Crystal Valentine – “And the News Reporter Says
Jesus Is White”
“How can she say Jesus was a white man when he died
the blackest way possible? With his hands up,
with his mother watching.”
Heading into the new year, we’re counting down the top-viewed videos on Button from 2016! Coming in fifth on the list, “And the News Reporter Says Jesus Is White” by Crystal Valentine. Congratulations Crystal!
Note: This countdown list only covers a small fraction of the brilliant artists who let us share their work on our channel this year, and is by no means a definitive list of the “best” poems, simply the ones that got the most views. Take some time and check out more from the past year on our channel!
