Race Relations

Race relations needn't be so tricky.
Trusting non-brothers is where it gets sticky.
If you treat everyone with respect.
Upon your sincerity 'twill reflect.
When chips are down you know this fact.
You won't have to ask who's got your back.

William's Whimsical Words:

Getting along is only the beginning.
