The Rainbow Responds to All the White Queer People who Voted for Trump


00:05
the rainbow responds to all the white
00:09
queer people who voted for Trump so it’s
00:14
like that huh
00:17
thought you could skip out on everyone
00:19
else now that you got your freedom now
00:22
that you’re able to get married no one
00:24
else matters
00:25
dear bones not remember the sound of a
00:28
police baton the brutal smack against
00:31
flesh the raindrop queer boy is
00:34
evaporating from their hospital beds
00:36
unsure if they should blame the injuries
00:39
or the illness what about the brown
00:42
skinned girls throwing bricks so you
00:43
wouldn’t have to did you forget them too
00:46
you say you like his authenticity when
00:49
you actually mean propensity for
00:51
genocide say make America great again
00:54
but your flag is made in China say you
00:57
don’t like identity politics but there
00:59
you go
00:59
sewing his name into my acronym did you
01:02
really think you could add a rump to the
01:04
tea and think I wouldn’t see y’all’s
01:06
asses hanging out pull up your pants
01:09
sweetie your racism is showing why don’t
01:12
you tuck your transphobia back into your
01:14
shorts the same world where you think
01:16
the word transgender can’t exist in is
01:18
the same one where you think they give a
01:20
fuck about you what you thought they’d
01:23
be room for you on this private yacht
01:25
thought you’d sail away tomorrow Lago
01:27
while the rest of them drowned over a
01:29
thousand five hundred species of animals
01:31
practice homosexual behavior and you
01:33
chose to put your faith in the one that
01:35
would toss you overboard
01:36
all furs matter as long as you can skin
01:39
them from someone else right I know
01:41
y’all don’t see color if you did you’d
01:44
see the blood on your hands y’all want
01:46
to be brown so bad you let the stains
01:48
turn to rust take the language say yes
01:51
Queen let’s have a Kiki but tell anyone
01:53
who speaks the native tongue to go back
01:55
home take the culture but your shadows
01:57
are the only thing that’s black about
01:59
you you take everything and remember
02:01
nothing you got a closet and the
02:03
colonizer running through your veins
02:05
there ain’t enough ocean could wash away
02:07
all that red but y’all used to wearing
02:09
that aren’t you after all it’s the color
02:12
of your party do you see me across the
02:15
sky and think I asked the Sun to make me
02:18
a flood again did you think I would be
02:22
your inheritance that’d be a pot of gold
02:24
instead of a closet full of skeletons
02:26
only thing y’all inherited was a taste
02:28
for blood you know I was a body once was
02:31
all ocean and rise and spill and scream
02:34
and you think you could slaughter in my
02:35
name and call it a difference of opinion
02:37
when you’ve only ever seen me for my
02:39
color never my rage never the storm that
02:41
brought me here don’t worry when you see
02:43
the shark starting to circle I’m sure
02:45
you’ll feel right at home and when you
02:47
call for me to save you the way you
02:49
called for the blood of my children
02:51
remember you took my hands when you took
02:53
their bodies remember that we are all
02:55
the same color when blood rises to the
02:58
surface I hope you know how to swim
03:01
[Applause]
