Baby Momma’s

Reality dramas

That’s the Black woman of today

Comma

Daddy’s with cash

A man to smash

That’s the Black man of today

Dash

Womanizer

Local drug dealer

And ulimately

Dream killers



Being black today

Ain’t what it used to be

King Jr. would be sad

If he was here to see

His people are free

Yet they still are in chains

Degrading themselves

Just to make it rain

Teaching our children

That their value is in the dollar

That there’s not much worth

If you ain’t poppin’ collars

No value in simplicity

A lack of morality

Always stuck

In an unpleasant reality



But then there are some

Who love the book

They escape the hood

And get off the hook

They teach there children

To assimilate

Ignorantly promoting

Self hate

They grow to look down

On their brothers

Who become statistics

Of single mothers

Those single mothers

May also have daughters

Who grow with lack

Because they don’t have fathers

So they look to men

To fulfill their needs

Who only end up

Planting seeds

Then they become

Baby Mommas

Who consume themselves

With reality dramas

Looking for daddy’s with cash

Finding themselves in situations

Where men only want to smash

Because they are womanizers

Who make their living

As drug dealers

Who end up being

Dream killers



It’s sad

That it has to be this way

But that’s what it means

To be Black today

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
