“They Still Want To Kill Us”

By Daniel Roumain


Black Wall Street
Black Oil
Green Money

A young man
Mr. Rowland
A younger woman
Ms. Page
Stumbled upon one another
In that elevator everything changed

May 31, 1921
18 hours
A white mob
Engulfed with white rage

Burn it down
Burn it all down
A white man runnin’ with red blood on his hands

Bring it down
Bring it all down
A school, the library, our hospital, my church

Burn it down
Burn it all down
My people, our Black children, our stores, our homes

They want to kill us
They still want to kill us

God Bless America
God Damn America
