“southern white privilege” by April Bandy-Taylor

Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton
look away
look away
look away Dixieland

because that’s what we do
we look away

Even as we hold up signs

black lives matter
immigrants get the job done
we stand with you standing rock

but we look away
because that’s what we do

we can’t see
we won’t see
we don’t see

The black
the brown
the queer
the trans
The immigrants
The people “not not like us”

the melting pot
A transparent lot
we stir the pot

We are the problem
we are the solution.
I…am the solution.

But we look away

look away
look away
Dixieland.
