THE BACKLASH BLUES
by Langston Hughes

Mister Backlash, Mister Backlash,
Just who do you think I am?
You raise my taxes, freeze my wages,
Send my son to Vietnam.

You give me second class houses,
Second class schools.
Do you think that colored folks
Are just second class fools?

When I try to find a job
To earn a little cash,
All you got to offer
Is a white backlash.

But the world is big,
Big and bright and round--
And it's full of folks like me who are
Black, Yellow, Beige, and Brown.

Mister Backlash, Mister Backlash,
What do you think I got to lose?
I'm gonna leave you, Mister Backlash,
Singing your mean old backlash blues.

You're the one
Will have the blues.
not me--
Wait and see!

to get started


Art is either plagiarism or revolution. Paul Gauguin

so lets make this one revolution.
I'd love to get some artist involved here, maybe get some banners and icons for starters! But what I really want is people giving hteir message to the world through their art, I want you to feel liberated, here speach is free and life is important.
Get creative, get impassioned
Get Motika.
