    got a poem for you
    it's call Black History Month

    oh I'm sorry
    the new campaign
    says it's Black Future Month

    how can we move forward
    if we keep living in the past

    as history repeats itself and
    the gun shots blast

    the blue collared policeman
    who pulled me over today
    can kiss my black ***

    racial profiling forgot to
    turn on the headlights

    didn't get a traffic ticket
    so i guess i'm alright

    but i have to wonder
    would he have pulled me
    over if I was white?

    cruising through a neighborhood
    which is predominantly white

    the Bob O'Reily factor and his
    benefactors of white collar
    corporate criminals are no better
    than the drug dealers and street
    hustlers in black neighborhoods

    or these so-called "gangsta" rappers
    like Ludacris who he swears isn't
    anything above being a bad adapter

    yet the Osbournes are better suited
    than this guy he has to be the biggest actor

    who is he fooling certainly not me
    as I close another chapter

    until equality is achieved I won't even bother
    giving a second look

    to allow what is called Black History Month
    to be placed in our archives of lost and found books

    thank you Sista Steele and Richy Rich

    my laughter turned into tears and from tears rose my anger
    fighting injustice with words that cut like a knife for freedom

    *snaps fingers fingers* This right here is as real as it gets. Why should we confine the daily Black experience to one month --PUH-LEEZE! Thank you for telling the truth! Madd Respect!
