What goes on behind those swerving eyes
And fast mind
Do you think of all of those you have half- loved
And Tore apart
Simply to get a glimpse of their light
That you will never have

I was struggling to put a response in words but I think this reddit user summed it up perfectly

Don’t “woke” folks complain about the lack of successful black owned businesses in America?

What “culture” and “inventions” are they going to take with them?

Their culture isn’t African. It’s American. Their “inventions” aren’t houses and infrastructure. What the fuck is this goof talking about?
