white mediocrity will get you dropped

white mediocrity will get you dropped

today, i kinda feel like everything's coming up milhouse
i took out my manager voice at work
even though i'm not a manager anymore
and don't wanna be
that shit was necessary, though
little lady doesn't do dishes
but when you stand around talkin
while all the others do the work
and one of the others shoulda been gone 20 minutes ago
you get denise the produce team leader
i know how to talk real good, though
so everything was fine

you see the problem is
when one or two don't like to do tasks
then it all falls apart as the day goes on
as the day gets busy
this is my life right now
this is what bothers me right now

then i sat in my favorite coffee shop
down at the hyperion
and reminded myself how to crochet
a circle

then i successfully murdered a mouse
that i've been tryin to murder for a few days
but i was just feedin that bitch for a few days
i got that bitch today
don't yet know if there's more
but i've murdered plenty of mice
before

there's mouse blood under my sink
i think it's cool
i almost took a photo of the stiff dead mouse
but that seemed to be takin it a little too far
because sanitary

jumpstart hearts
i want the world to be safe for women of color
which pretty much means any woman
who's not white
i know a lot of white men
i don't think any of them are actually feminists
i know none of them are actually feminists
even though they protest that surely they must be
you're not
not at all
not in any way
because you judge me
which means you judge other women
you try to tell me, us, how to be
by trying to tell me, us to be more like you
i, we are not men
you, you are not a feminist
until you, you get rid of that bullshit

i judge you
i am the judge of you
you are not a feminist
know how i know
cause i am one

you are not a feminist
until you can actually bow down to women
and you can't, can you?

and you should, shouldn't you.

i judge the fuck out of you
i just ordered some Black Lives Matter stickers
give me a fuckin cookie
that's a fuckin joke
if you have to explain that shit, denise, god damn
one of em's window size
one of em's laptop size
one of em's phone size
you can't buy that shit local still
i keep askin businesses
i keep challengin businesses
the shop that sellz HRC buttons doesn't sell Black Lives Matter buttons?
correct
last night, though, via the facebooks, a local shop that sellz local art responded yes to my inquiry
that they would start selling Black Lives Matter materials

i judge the fuck out of you
how come your shop doesn't donate to the ACLU
how come your shop doesn't donate to Black Lives Matter
how come your shop doesn't donate to the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee
i'm not talkin at one shop
i'm talkin at all the shops, co-ops, one shop stops

yes, i am tryin ta be the cops
without bein tha cops
cauz i know what's right
and i know that you're often wrong
white man

wanna know what else i know?
it is permanently the white mans' responsibility to change the world
right now
i teach my children this
if my children know this
then surely you can't possibly think that you can get away with your mediocre mediocrity any longer

white men can currently continue
as though shit is regular
no one else can actually do that shit right now
and no one else could do that before, either
your lives are barely, not even affected by white supremacist policy changes
so shut the fuck up
bow down
and listen to what i tell you

where do you start?
how do you change the world?
start at Black Lives Matter
you can't fucking skip ahead to native americans
or immigrants
or arab and muslim americans
i see white assholes actin like fighting pipelines means they don't have to love Black people
i see white assholes actin like fighting the Muslim ban means they don't have to love Black people
you can't skip over people
and ask yourselves, why is that happening?
because of white hatred of Black people
it's very specific

Black people are in jail
Black people are murdered by cops
more than any other person in amerikkka
you got no legs to stand on here

start loving and respecting Black and Brown people
and then
at the same fuckin time
on the same fuckin day
love and respect queer people
love and respect women
love and respect poor people
love and respect immigrants
love and respect people of all faiths
love and respect people of all physical and mental abilities
love and respect children
love and respect people of any ethnic and cultural background

challenge white people to do way the fuck better every fuckin day
educate your fucking selves from below the ground up
stop congratulating yourselves for being mediocre
i see mediocre white men all over the place
this world culture is bent on congratulating mediocre white men
all day long
get bent
bow down
get to work
and if you think i'm not talkin to you
i'm talkin to you double
 

this one time, i wanted to love a mediocre white man
