celebrate diversity? a #poetryport poem

diversity is
  what we do
     in white schools.
eating spicy foods
(keep it mild don't go too
wild), maybe read a book
with a Black
boy on the cover

Diversity in schools
of color is racism
A reality not a goal
fixed by serving
taco bowls
But a dance of
resilience and
       brilliance, beautiful
children who succeed
     in spite of
not because
          of society
