Social Justice Poetry

Rear Entrance | A Social Justice Poem by JD DeHart

They told him to go
to the back door, face
the wrong shade
to walk in the front

Years later they would
tell him the playing
field was equal, those
were the sins of long-
ago ancestors

They would tell him
he lives in a country
that is longer racist,
sexist, or classist

But he would take
a long look around
and beg to differ.
