Who?

Who?
Whoever made one man better than another?
When?
When did we start acting better than our brothers!
What?
What made people think suppression was alright?
Why?
Why did people use violence when men stood up for their rights?
Then.
Then people fought to use the same restroom.
Now.
Now racist jokes are heard in every class room.
Who?
Whoever said that giving people rights was enough?
When?
When did people say " you want respect, that's tough"
What?
What makes people show blatant disrespect?
Why?
Why did were we limited to rights and not respect?
Then.
People had to fight for rights and were happy to be mimes.
Now.
We must fight to end civil respect for all time.
