    Is being black all that bad?

    Just because we get a little mad.

    Just because we stand up for what we believe

    Just because we have so called nappy hair

    Just because it needs a little extra care

    Why doez everyone got to claim theyre mixed now

    Like being black is bad like we're not humans...but cows

    How did this all come about

    When people were asked of race..mixed is what they shout

    Im proud of being black...but sometimes its hard

    Cause so many people wanna play the other race card.

    Black is most certainly a beautiful thing and no one can take that away from any of us no matter what cards they choose to play, we still have to be who we are at the end of the day and that's black. I like this one.

    This is a great read, particularly right now when so many of us have been forgotten in the flood waters. Prideful flow.
