White supremacy

I see you

Smell you

Your sweat of indulgent privilege

Unwashed by time

Repulsed I cringe

Nowhere to hide

Stale rancour

I find

In the mirror

I stare.

Stagnant role to wear

Your colour palette imposed

Shades of truth defined

Hidden in pride

Constructed context

Your roots have grown

Impregnating racial hyperbole

More sinister

You carnal soul!

You crossed land and sea in pursuit

Sovereign borders in disrespect

To find

In time

Unwanted courtesy returned

Seekers of a better life

Betrayed they come

Bringing change

National identity declined.

White supremacy

Arrogance defined

You treacherous foe

What I hate most

Is your legacy entrenched

Colour coded consciousness

Always Rejection

Always the same

You awful brute

Always without shame!

    I appreciate your poetic ability, on analysis of what is communicated about white supremacy, I find a contrast of some sort. When they left to their countries to seek adventure in other countries they were already Christians which teaches LOVE, yet on riving in these coutries e.g Africa, they found people practising UBUNTU philophy, hence they lost their nationality. Very sad indeed.

    1. Thank you Rob, the reference to colonialism while subtle is the genesis of deep rooted supremacy and ingrained superiority. As they colonized the world for a better life, the world is now colonizing them creating a crisis of identity and by extension fueling right wing nationalism.
