    Afrocentric Madness
    By Manasia C. Thorn

    Mr. and Mrs. Back to Africa came to the hood
    Preaching and Teaching us that his knowledge was good
    After about 2 hours of ridiculing our lives, beliefs, morals and such

    These buster *** ****** had the nerve
    To ask for change to catch the bus

    We rushed them and gave them a few fists
    And the Ghetto Queens gave them a bullet instead of a kiss

    Afrocentric Madness
    So much knowledge to share
    All the way from what we eat
    To the way we wear our hair

    BUT IN THE END WHO REALLY CARES

    I just want to ask
    How can convince someone who worship Allah, Jesus and whoever
    To abandon their religion
    Which seems to bless them and free them
    Even though to you it seems like a prison

    How can you convince someone of your methods and message
    When they live better than you
    In their minds they want nothing you offer
    Of your Message they are always a scoffer


    Has your message ever turned someone from crack cocaine
    I seen a man convert to Islam and never again got involved in the crime game

    I saw a woman pray to Jesus for a husband
    And to her Jesus blessed her with a faithful man

    How can your message compare to that power?

    Can you convince them they are living a delusion?

    What do you have to offer that can tell them their success and stability are a white man's illusion?

    What can you give the man who making G's off of crack cocaine?

    Can you tell him to leave his fantasy land of money, for your world which looks bleak and mundane?

    How can you convince someone of your message when you rip them apart from the start?

    How can you even fathom coming to the hood with your message, when you've never lived here nor of our reality have you taken part.

    Can you convince them that they need to leave America for Alkebu-lan?
    Have you ever considered to whom your message will have an effect upon?

    Afrocentric Madness
    Is it Madness or Reality?

    I guess that is up to the reader to see...

    Madness or reality? Maybe a hint of both, most of what we experience has more than one side to it. I get what you're saying here, how do you lead what you perceive as being blind, if you've been seeing 20 20 with contacts your whole life. Write some more.
