    Are U still a hero if U die defore U can save anyone?
    Are U considered hard if you're quick 2 pull a gun?
    Are U gay if you're sympathetic 2 the woman's plight?
    Are U a coward if you'd rather talk out your differences than fight?

    Would U be considered a snake if take a woman from
    someone who abuses her?
    Why would a woman stay with a man that's constantly untrue with her?
    What happened 2 the time when a woman with colored lenses
    & extensions was called a fake?
    When did dudes start thinkin' it was cool 2 wear extension dred/braids,
    or what I call draids.

    What's the deal with women yellin' at men & tauntin' us,
    sayin' "go ahead, hit me",
    Knowin' that once the hand's raised, they're 2-wayin 5, tryin
    2 get us thrown in the clink?
    Why is it that some dudes do it?
    Are you ignoring me when I start gettin' deep?
    When will people start listening more than they speak?

    Why is Bush the president?
    Didn't Gore officially win the election?
    What happened 2 the votes that were somehow marked incorrect?
    Why couldn't the U.N. inspectors get enough time 2 thoroughly inspect?
    Didn't AmeriKKKa say it was unjust 4 Iraq's media 2 show images
    of AmeriKKKan soldiers that were slain?

    When did white kids start sittin' in the back of the bus?
    Who's braidin' their hair?
    When did brothers start saying "I don't care"?
    Are we gonna lose our culture by commercialism?
    Will christians ever converse with Islam?

    Have U ever heard the stories about the Crusades?
    Why do people believe their souls will be saved by goin to a temple
    that's man-made only on Sundays?
    Doesn't the Bible say that your body is a temple?
    Why are there so many religions whose members aren't spiritual?
    Is there an omniscient higher being that will pass judgement on the
    end of days?
    Why did we become slaves?
    How???

    I FEEL THIS 1

    bcuz this world is caught up in the thought that nothing will be perfect and even though that is true, when we try to strive to be perfect we are shot down bcuz we can't be perfect and from my point of view----them classifying us like that is the only reason why dreams die--------------bcuz we aren't given the opportunity to show the world that what we have is all we can give bcuz that is all we have. see love for the slack, multi-colored and black folk should be excepted bcuz no one else is giving any so they need to take it cuz that's all we got----------do u agree, or is it just me??????????

    Mindset,

    This was a deep piece. You pose many pertinent, important questions that we need to constantly seek the answers and once they are found re-ask the questions and seek for a deeper reason for the answer. Keep scribing and provoking thought.

    Whoa...

    You've sent me spinning a tidal wave of inquiries...
    Positive...although you've been here for a short while...
    I feel I should "Welcome" you again...because this
    is just how much I'm enjoying having your mind...
    a part of this family...

    WOW...thanks for sharing this!
    My mind has been touched...
