    Black is feared you don't go there
    Indoctrinated by all you hear
    Mumbo-jumbo Afro weird
    N-word that they all endear

    Black people we just don't care
    Ain't got a sense for living here
    White power don't want to share
    How in the world do we persevere

    Hell I'm scared to be myself
    Educated got a little wealth
    Afraid of Black I'm someone else
    High yellow you down with stealth?

    Can't jump like Donald Trump
    Flying high to hide my rump ~
    Mama said don't even front
    Who you are ain't in that blunt

    No ladies' man this ill equipped
    Can't dance with mother's wit
    Confidentially I ain't her stick
    Talking proper sure sends her fits

    I do agree, we're on the ...
    "Most Wanted List"
    ...and they want us, dead or alive

    Hi 1poet
    it's so crazy
    and true
    sometime you can become
    afraid of being yourselve
    and then later confused WHY
    you express this very nicely brother

    very nice drop poet
