We revere the veneer of history. Why?
We know it’s not really what’s gone by.
We know it’s been whitewashed by victors.
Wanting the poor & colored living even stricter.
Though we know that History has two sides.
Which side you’re on by two things is tried.
Either you see the truth 20/20 in hindsight…
Or use your moral compass & hope your choice was right.
So many events & people are ignorantly lost to time.
Wrong color &/or wrong gender so history never dropped a dime.
This is the way it’s always been & I fear will be much longer.
But many have gotten a first look at their compass; making the movement that much stronger.
I hope for once that we find ourselves on the right side of right.
Else we’ll find that we are in for one long hell of a fight.
Just to get the facts right.
