Dear Internet: Why The Exception?

You can’t mock someone ’cause they’re fat,

Ugly, stupid, stuff like that.

You can’t make jokes about a race

(At least not to somebody’s face).

You can’t gay-bash, slut-shame, or mock

The way one laughs or thinks or talks.

But you can defame or spew hate at

Those with neckbeards or a fedora hat.

Yes, I’m White. Why Do You Ask?

I played some Chinese checkers

And no one batted an eye.

I enjoyed some Chinese chess

And no one asked me why.

I played some Chinese backgammon

And still they let me enter

But you play Chinese Russian Roulette

And they throw you out of the Chinese cultural center.

Not For You And Me

Grew up in a place

Wouldn’t know

Where pronouns have no place

Or so said so.

Before call something

Might regret later

Know that shouldn’t

Be a hater.
