The undercurrent of discrimination in this "melting pot" of cultures, known as America, has always been evident.
Lyrics
Discrimination's Fires by Reggie Miles © 2017 All rights reserved Say goodbye to net neutrality Protesting is a felony Abortion's illegal, immigration too Freedom of speech is now taboo Will this criminal nation ever learn Discrimination's fires burn Lower taxes for the wealthy few Higher taxes for me and you Healthcare lost to millions more The rich get richer, the poor more poor This criminal nation's greedy yearn To see discrimination's fires burn The new normal's not normal at all Keep Mexicans out by building a wall Muslims forced into a registry To live in this land of the free This criminal nation took a wrong turn As discrimination's fires burn Fake news is everywhere Alternative facts are what we share Normalization of violence and hate Welcome to these un-united states This criminal nation's hard to discern While discrimination's fires burn The president dodges his personal debt Braggin bout grabbin what he can't get He's a megalomaniac misogynist Impeachment looms on everyone's lips This criminal nation's end of days Discrimination's fires blaze The republic's crashin to the ground Because of a single orange faced clown With tiny hands and skin too thin A bad combover bully's narcissistic win This criminal nation's point of no return And discrimination's fires burn Millions marchin in the street To an anti-fascist protest beat They've had their fill of all this shit And no, they ain't gettin over it This criminal nation better change its ways Before discrimination's fires blaze My county tis of thee Sweet land of liberty Of thee I sing today We've got to find a better way This criminal nation has got to learn Discrimination's fires burn This is what democracy looks like Don Don't bother unpackin you'll soon be gone
