America, oh America, needs a black wash'ing

America oh America,  Needs A Black Wash’ing

America, oh America, oh land  of the slightly free,
America , oh America, are you not really our America?
How can this be, oh America, mistaken for a land of true democracy,
America, oh America, you always seem to seek those whitewashed seas,
America, oh America you’ve closed your ears to our shattered pleads,
America, oh America, why do you ask for our blood as fees?
America, oh America, why do you demand us to our knees?
America, oh, America, your hidden hate has gone berserk,
America, oh America how in the hell is democracy in this land ever to work?
America, oh America, why do continue to allow injustice this damn smirk?
America, of America, inequality in this land continues like clockwork.
America, oh America, got some white folks thinking they are on the rhine
America, oh America you must see that hateful acts are never supine?
America, of America, you understand that racism runs up and down your damn spine,
America, oh America, you have your nation’s people  searching for cloud nine,
America, oh America never ever wanting to erase this wretched color line.
America, oh, America, can’t we simply locate a new baseline?
America, of America, King once called you out for the hate of black
America, oh America you never gave black any damn slack
America, oh America, black folks are simply tired of being mack’ed
America, oh America, young black men always being jack’ed
America, oh America, you need a black wash
America, of America, our people demand a move away from this constant whitewash
America, oh, America, we no longer be brainwashed
America, oh America truth and justice for us are simply haters’ hogwash
America, oh America, the time is near for the aim of destruction of our people is clear
America, oh America, wash your minds from all this hate and injustice’s distaste
America, oh America, we can no longer wait nor constantly take a lair’s bait
America, oh America, we understand now what will be our fate
America, oh America, the line of equality in this nation has never ever run straight
America, oh America, why in the hell didn’t we make our own damn state?
America, oh America, rather than allowing you America, to endanger our birthrate?
America, oh America, the call is loud and clear 
America oh America, justice should never be something to fear
America, oh America, wash your shores in dark rich blackness
America, oh America, love the hues of colored souls
America, oh America, don’t feel any pinch of sadness
America, oh America loving white has only created this damn madness!
America, oh America, loving black may bring eternal gladness.
