The Ode of the Modern Racist

Αναδημοσιεύω αυτό το ειρωνικό «ποίημα», αφιερωμένο σε όσος μιλάνε για αντίστροφους ρατσισμούς, σεξισμούς και δεν συμμαζεύεται και σε όλους τους «μα δεν είμαι μισογύνης» και τους «εγώ, ρατσιστής?!» Ναι, είσαι ρατσιστής. Και μισογύνης. Και ομοφοβικός.

The Ode of the Modern Racist

How can I be racist if I work with blacks
How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
I’m not racist I’m just like you.
I’m best friends with a black or two
i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
the west lost its way with no room for clemency
If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?

i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee
plus one time i got called “cracker” to my face
don’t we all bleed red? i don’t even see race…

I’m not racist, blacks just need to stop complaining
Living in the past and white people blaming
I work hard, no handouts for every little fraction
If white privilege isn’t fair, then how is affirmative action?

I’m not racist man, I’m just right-wing
Plus reverse-racism is totally a thing
It’s not about power, check the definition
Slavery wasn’t an evil thing, just asset acquisition.

How come I can’t say “nigga”, it just means brotha!
And ain’t I a brotha from anotha motha?
I didn’t use the ‘er’- so its a total difference.
You blacks give good white people such hindrance emoticon frown

‘We can’t handle spicy foods’ ? Your jokes make me sad
See, if I joked and called you a “nigger”, you’ll be mad
You black people think we are always out here to ruin your day
Look, ‘not all white people’, …mmkay?

I can say “nigga” ‘cause of freedom of speech
And y’all always forget what MLK preached!
White privilege ain’t real ‘cause my life is hard
If you want to stop racists, don’t play the race card

Blacks can oppress. Shoot, they’ve oppressed me
I was the only white kid and the blacks were so mean
So I called one a nigger, but clicked anon first
yeah racism is real, but like… I’ve had it worst.
