"Racism is Taking Over" 


Me'Yauney Peoples


Save the world right now

Racism is horrible

People are killing


This needs to stop

Too many lives are leaving

No equality


People are judging

By the color of your skin

 Not by who you are


This is horrible

This really has to end now

Time to save the world
