Colonialism, apartheid and other sicknesses

If we could step back a little
See the history of the human race
From Adam to Jesus
From Israel to Egypt
From Jesus to Madiba
From Shaka to Hitler
From Rhodes to Mugabe

Would we not see that the story is on repeat?
One tribe will govern another
It will opress the weaker...
The weak will rise and fight
It will grow strong and govern another
It will opress the weaker...

Like the little abused child who grows up to become the abuser
One nation rises above its opressors to become the opressors.

Whether we call it the holocaust
The african diaspora

It happens everywhere
All the time

It is not a white sickness
It is not a black sickness
