Tell me again, they were property

How are we to apologize
For the cruelty
Since we deny it all
From the first
The truth we despised
And by lying
We've made it worse
We are unworthy of the truth
We are the unforgiven
Perhaps even unfaithful
Overcoming slavery required us all
To become enlightened
But what about using people as slaves
Needs to have a light shined upon it
To see the wrong?
Whites and Arabs became the curse
To the continent of Africa
And treated animals more humanely
Than the Africans stolen from the land of their birth
