    On the color continuum of
    civilization we are the
    beginning and the end of
    the spectrum we come in all
    shades from pale cinnamon to
    past blue obsidian and we are all
    beautiful...

    black people...

    the descendents of the kings of kush
    Taharka and Shabataka the images of the
    African goddesses
    from Oshun to
    Isis blessed with the blood of
    Soloman, Aseneth, Zipporah, and "Jesus"
    we are

    beautiful black people...
