Liberacism

Ethnic cleansing taking place

The US aiding racist factions

The first black president overseeing these actions

A supposed intervention to protect civilians

In reality the arming of racist minions

America achieving its motives by starting fights

Goals more important than the abuse of human rights

…human? …right!

Sub-Saharan African

…beneath the Saharan people

Therefore definitely not seen as equal

The makings of genocide

Echoes of Nazi Germany

A particular people forced to hide

The result of efficient propaganda

Journalists fired for telling the truth in Uganda

Labelled as mercenaries

Black skin concealing the mercenary within

Spreading rumours of rape used as a weapon in an effort to win

Appealing to base racism

What once was home now becomes prison

Hiding in need of vital supplies

But daren’t venture out they fear for their lives

Hundreds of black faces holed up in hiding places

“It was safer before!”

Say the Libyan black

Before America came

…they said the same in Iraq

Honest workers cut down with axes and pruning shears

Still facing mob justice after all these years

Hanging on a meat hook

Lynched from a street lamp

What’s next rounded up in some sort of camp?

There’ve been no condemning statements

Has the situation been reviewed?

Have UN leaders seen the videos on youtube?

European countries fear a mass black immigration

Maybe they hope these xenophobic attacks will solve the situation

Do they allow the cleansing to occur and lower the black population?

From Africa to Europe…Libya the stepping stone

The state of affairs in their favour so they leave well alone

Tawergha a transit town during slave trade

The mostly black inhabitants

Targetted by the purging of slaves and black skin brigade

It’s apparent that NATO don’t really care, assisting their advance with strikes from the air

Racist rebel leaders making it clear

Blacks better leave town, once the area is taken they’ll burn it to the ground

Claiming to fight for freedom and equality for all

Yet don’t want blacks working there or sending their kids to school

Do we live in a world where the value of black lives is so low?

Based on these events…apparently so.

    Very good poem, I don’t think I had been aware of this issue until you mentioned it to me the other day. Keep up the good work.

  2. Derek says:

    So much truth swept under the rug. Powerful revolutionary stance in this poem. I wish the whole country and world could read this and know the truth. Keep on

    • I like to think I’m pretty clued up so I was shocked to find out that something like this was going on and I hadn’t heard about it. What I didn’t mention is that there are those Libyans who have been helping to evacuate black Libyans. Please direct as many people as you can to the poem, its something that as many people as possible need to be aware of. Thank you for taking the time to read, really appreciate it

  3. This is really powerful. I am an ignorant American, I’m afraid. It seems it the story is not newsworthy over here. I fear that propaganda is alive and well, I’ve seen it on other stories. Very sad. It makes me think of how much time and money is spent on polar bears on ice cubes and animals reproductive rights in the face of such HUMAN suffering.

  4. Aaron says:

    Yes blud. Yet another deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep poem. I also didn’t know about this madness until you informed me. The media strikes again! Just spoke to my Dad about and he said he heard about it through watching the news. Not sure who broadcasted it. I’m sure what was broadcasted wasn’t as graphic as what I saw on You Tube.
    The suffering of black people around the world has always intrigued me and I’ve just concluded that the ignorant racists that do this are fearful of our uprising and our potential. The racist scum are trying to hold onto what power they have by using violence. But wait. These racists need to go to Specsavers though because I’m sure there must be a distinct difference between a mercenary and an immigrant.

      If we all work together, I was going to say people of all races….but we are one race, this World would be a much better place. The things that go unpunished, the things that aren’t addressed in this World are disgraceful.

  5. Hema says:

    This poem is so true and deep. Racism is still alive making life so tough for many.
    Good piece!

  6. Mohammad says:

    Well done, very powerful piece of literature.

  7. thingy says:

    I think it’s called spinning. No matter that people are eliminated. Must show the positive.

    Thanks for your write. It is an eye opener.

  8. antomaniax says:

    This poem is an eye opener,indeed,,Thanks for sharing!!

  9. Adam says:

    Wow, a very powerful poem and very well written. An eye opener not only to me but I imagine also to many, many others.
    I look forward to reading more of your work.

  10. lolamouse says:

    Living in the US, it’s difficult to get the real story on what’s going on in other countries. We’re so xenophobic here as well as isolationist. Thank you for bringing this to everyone’s attention.

    • This story was not covered properly here in the UK either. Spent hours researching it after it was brought to my attention. It’s not been given the attention it deserves and in most cases none at all.

      Thanks for your comment and taking the time to read

  11. “What once was home now becomes prison”… It’s a scary thought that one day, all the horrors of war will be taking place right here on our very own soil.

    This is so powerful, your voice is strong and clear and I appreciate that. It means alot that you shared this with, not only me but with everyone. More people should do the same. The media keeps so much hidden. (It’s all a money game, like everything else) and we are fed what “they” want us to hear, what they want us to get worked up over. They know exactly what their doing. It’s a shame really because people don’t even realize they are allowing themselves to be manipulated by just going with the flow of things.

    Wow ok im stopping… I was starting to ramble. But thank you again for the visit to my place and for sharing. Hope too see you around again. Bravo on this piece friend.
    Hugs!

      Strange, though, for being so hidden and manipulated by mainstream media, a lot of people on the Internet seem to know and talk about how hidden and manipulated “it” is. No matter how many people I talk to it seems each one feels pretty much like the sentiments you express in your comment (and are expressed in the poem and other comments). So, who are all the manipulated people? Maybe I’m wrong, but I feel like I’ve never meet a single member of this “mass of unaware and manipulated people”. Am I crazy?

    The so-called developed nations seems only to be developed in terms of wealth.. but they’re not “free” in other respects, we can’t demonstrate or congregate on the streets – our streets – without such things as permission, permits.. everything is controlled.. I live in France where they love rules & regulations.. people study in order to work in administration and beaurocracy and they can’t think for themselves.. they fear disorder..

    And in Greece – the home of “democracy”, the very notion of democracy – giving a referendum to the Greek poulation was quickly taken away by the bullying EU.. the Greek PM resigned and a EU/Goldman Sachs friendly beaurocrat/economist ushered in the “steady the ship”..

    They seem determined to have their way.. control of Europe through the EU and the banking moguls.. public opinion spoon fed by to the citizens by the media..

    Such topics as racism, immigration, religion.. oh shudder shudder, nobody likes to talk about them.. they start sentences with sentences like “I’m not a racist but..” yes go on.. but, but BUT!

    Yet, they’ll keep us quiet through such measures as austerity packages, we’ll work, we’ll be too tired to demonstrate, we’ll fear for our jobs.. we’ll scrape through.. we’ll just sit at home and watch TV and accept what they tell us.. it’s the analogy of the frog in the gently heated bowl..

    It is very very hard to fight against the hidden enemy.. they’ve wrapped it up in so many rules, laws and financial shackles that you basically have to move to somewhere with no real “democracy” to live a free life..
