Dear America I have a Question?

If there is liberty and justice for all
Why is it that you only seem to hear the white-man's call
Are my cries not enough
Am I just an angry black woman
Who always feels the need for things to be just
Dear White America
I’m am so happy that you have the privilege
To ignore the things that govern our daily lives
But why does your education have to be filled with such lies
If only you knew
You too would be filled with our strife
Our blood has been shed for the red white and blue
But when we shout BLACK LIVES MATTER
You yell WHO?
