Open Your Eyes (The Fight Is Not Yet Won)

They say racism is dead
But tell that to the man
Who is racially profiled
Who has done
Nothing wrong
Other than
Be the very
Color they
Are looking for
They say sexism
Is a thing of the past
But tell that
To the girl

Who had to
Dress like
A slut just
To get a job
Then was
Taken advantage of
And then was paid
Much less than
Every man
In the office
We think
This doesn't
Still happen
But think again
Because it does
And I am sick
Of society
Just putting
Up with it
Because they think
Said issues
Are all in the past
