The American Dream Reborn (Prologue)- (Louis Toliver Jr-Austin, TX)


(Prologue)

I remember history class
Reading of all the American stories
Where times got tense, the US stayed strong
The American Dream says we can be anything
Look around that globe
Freedom isn’t everywhere

Freedom of speech
The greatest of all rights
Let’s use it and state our future
I don’t have to be a Democrat
I don’t have to be a Republican
I’m American and that’s a blessing
Today you can make yourself
An American nightmare is to destroy yourself
To be aware of what go you this far

But never forget
If you want these states to be united
We have to accept what makes us different
No other country that I know
Lets minorities gain majorities
The ambitious American knows this
She feels alone, yet everyone is with her
The American Dream is here, don’t forget

I’m Not a Nigger (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

You called me a “nigger” One word to rule me  Your word bullet of hate 
You’re life is a such hell  You think 6 letters  Justify your fake inferiority 
Just 6 letters  I got those and 20 more  Together
My mind is bulletproof I’m so far above you  I can call you scum in 6 different languages 
You can’t hide in white pride You are hate  You’re the nigger
