AMERICAN REFUGEE! (Poem)

I am not an African-American

I am an American refugee, born the descendant of slavery

My history has been made a mystery to me

Desegregation was not for us all to live as one in unity

But only for blacks to give the white supremacist community our money

As we stay far away in our crime, poverty stricken and drug infested communities

Never to live as one, divided we stand!
