-embraces all the band kid/clarinet stereotypes
I'm going to continue revising and making this poem better, so I'd really appreciate any feedback, including criticism. I won't be offended! Be as harsh as you see fit!
So the first version I wrote kinda felt like a confession (which I guess it was) of the racist views that I now know have clouded my judgement of people. I'm hoping that this draft is more of a call to action? If that makes sense? Please let me know which version you think is better and whether I achieved the tone shift I wanted.
I know that BLM isn't "trending" as much as it was a few weeks ago, but it's still just as important. Since the first time I published this, I've been researching and educating myself on how to fight racism. If you haven't yet, I highly encourage you to too.

Sorry for this super long message box!
