As long as we differentiate on who’s lives matter by color
Or report hatred categorized by color instead of just the necessary title of hate
We will always have separation and ‘sides’.
From the president to the reporting agencies at large
Make hate and violence unacceptable.
Don’t exclude my horror and empathy
Because of my color.
I will never accept violence as an appropriate behavior
To disagreement or lack of understanding.
We are killing one another.
Why is that acceptable, tolerated, or excused?
Is not a precursor to my disposition on values, ethics and morals.
I don’t hate you.
I am horrified at the inhumanity inflicted on any human being.
I’m ashamed of what we as humans are capable of.
But I have hope
In what we as humans are worthy of.
