My hatred of you intensifies every single day.
“Hate is self-destructive,” is all you have to say.
To hell with your hypocrisy for you are one to talk.
With put-on airs of sainthood, when have you walked the walk?
I’m not treated as your equal; I’ve only been a tool.
Your shit stops here with me; I will never be your fool.
If you sling hate long enough, just watch and it will stick.
And no matter what you do to me, my color would be my pick.
Don’t lecture me on hate and what it will propagate.
What your hate of me has sown are more fertile seeds of hate.
When those who look like me were imprisoned everyday
And those who look like you just turned the other way.
When I was not employed because my skin was just too dark,
you fueled the flames of hate in me; you lit the final spark.
You planted all these seeds and now you get to watch them grow.
Your house of cards will soon collapse just like a domino.
Oh, don’t tell me how surprised you are as that would be a lie.
You can bet on your nasty ass, my hate for you will never die.

Black people in America are often denied jobs and home loans based solely on their skin color. Black people in America are locked out and have been locked out of the ‘middle class’ since the end of slavery and have been subjected to every indignity the white man could heap on them and still they bear the brunt of what occurs during every depression; every economic shit storm. Black people have been suffering and are suffering and with no end in sight, but now that the whites are experiencing ‘difficulties’, every fucking where you turn, all you hear about is ‘income inequality’. Where has the outrage about Black ‘income inequality’ been? Why has that shit never mattered?
It hasn’t fucking mattered until it started to impact whites. “Awww, Susie White, you’ve got to move out of your McMansion because you lost that good paying job and your fucking nice ass income along with it and now you’re ‘slaving away’ at Micky Ds flipping some goddamn burgers for $7.25 an hour?!! Ain’t that a shame, oh what a shame that is! Goddamn it! We need some damn ‘income equality’ all up in here right now, goddamn it!!” But when poor Black mom and her two kids in the hood were sleeping with the cockroaches for decades, who fucking gave a shit? Not a one of y’all white motherfuckers who are now wailing and screeching about fucking ‘income inequality’. Well, fucking suck it up and deal with it ’cause you ain’t hardly hit rock bottom yet. Oh not at all. And when the goddamn cockroaches become your bedmates, you’re fucking gonna get to screaming that much more louder. And I’m buying earplugs, ’cause I don’t hardly want to hear the goddamn fuss you’re gonna kick up! Squash ’em! And shut the fuck up about your ‘income inequality’ when you didn’t give a damn about that shit when it wasn’t fucking up YOUR goddamn day!
