Racist Babes On The Great White Way! (A Poem)

By Ellie Mangle-Lero


No Way To Tap Dance Around It!

Oh Hai!!

Broadway is often called “The Great White Way”, and boy is that ever correct! White Privilege and Racism is in our DNA as white people. It is in so deep that most of the time we don’t even see it, and it falls to people like me and Mick Dumdell and others, to burrow down into the rotten, white, slimy souls of ourselves to dredge it out into the daylight! It is a hard job, but somebody has to do it. Somebody has to be on the constant lookout for all this racism, because if you aren’t looking really hard for it, you won’t find it.

Here is one example, in a cute little poem I just wrote with a video to go along with it! The two should be taken together as a single piece of protest art! Notice how because of  “White Privilege”,  Mickey and Judy and the other white people can just leave their “blackness” behind at the end of the song.

The Great White Way???

Some people say there is no way
Racism’s in our DNA!
But look right here! See what I mean—
Mickey’s and Judy’s dance routine!

And why are they waiting???
And dancing??? Oh, I see!
They’re waiting on
The Robert E. Lee!

What kind of ship would ever be,
Named after General Robert E. Lee???
Who fought for the Confederacy???
Who fought like Hell, FOR SLAVERY!!!

Oh will we ever rue the day,
We brought this show to Old Broadway?
I guess we know now why they say,
That Broadway is The Great White Way!!!

We must stop calling Broadway, The Great White Way. And this movie needs to be banned!

    I see I am still in the head of the troubled barrister, Mark Esposito. Makes my day knowing I haunt that ham n’ egger ambulance chaser. He saw fit to reference me as he gloated about the SCOTUS decision. I surmise he then returned to his bathtub scotch.

    I guess we should expect to hear from the Whegro, Rachel Dolezal, on the Confederate flag; having lived her life in Montana and Washington.

    The bloviating barrister/Captain Ahab’s swipe is, appropriately enough, on the Fox News thread @ 10:34am.


  4. It's Me Testicles, you see? says:

    Rachel Dolezal…Blackracker or Negwhite? An Oreo or reverse Oreo?
