    Ebony quotes lines from a magazine
    Lightening his complexion with his stride
    His diction is a racist to his struggle

    His three- piece suits laugh at do-rags
    Trading hi-fives for phony handshakes
    Processed mind damaged roots to his past

    He wears makeup to hide his suntan
    Cuts his nose off to spite the African
    Acceptance was the plan

    Ebony’s an athlete with track marks of insecurities
    A slave escaping his grave just to tell Master on me
    The boy who painted blue eyes on his mama’s dreams
    The man who traded his ebony soul for an ivory society

    He likes his women blonde with no opinion
    Never nappy with supportive ambition
    His first girlfriend put the fist on his pick
    His wife burned flesh with revolutionary whips

    Ebony says sisters are too sassy and confident
    Money hungry for a paycheck
    But when you’re rich
    I don’t see them spending it!

    Black history is the day he got away with murder in the first degree
    My sisters and brothers please come and save me
    Walk with me
    Talk with me
    Now is the time for black unity
    At least until the jury votes, “Not guilty”!

    The word play and message are off the hook. I especially loved these lines:

    Ebony says sisters are too sassy and confident
    Money hungry for a paycheck
    But when you’re rich
    I don’t see them spending it!

    Bullseye!!!! But the entire piece is splendid!!!!
