Leveling Hierarchies

I grew up with this crazy idea,
That everyone was equal.
It took me years to learn,
The space each person takes.

Designated to different boxes:
Color, culture, gender.
Stacked up in a hierarchy,
Based upon prejudice and hate.

Now boxes come tumbling down,
In an angry, violent state.
Control shifting, toppling the order,
As minorities assert their power.
