Black

Until our education

Consist of more than singing praises of

Slave owners past and their distant cousins

Paint that shit, Black

I want this entire world drenched in blackness

Until our blackness is celebrated by all

And no one ever fears

Black

Until Black is humanized

And racism is prohibited

So tell

Karen and Todd

Becky and Andrew

That my inner black woman said

Burn

It

Down

So y’all best learn and listen
