    Romanovsky And Phillips Be Political, Not Polite текст песни

    Be Political, Not Polite

    (Language is a barometer of hatred and prejudice. We must be
    Vigilant in recognizing and discontinuing the use of words with
    Which we oppress each other.)

    When you speak you often use
    Some racist word or sexist phrase
    That makes me stop you in your tracks
    To note the error of your ways
    And I know you find it boring
    But it seems to me the only way
    To correct you, to object to
    The hurtful things you say

    Right the wrongs of human rights
    The risk you take can save a life
    Silence keeps us all in darkness
    We can’t change it overnight
    But we can shed a little light
    Be political, not polite

    I cannot be satisfied
    Knowing just how much you care
    I want an ally with a voice
    Defending me when I’m not there
    ‘Cause being actively supportive
    Is the greatest gift that you could give
    By demanding understanding
    We can change the world in which we live

    Words can hurt, words can heal
    Make us think, make us feel
    And they’re every bit as deadly
    As a bullet tearing through the land
    For if our words create the climate
    Then the blood is on our hands

    Every time we hear a joke
    That takes a shot at someone else
    If we speak up for their rights
    We are speaking for ourselves
    ‘Cause we will never have true freedom
    ‘Til everyone of us is free
    From the silence and the violence
    That’s become our history
