The Truth Hurts


It only a few close-minded minds,
A few seconds to rip.
It only took a few words,
To cause this disruption.

I only stated a fact......

I worked all night,
To make that poster.
I took a few minutes,

To post that poster.

And I gained a fact......

The Truth Hurts,
Emotions suddenly burst.
Because since you were a child,
You you always been told.

You must hate that man,
You must hate your reflection.
Only because,
You were never taught true admiration.

So I'll state the fact.......

1 IN 10 LATINOS,
HAS AFRICAN ANCESTRY!
IT HAPPENED THROUGH GENERATIONS,
OF UNWANTED INTER-BREEDING.

IT HAPPENNED THROUGH LARGE SLAVE REBELLIONS,
IN WHICH OUR ANCESTORS TOOK PART OF.
THEY RECOGNIZED THE SIGNIFICANCE,
OF THEIR STRONG BLACK BROTHER.

And this is the fact that hurt....

Only because we were never taught!
Only because we were raised standardized!
Only because our minds are sterilized,
By a culture which rejects are common existance!

And this is the fact that continues my persistance,
To attain peace between African Americans and Latinos.
I do not care if my progress is halted,
I will steadily continue my progress>>>>>>>>>>>>> FOR PEACE!!
