I Refuse To Hate
Whether you are a man or a woman
by Randy McClave
Be you red or yellow or black or white,
Whether you're religious or an atheist
Or your opinion is wrong and not right.
Whether you're born in this country
Or in a faraway and distant land,
Whether you are gay or bi or straight
With or without wearing a wedding band.
Whether you are security or a police officer
Or the soldier guarding at the gate,
Whether or not that you believe as I do;
You, I refuse to hate.
Randy L. McClave
