    No idiom here can relate what I

    have always heard you say

    no Afro-sheen in kinky hair ~

    can pick and roll the fade

    no Marvin Gaye,

    commercials play,

    can bring us back the day

    no cornrow braids

    or Magic Shave...

    can process Black today

    no gold tooth grill :speechless:

    making news in Jet magazine

    no hot comb scene

    creates miss "Thang"

    or weaves ebony queens

    no amount of noise

    or bad boy toys

    reps the true Black man

    No two time loser

    gang banger :hammer:

    can free the motherland

    Certain reminders of "blackness" can make us feel some pride, but no, not enough to free the homeland. Keep giving us deep thoughts to ponder poet.
