About Michelle Phillips

​      I write because I want to uplift and educate people.  With each piece, my aim is to either make people laugh, or to eradicate negative stereotypes about African-Americans.

     Whether it's through contemporary poetry, non-fiction books or educational material, I hope that what I share encourages people, open up their minds 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 & WHITE (The remix).

by K on 09/20/20

 America: Black and White

Tragedies

The killings

The press releases

Discoveries

 

What is the discovery?

America… the beautiful,

the land of the free?

 

During 9/11, WE THE PEOPLE all united & came together;

RACE didn’t matter

CREED didn’t matter

ETHNICITIES didn’t matter

Your title, your education, whether you were rich or poor…

Straight, gay, Black, White, a girl or a boy

IT DIDN’T MATTER!

 

We’re under attack! We’re under attack!

Trade

Center

Tower

Planes

Terrorists

White House

WE ALL CAME TOGETHER TO FIX OUR DISRUPTED WORLD

 

Racism

Stereotypes

Oppression

Discrimination

What the hell is going on in America?  It’s 2020, not 1964!

The headlines, the news, the internet, and now even streaming live…

Someone, usually a police officer has shot yet another Black man, woman, boy or girl.

The lies, the cover-ups, the conspiracy theories; the BLM, the President, the athletes, all the coverage.

Victim blaming

Victim shaming

If they wouldn’t have moved; they didn’t follow directives.

They deserved it; then the world sees the video footage…

 Old mentalities

Good ole boys club

A pass

A medal

A temporary suspension; let “them” calm down, fight the suspension; give your testimony, regardless of the evidence, you’ll be back on a police force, before you know it.

White lives

Black lives

Yellow lives

Brown…

Your life

                                                            My life                                            

Our life

His life

Hers…

 Human decency…

Doing the right thing…

Having ethics and morals…

When ANYONE MAKES A DEADLY MISTAKE, hold them accountable

Remember that WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS that belong to the King of Kings.
