America the Great?

America the Great.

America that is mixed like a blender

but judges based on race 

and a someone's gender. 


America the Great.

Why do you hate me?

Is it the color of my face?

Or my womanhood that's carefree?


America the Great. 

Why do you dislike my people of color?

Is it because some aren't straight?

Is that why you seize them from the collar?


America the Great?
