Sometimes we say or do something that puts us on a collision course with someone else, and a confrontation might seem inevitable. It is this moment of conflict - after it has begun but before it has developed into a full-blown battle - that students should reflect upon. At the heart of many conflicts, we find colliding ideas, values, and beliefs.


▶ Song Lyrics: White Privilege II ◀

 

Macklemore / Ryan Lewis / Ben Haggerty / Glen Lane Reynolds / Larry Griffi

 

 

Pulled into the parking lot, parked it
Zipped up my parka, joined the procession of marchers
In my head like, “is this awkward?
Should I even be here marching?”
Thinking if they can’t, how can I breathe?

Thinking that they chant, what do I sing?
I want to take a stance ’cause we are not free

And then I thought about it, we are not “we”
Am I in the outside looking in, or am I in the inside looking out?
Is it my place to give my two cents?
Or should I stand on the side and shut my mouth?

“No justice, no peace,” okay, I’m saying that
They’re chanting out, “black lives matter,” but I don’t say it back
Is it okay for me to say?
I don’t know, so I watch and stand
In front of a line of police that look the same as me
Only separated by a badge, a baton, a can of Mace, a mask
A shield, a gun with gloves and hands that gives an alibi
In case somebody dies behind a bullet that flies out of the nine
Takes another child’s life on sight

Blood in the streets, no justice, no peace
No racist beliefs, no rest ’til we’re free
There’s blood in the streets, no justice, no peace
No racist beliefs, no rest ’til we’re free
Blood in the streets, no justice, no peace
No racist beliefs, no rest ’til we’re free
There’s blood in the streets, no justice, no peace
No racist beliefs, no rest ’til we’re free

[...]
It’s all stolen, anyway, can’t you see that now?
There’s no way for you to even that out

You can join the march, protest, scream and shout
Get on Twitter, hashtag and seem like you’re down
But they see through it all, people believe you now?
You said publicly, “rest in peace, Mike Brown”
You speak about equality, but do you really mean it?
Are you marching for freedom, or when it’s convenient?

Want people to like you, want to be accepted?
That’s probably why you are out here protesting
Don’t think for a second you don’t have incentive
Is this about you, well, then what’s your intention?

[...]

And if I’m the hero, you know who gets cast as the villain
White supremacy isn’t just a white dude in Idaho
White supremacy protects the privilege I hold
White supremacy is the soil,
the foundation,
the cement
and the flag that flies outside of my home.

[...]
