Default Setting

I am not a racist but

I do prefer my own

Unconscious racial bias

Is somewhat overblown


I am not a racist!

I have friends who are black

You’ve come so far since being a slave

Don’t worry you’ll bounce back


I am not a racist!

This England is my home

Your coming here in masses

Is what I can’t condone


I am not a racist but

I often do agree

With sharing key resources

First with those who look like me


I am not a racist!

We’re equal, I know that!

Your laziness, aggression, crime

That’s not because you’re black


I am not a racist!

I’d never call you names

Or burn a cross upon your lawn

Because you’re spreading aids


I am not a racist!

I sympathise and dream

Of a time when we’ll be equal

You’ll be coffee, I’ll be cream


I am not a racist!

I want you to fit

It’s the others who don’t understand

They’re all just hypocrites!
