The Black Panthers are the Ku Klux Klan

My whole life I have felt sorry for blacks for being slaves.

The Muslims and whites were brutal to them.

They had the advantage of our sympathy

And got aid and affirmative action


Their cruel behavior in Ferguson reminds me

That they are no better than us.

They burn and loot

Instead of discuss and negotiate.

They undercut their cause with gun play and knives.

In their hoods they commit ninety per cent of their violence

Against their own people.

When it comes to rape,

They prefer white women.

They once deserved our sympathy.

But that’s before they let the content

Of their character become the negative closure of their skin.

The Black Panthers are the Klu Klux Klan with a suntan.

The game is boring.

It’s time the blacks put in the effort to win at black jack.

Their new complaints fall on deaf ears

Because they can’t hear beneath the gun fire.
