- What Matters
Does Race Matter?
On a cold winter day, in January
Walking with a pace that makes you weary
You stop to stare at the American flag
What do you think of when you see it waving?
Flailing proud in the white winter sky
Do you think of equality, liberty, and justice?
Or do you think of atrocities and wanton destruction?
Do you think of silver, gold, the weak, or the bold?
Do you think of petty disagreements, that led to war?
Do think of discrimination, of anguish, of many lives lost?
Do you think of how the English drove the red skins out of their home?
Do you think of everything that happened in the history, the past?
Does race matter?
To the slaves who prayed for their lives
To the Native Americans who fought with honor and valor
To the North and the South
Who killed their own brothers
War, Agony, Suffering, and Bloodshed
This is what is achieved…when race matters.
