Why You Talk So White! By Maya The Poet

I posted this on tumblr earlier this week and since then it's received amazing views and comments. We are talking over 700 and counting!

My favorite lines:
"I'm speaking a white language
best believe there wasn't a single Black person at the meeting when the british made up english, or any "romance language."
and if there were they were probably serving sandwiches because we are talking about the same people that call(ed) us savages.
so every time. every time we speak English, we talk white.
