White Folks Be Trippin’
Posted by Literary Titan
The modern-day history of America is filled with police brutality and racial injustice towards black, brown and indigenous people. The unjust murders of people of color by the hand of police officers continue. But we cannot tie the racism only with these murders. Racism is a deep-rooted social evil that exists in every bit of this country. People express their racial mindset rather proudly. It is often presented as a national pride. Every raising voice against this is branded as anti-national. But the more they oppress, the higher will be the voice. This anthology propels that voice beyond limits. Every line, every word is filed with the personal experiences. Every poem reflects the anger, pain and injustice.
White Folks be trippin’ is not a typical collection of prose and poems. While reading this striking collection of poetry, you will feel the intensity of the underlying emotions. They speak volumes. You will experience a sudden urge to express your emotions too. This is our inner voice and our expression against oppression. Suddenly, we will find a space to pen down our raising thoughts. J Mase III speaks to his readers through his passionate and emotive language. Because he knows every black, brown, indigenous, and queer person has gone through the same experiences at least once in their lifetime. If you can relate to the poetry you’ll find truth within the pages, if you cannot relate you’ll still be able to feel the authenticity in the words.
The feeling of sarcasm permeates some of the poetry. The author uncovers the contradictory nature of people and their weak efforts to create a liberal, empathetic, compassionate face for themselves. Although the author presents this true face with a touch of humor, these words can still pierce your heart. White Folks be trippin’ is an engaging and poignant collection of thought-provoking poetry.
