Systemic Cycles

You may not know this.

But…in 1931,

The US started

Deporting citizens.

American citizens

Were rounded up and shipped out

It seems crazy right?

I’m talking about

People of Hispanic descent

Most had been born here

Why did this happen?

I’m so very glad you asked

The reason is bad…

The Great Depression happened

The US decided

To stop caring for citizens

Of certain origin

History matters.

Those who want to hide history

Want to make damn sure

It’s repeatable.

Don’t fall for the rhetoric

Teach real history.
