After a point

it doesn't matter

if you are wearing the white robe of the Klan

because even if you don't parrot their beliefs

even if you hate them and all that they stand for

you are still one of them

wearing the white robe that started it all.

Your tears don't matter

your cries aren't heard

No one can see that you wish for change

because they see your face and they think: white

hear your voice and think: white

You get the privileges even if you don't want them

You walk among the enemy

Wear the face of the enemy

and what the enemy does is your doing, too

you have no choice, you are trapped

trapped in the most comfortable of cages

trapped in your mind and your people and their expectations

trapped in the truth and the lies of the whites

and you can't escape,

because you wear the face of the enemy.
