Jim Crow (snippet)

 

I find it hard to enjoy the picture show
When I see Jim Crow
Sitting on the front row
Yes, life with Jim Crow terrorizing the
Streets in white robes after dark
Has been no walk in the park…
 
…I don’t think it’s a crime
To see white kids go to the same school as mine
I don’t think it’s a crime either
For me to not accept that this is the way things ought to be
Because I know that this isn’t true liberty…
