About Michelle Phillips

​      I write because I want to change the way the world views race.  With each piece, my aim is to eradicate negative stereotypes about African-Americans, while educating people about our culture. 
     Whether it's through contemporary poetry or educational material, I hope that what I share encourages people to embrace all cultures, and accept the differences that make up the diverse world that we live in today. 


Committed to changing the way the world looks at race.

America: Black and White

Tragedy

The killings

The press release

Discovery

 

What is the discovery?

America the beautiful,

the land of the free,

a 9/11 we, the U.S. all unite & pull together;

race doesn’t matter, creed doesn’t matter,

your title doesn’t matter, neither does education;

rich or poor, man, woman, boy or girl, we all come together to restore our disrupted world.              

 

Old racism, old stereotypes,

old mentalities; medals, honors and now a fund to pay homage to those that have killed a Black boy.

 

Black life, it doesn’t matter; only those who make money for you, otherwise kill all the Black boys, and now kill the Black women too.

 

How can we blame them? Is it fair, no! But finger pointing won’t do any good, their power, money, mind-control all outweigh you.

 

The blame game is getting out of control, it’s NOT about Black and White, it’s about equality, respect, being heard, getting to the truth; it’s about who was wrong in this case, who overreacted, it’s about who did what to whom.  

 

Let’s be fair, yeah it was wrong, but let the whole story play out;

another Black boy shot dead, another Black boy murdered, buried in the ground, gone.
