Stop Pretending

by C'Moore Productions

You appear to be certain
but you're really unsure. 
You appear to be confident 
but you're really insecure.
You appear to be nonchalant 
but you're really concerned. 
You appear to know it all 
but you know you need to learn.
You appear to be politically correct 
but really deep within, 
You view me as inferior 
because of the color of my skin. 

You pretend to be color blind 
but to me it's an amazing fact, 
How quickly your sight returns 
when your competitor is someone Black.

You pretend the playing field is level. 
As long as YOU are on top. 
But then when I defeat you, 
all pretending stops. 

You do whatever makes you feel better:
Complain, Appeal, Protest 
Anything but recognize that
Maybe I'm just the best. 

I'm aware of the games you play, 
So, I never let down my guard. 
I understand that without your little facade
Life for you would be too hard. 

So I look right past the person 
You APPEAR to be 
And face the fact you try hard to hide; 
You're a racist; intimidated by me.
