    My eyes are mysty but my ears are clean...
    I hear what you say..and know what you mean...
    Placed upon this earth centuries ago...
    What is our true place...
    **** i don't think nobody knows...
    Acceptance from someone who dispise me...
    **** dhat...
    I just take what i need....

    What goes around comes around...
    That hold true...
    But ****..this has been going on for centuries...
    When will we get our due...
    Respect is what we ask for...
    Equality is our dream...
    All our protest....
    And to get this...at what extreme...
    Because of views of our nation...
    Are we not included in the emanicipation proclamation...
    Are we not one of gods creatures...
    Or is it because we don't have his features....

    **** trying to prove a point...
    **** we here now...
    And between the white and the black man...
    All **** is going to hit the fan...
    A war within our own nation...
    What are the allegations...
    And at what stations do you plot out the maps...
    When will we hit....
    Will it be known....
    We have an anger inside that we cannot deny...
    And an envy due to our lack of equality....
    Because we get less quality for a our money...
    Secrets kept from our society...
    The government...supporting the other societies....
    Help other countries....
    As ours grow rich in poverty...

    We are at a stand....
    Yet not sure if we want to hold hands...
    Because we can't even classify each other as equals...
    And we are suppose to be a family...because we are the same type of peoples...

    Soja: I enjoyed the read but i had to say something...Especially when i just read an article in the AJC and it was talking about the stats on how whites and blacks view our society and the views are totally different..and where whites think everything is gravy...blacks disagree. Then i read another article yesterday that friend of mine sent me about this white guy who is a speaker on racism and the stats that he took and the different issues in different states that he experienced and white peoples reactions to his hearings... and then I read this..Man i had to say something...:D But i love your words...they are always so deep and motivating...keep giving me more!!!!
