I Don't Want Equality

  - 1:18

Self-appointed saviors of every stripe, from all across the nation, join hands to air their gripes. They scream with unanimous indignation about the wrongs of yesteryear cited today, preying on fears and visceral dismay. Oh how they lecture about my forefathers’ noble struggles and then conjecture that the solution to my troubles is “equality” with the whites. They say “equity” will be to my delight. But I won’t shame my ancestors by limiting my own prosperity to the capabilities of my oppressors under some cheap notion of solidarity. I won’t walk my autonomy back into the hands of the state so that the do-gooder hacks can live well and find more dregs to bait. I don’t want equality, I want to be at the apex. I don’t care for the “equity” ideology, no entity can preprogram my success. So long as I’ve got my liberties and my rights are respected, my drive will deliver me whether or not anyone is willing to accept it. *Photo in video by Robert Koorenny on Unsplash More of my spoken words can be found at https://johnalancaster.com/category/spoken-word/
