Poetry: ‘Dear White People – Integration’ by Immanuel Kush

dear white people – integration

dear white people

we don’t need no integration

leave our mother continent
take with you all the arms
your so called technology
drugs and mentality

take with you all the concepts
world views
teachings and politicians

pay back in money
all that you took of raw materials
goods and wealth
oil, carbon, diamonds,
silver, gold etc.

pay back in money
for the 200 million
that have died in your slave trade
which made you rich

pay back in money
for all those who died
under the name “slave”
or “negro” or “colored”
that gave you the riches
your boasting with, now

we don’t need your historical discoveries
don’t need your assumptions
on our artifacts
we know ourselfs

dear white people

we don’t need no integration
