America-The land of the free? : Write2Educate
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-The land of the free?

by K on 07/03/15

America- The land of the free?


Red, White and Blue;

is it the land of the free?

2015, the fight continues;





Killings of unarmed Blacks,

Now you tell me?


The land of the free;

A Black President

But increased killings of unarmed Black men

continues to rise rampantly.

Kill a Black man, woman, boy or girl,

Assassinate their character by the media,

to slightly skew the remorse.

 The good ole boys club will NEVER go away,

Kill nine innocent people in a Black church,

the killer, treated oh so gently.

Provided a bullet proof vest,

not a mark on site, alive, walking peacefully, even getting media high fives!

 Justice for the gays FINALLY!

Equal rights for them,

When I asked about justice for Blacks, 

my character was assaulted, guess by who?

By some of the ones that are now treated equally.


The land of the free,

Kill a [email protected]@, and you will go unpunished, get away scot free!


You worry about ISIS, and how successfully they recruit,

They see your lack of loyalty and how you hate the Black group!


You can’t bully ISIS, cannot even crush the small militant group,

You are your own militia when it comes to Black life;

Other countries hate you!


How do you expect ISIS to be civilized? Calling them barbaric

when you are barbaric to your very own.

Justifying the killings of innocent Black life.
