    **********

    A ***** is quick to holla *****
    But he needs to switch
    To a mentality more conducive
    To producing
    BLACK unity
    The only hope for you and me
    If we are to succeed
    From the 21st century
    Into infinity
    Are you feeling me?
    Probably acting like you're not hearing me
    But what I'm saying isn't fiction
    Its reality
    Word up BLACK man that's how it goes
    Ain't no fire trucks around here so I don't see any hoes
    If you knew what I know
    Then before you switch, or hit her or call her a *****, you'd yell
    Baby I Think you're Cool as Hell
    I've never been a husband, but I've had a lot of wives
    And I've told a few lies
    That have messed up some lives
    I really don't know why
    Its like when my eyes see some BLACK thighs
    My intellect chokes
    And that's all she wrote
    I've spent the night with many different types
    From light bright and **** near white
    To Jett BLACK and even a dyke
    Now I know that wasn't right
    But that night, it was ALLRIGHT
    Now I done had it up to here with maroon weevs and gold teeth
    And all that other **** that gives me grief
    I don’t mean to dis you
    Just don't wanna get with you
    And judging from the past
    I **** sure won't miss you
    Been there done that
    Don’t want to go back
    I need a woman who knows how to act
    I need a headwrap chick
    Give me a conscious chick
    One whose mind is free
    With thoughts of BLACK unity
    Give me an African chick
    Give me an Asiatic chick
    One who can educate
    And mentally stimulate
    Who can over-stand the intimate intricacies
    Of the third eye and help me decipher what it sees
    A wise x to my y
    A lady
    Who can add to my 180
    And make a full cipher
    Or, it would be nicer
    If she had her own 360
    To make us a 720
    I know there are plenty
    Of women
    Whose intellect is deep enough for my mind to swim in
    This piece is not to make your ego swell
    Just to say
    Baby I Think you're Cool as Hell
    Cuz too many mother****ers
    Manufacture mumble mouth mental images
    Of BLACK women
    And call them pigeons
    Or ******* or hoes or sluts or tricks
    And that's why we limp through the Olympics
    How can you win a fight
    When your opponent is drilling you with lefts and rights
    Then you throw a left with all your might
    But take your right and hit your own self in the eye
    That adds up to a ratio
    That makes about as much sense and having a hungry crocodile give you fellatio
    But don't hate me though
    For exposing your punk ***
    And showing that you're like a school at 5pm…no class
    Judging from all the screaming and yelling you do
    If I had to choose the *****, its you
    BLACK Is The Color of Harmony
    But It’s The Color that Harms
    The Balance I Think Could Happen
    But It Takes Cooperation for Happiness
    Remember in the 50's when there was no room for us
    I mean BLACKs at the front of the bus
    When the BLACK man
    Was too oppressed to take a stand
    It was one of those *******, those hoes
    Who said "Hell No! My feet hurt, I will not go!"
    Or back in the days
    When we had to live as slaves
    It was one of those ******* who was brave enough to come
    And take her people to freedom
    But if one of them wimped out
    She whipped out
    The BLACK STEEL
    Pt it in their face and asked "Now, How do you feel?"
    "I came her to help my sisters and brothers
    and you will be free one way or another."
    Baby, I Think you're Cool as Hell

    Just My Thought for those Brothers

    Did my fowardness come out to strong or is it because I am a black woman that it seems so wrong? Did you call me a ***** because I told you I ain't having your ****? Do you think I need a man talking this foolishness? See, I don't need that M without the AN if that is what you think. Some Men take women to be ignorant sister but reality is when they meet real Woman calling them a ***** is a coward way of dismissing her.

    I feel your words.
