Don’t tell me racism isn’t real
because once upon a time,
so many brave souls risked their lives
to escape slavery, to find peace,
and we don’t have that anymore.

Don’t tell me racism isn’t real
because once upon a time,
there were white and black bathrooms,
there were white and black schools,
and now you have to share.

This is about children being slaughtered.
Stop trying to make it about you.

Tell me racism isn’t real
when murderers are put in jail,
regardless of skin colour,
and the media delivers the news the way it should,
with less bias and more facts.

Tell me racism isn’t real
when people are never shot,
regardless of how much melanin is in their bodies;
melanin that protects against UV rays,
but has yet to stop their guns.

I think Gale knows as much about his heritage as I do, which is very little.

He was born in what is present-day France in a Greek colony. He may have had a dark grandmother (Egyptian, or Phoenician maybe).

And some of it may very well be tan, and age.
