What Color is Your Privilege?

September 13, 2022


“Serving a truth serum for hate and hypocrisy, F.I. Goldhaber is writing with a hammer and speaking with a tongue of fire. In What Color is Your Privilege?, they sing a book-length blues song decrying racial, gender, religious, and sexual intolerance in America. With courage and a rejection of conventionality rarely found in contemporary verse, this book shines a bright, beaming light on the ‘hostile world’ we live in and the revolution being fought for the soul of America.”

— John Warner Smith, Louisiana State Poet Laureate 2019-2021, Author of A Mandala of Hands and Spirits of the Gods  (johnwarnersmith.com)

From “Poetry”

I used to write poetry about

nature and food, love and cats, people

and places I observed. But, now, it

seems more and more I write poems to

berate what I see in this country.

So much hatred comes with so many

handles: racism, misogyny,

sectarianism, bigotry,

homomisiasm, nationalism.

How can I not excoriate the

horrific injustice, abuse, the

inequality, and corruption?
