Denouncing White Supremacy

I wrote the below poem based on how some people claim to be against white supremacy (due to the election of Donald Trump), so they express solidarity by teaming with Zionist organisations (or adopt the so-called ‘two sided’ argument about Palestine) in the name of inter community and interfaith solidarity.

“Denouncing White Supremacy”

how do
you denounce
Islamophobia
and anti-Semitism
and condemn
white supremacy
yet excuse
Zionism?

Zionism is
but one
face of
white supremacy

to condemn
white supremacy
is to condemn
all oppression
committed
against
people of colour
simply because
they are
people of colour
and also
towards those
not seen
as both
“white” and Christian

to condemn
white supremacy
is to condemn
oppressions
such as
colourism
colonialism
neo-colonialism
Nazism
neo-Nazism
Zionism
even capitalism itself

white supremacy
operates as
states
corporations
institutions
and
some social movements

it is more
than
the election
of certain
governments

if you
only see
white supremacy
through Nazis
and
neo-Nazis
then know
that
white supremacy
had never
come to
an end

and know
that
it will
always
be defended
