Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul – Esperanto Lyrics

Are you polite or political?
Are you correct or cynical?
Are you as open-minded behind closed doors?
Would you join forces in this holy war?
Are you as offended when nobody’s watching?
Are you an attacker or a victim?
Do you carry the burden of this privilege?
Do you see this guilt as leverage?

Are you polite or political?
Are you correct or cynical?
Are you as open-minded behind closed doors?
Would you join forces in this holy war?
Are you as offended when nobody’s watching?
Are you an attacker or a victim?
Do you carry the burden of this privilege?
Do you see this guilt as leverage?

Empty empathy
Empty empathy
Empty empathy
Empty empathy
Empty

Don’t say “But where are you really from?”
Say “I don’t see colour”
Don’t say “Nice pair”
Say “I love the symmetry of you”
Don’t say “But I’m allowed to say that because I grew up in a black neighbourhood”
Say “My n……eighbour”

Don’t say “You speak my language surprisingly well”
Say “Do you speak Esperanto?”

Don’t say “Only a man is fit for this job”
Say “At least you tried, Karen”

Don’t say “I would like a black Americano”
Say “I’ll have an African American please”

Don’t say “White people can’t dance”
Say “Tom marches to the beat of a different drum”

Don’t say “So you’re from China, do you know my friend Hiro?”
Say “You must be blind not to see the difference”

Don’t say “We need to build a wall”
Say “I’m a world citizen, I don’t believe in borders”
