A Divided Nation

A Divided Nation

Elijah Porter

Civil Rights– separate from whites 

African Americans– mislead and insecure 

and experienced violence like never before. 

I am the darker brother. 


Beat, killed, and injured but still felt strong. 

African Americans weren’t treated as equals.  

I am the darker brother. 


Throughout time, history changed, but it’s just not enough. 

Segregation stands in some parts of the world. 

Some people are still racist and don’t treat us right. 

I am the darker brother. 


African Americans aren’t being treated equal and that needs to change 

Immediately  so  we are equal and the same. 

We are the darker brothers.
