Talking about race with words that rhyme with woke

I awoke this morning thinking about words that rhyme with woke. Then I wrote some sentences that use those rhymes and some that don’t:

Categorizing people by race is a cloak that hides who they really are.

Let’s revoke the false idea that skin color defines a person.

When we listen to the voices that spoke in our history, let’s not censor the ones we don’t like.

Historians who only told the favorable parts of American history misspoke.

When we’re fully woke
To logical thinking
Racism will croak
Because it’s irrational.

The hoax of race has had a chokehold on America far too long.

When we ignore or justify the injustice in our history, we create a smokescreen that hides much truth.

Regardless of the outward color, if you crack an egg, the white isn’t more important than the yolk. Let’s break the yoke of race!

If we soak up a broader view of American history, we’ll begin to see things differently.

It’s not being woke to tell the truth about James K. Polk and other US Presidents who forcibly enslaved innocent human beings.

When we take a rational approach towards race, it disappears. The very concept of dividing people into races is irrational.

When people strongly believe a lie, any fact that contradicts it is seen as a threat.

If the telling of certain parts of American history provoke us to anger, we’re being irrational.

Researching history for facts isn’t political but leaving out the parts of history that challenge your position is.

People like to justify American slavery by saying other nations enslaved people, but not American freedom by saying other nations have had freedom.

A person who is unawake to injustice has left the truth.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
