    Turn your TV
    to C.B.S.,
    that's exactly
    what you see...
    B.S. ...
    More newscast spins
    in events
    where we truly progress
    that white biggots
    truly protest.
    One of our prodigies
    got poked and prodded
    with reverse racism labels
    because she mixes
    truth and poetry together
    and lays it unapologetically
    on the table,
    and got educational
    while visiting institutions
    bent on erasing truth
    about the methods, causes, and effects
    white slave owners used
    for black enslavement,
    citing the bondage of both
    black Africans
    and America's black natives.
    They called it "offensive",
    but the real is
    that it truly hurt
    to hear truth from the mouth
    of a seven-year old
    that chose
    to do research
    and opened up her soul
    to hear our ancestors' cries,
    bringing forth forceful truths
    that shattered the transgressors' lies.
    And the best part of this
    is that this writer, actress,
    and fellow paper terrorist
    was trained at home
    by parents doing their job,
    making sure lies
    didn't invade her dome.
    You would think
    once the truth hit home,
    the transgressors' descendants
    would admit their ancestors' wrongs,
    offer repentance
    and reparations as pennance
    so in the future,
    the issue would be left alone.
    But those who want you
    to believe B.S.
    brought their complaints
    to C.B.S.
    to influence the masses
    with a false, well-plotted basis
    to call her and her family
    a pack of racists,
    but have yet to report
    certain white parents
    brainwashing their kids
    with lies about the black man
    who grow up with the ambition
    of joining their fathers
    as members of the Klu Klux Klan
    or certain white parents
    who put anti-minority
    ideas in their children's heads
    before tucking them into bed.
    The whole point
    of the blatant media attack
    was to discredit the facts
    brought by a seven year-old girl
    who's young, blessed, and black
    with backbone to boot,
    because she might inspire
    other kids her age, black and white,
    to seek out the truth;
    afraid of the prophecies about
    the mouths of babes and sucklings,
    mad because the weight of truth
    doesn't have her knees buckling,
    scared that she'll find and break
    the barriers they tried to hide,
    fearful that she will unlock the door
    to freedom with God on her side
    and provide
    that information to her people.
    Cointelpro might target her
    because, to this racist nation,
    souls like hers are considered lethal.
    Her name is Autumn Ashante,
    and her words are worthy to hear.
    Please, open your eyes, minds, ears
    and souls to her words
    before Cointelpro
    causes her to disappear,
    and the result of her death
    is you being left
    stuck to see B.S.
    on C.B.S.
