I don’t know much about God

Kendrick said if God got us then we gon be alright

But I don’t think that’s the same God they’re talking about when white people say “God bless America”

The same God when white people say “One nation under God”

God dammit

They’re so colorblind they turned Jesus white

They don’t understand erasure of history, erasure of truth

Why didn’t they go to church with MLK?

Was it not their God MLK was talking about?

 

I don’t know much about God

But I don’t think he blesses a country who drops bombs

And I don’t think he sends people to hell for loving who they want to love

And I don’t think he sends little kids to hell for believing in a different one

 

I don’t know much about God,

but I think he’d rather you love your neighbor,

love your neighboring countries,

and love your neighbor even if they don’t speak the same language

 

I don’t know much about God,

but I think she lives among those who love

she lives in these spaces
