No To Your Nostalgia

No To Your Nostalgia
by BlackSacredSam

It is not a loud passionate hate.
It is no longer racial slurs
from a heart overflowing
with disgust and intolerance.

No, it is a whisper…
From a friend…
Saying that you’re not
like the rest of them…
your people.
“You’re so well spoken.”

It’s a subtle nostalgia for the past
in the comments of a Facebook post.
Cringeworthy.
“The streets were cleaner.”

It’s a subtle nostalgia for the past
in a random conversation with a colleague.
“I love farms too!”
“Yeah but these people have ruined them”

It’s a subtle nostalgia for the past
in the lecture hall.
“Business was booming back then…
But the new government…”
“No, but slave labour!”

Silence.

Inspirationally Yours,
BlackSacredSam
