Students and staff are celebrating Black History Month this October. One of our talented Year 10 students wrote her own powerful and meaningful lyrics to a rap song which she delivered during school assembly this week:
It doesn’t matter if you’re black,
It doesn’t matter if you’re white
If we work together, we can stop this fight
There’s so much hate in the world, where do we start?
Let’s begin to love, and fix these broken hearts
It’s black history month, but what does it mean?
It means embrace the past, it shows how far we’ve been
It’s affected us all, so let’s stand together,
Let’s all join forces, love is forever
Hold up- is that racism I see?
We have to stop this, kindness is for free
If I had a dime for black hate crime
I’d be like Mansa Musa, the richest of our time
Let’s support and say their names,
This is real life this isn’t a game
If you see something wrong, call it out
See it, report it, that’s what it’s about
L O V E love don’t hate
God said we’re all equal, so why discriminate?
In the end, we’re all human, so why segregate
If we were all anti-racist the world would be great
Yeah, police brutalities,
It’s not okay
A racist comment
Can ruin someone’s day
If you’re an ally make it known,
Because we can’t fight this battle alone
It’s Black History Month,
And let me say it again
Let’s all stand together right until the end
It doesn’t matter if you’re black, white green or blue
You’re perfect from your hair right down to your shoe
