Stop The Hate This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   I know that I'm big, black, and strong.

When I look at you I mean no harm.

I don't want people to be scared or

intimidated by me.

I want people to like and get to know me.

When I walk down a certain street or block

People stare with faces in shock.

It may be because of the color of my skin.

I hope racism comes to an end.

Every time I walk through a certain neighborhood

I'm harassed because they assume I'm up to no good.

I'm tired of these silly games.

No matter what color you are, we're all the same.

We should all get along with each other

No matter what race or color.

We need to stop

"The racism, the hate."

I'm speaking from the heart

Because I don't discriminate.
