Don’t rely on Merriam.

Don’t rely on Oxford.

My looks can’t stand the mirror;

My skin is brown–

I am in Hawai’i–

I cannot avoid the sun.

But it does not mean

I am blind

To see what is done.

Prejudice

Is a blind spot,

Men can’t simply overcome.

Rephrase,

What is important?

A. Lives

B. Respect

C. Equality

D. Empathy

E. All of the above.


Indignity is a crime against humanity;

It’s an insult to civility.
