Dawn

We ask you to help us work for that day
When black will not be asked to get back
When brown can stick around
When yellah will be mellah
When the red man can get ahead man
And when white will embrace what is right
Let all those who do justice and love mercy
Say amen

  1. Definitely one of the best moments of the day!

  2. Like kristina, I loved this one too. It was a welcome smile after an emotional morning. But I was disappointed, in talking about it later with people of various ages and backgrounds, how few people recognized the reference. Ditto for Dorothy Fields.

  3. Jenn Lena

    Jay: If you were disappointed by that, will you be crushed by this? My mother just told me she watched as a woman threw an absolute fit at this “racism on television.”
