XENOPHOBIA By Japheth Agbonavbare

Written by Editor

Say no to xenophobia
I mean we are Africans, we’ve got history even before Wikipedia
So sad to see Africans go against Africans
Nation going against Nation
And it’s gradually becoming a massacre
It’s becoming something not worth speaking of
Blacks killing fellow blacks
Suppose to be the same race but now everyone is taking different race,
Sad but that’s the real fact
You kill a fellow brother because of some resources and some dumb stashes,
Some stereotype beliefs and some false facts
And then you end up being dirty by killing, nigga that’s some real trash.
What saddens me the most is that these black Africans go to white countries to claim rights
But here in their homeland they discriminate and kill a fellow black man like its right
Acting like white cops saying black’s life don’t matter, now is that right?
You kill a fellow brother, a fellow human and you feel it is right.
I’m so pained right now like I’m so grieved
I wish I could just cover this stain. Like I was rolling up my sleeves,
But what can I say this shit gat me wishing I had super powers
Raiden plus Zoko, I will just electri fire them
But at the end of the day this xenophobic attacks can only end with prayers mehn.
I don’t wanna talk more on this cos its obvious the world is coming to an end
So I kinda feel it’s a sign so everyone should go get prepared.
