    in you're pursuit of equality
    please don't bottle me
    in the group you're stacked up against
    cause your fight is my fight sis
    held down
    ever since we fell down
    seen as lazy coons
    bufoons and clowns
    i know we are funny
    but [email protected]
    can't you see
    they are trying to discredit me as your man
    locking me in hostile lands
    making it hard for me to stand
    up for mines
    so many of you are enriching your mind
    while so many of us
    are turning to crime
    i'm not blind
    to your bitterness
    me calling you a b*tch or a ho
    is a no go
    i know
    but the tv told me it was ok to say so
    you are not my foe
    and us fighting will eventually
    pay a heavy toll


    i'm on your side
    we fight this fight together
    in the same car we both ride
    just like on the back of the bus
    we can't let da white man break our trust
    cause he's against both of us
    not just me
    not just you
    do you really think
    that i have it easier then you
    maybe you do...
    but i don't
    and sit back and lose you
    i won't
    i'm saying all of this to say
    if you make it before i do
    i'm your brother
    please don't screw...

    me over
    and give me the cold shoulder
    while warming up the bed
    of mastas kin
    cause he's not the key holder
    he's a power freak
    and a slave molder
    please don't turn your back on me
    for a self proclaimed jehovah
    who's so willing to put my name
    on the next prison folder

    Ain't nobody leavin'

    :glasses:

    The poem was very interesting and nice. Seriously, I identify as a black feminist/womanist and I do not believe that my being a feminist has lessen my"black consciousness." It's made me question alot of the opinions that are about black liberation; however, I really believe it has enriched my life. (For the most part). Why feminism seen as a way for black women to abandon "black issues or concerns?"

    to answer your question:
    because some(not all) black feminist persue this important issue(sexism) with more zeal then the even more important issue.(racism)

    i wonder how black women would feel if black men started a liberation movement for black men rights...and in doing this fought for this with all of their combinded might, then whatever loose energy was left over, was given to fight racism for all black people...i really do not care who or what you identify with...my rationality(not any books) leads me to believe that if you are black in this country, you fight for black rights first, everything else comes second...just fighting for black women rights is selfish and in my eyes, not conducive of us ever getting to the promise land....together...now please do not get it twisted...i love it that my strong black sisters are fighting for womens rights...i'm just tired of seeing the divisions, which are a resultant of residual slave mentality issues, affect us in a negative way...i.e. (house n, field n, light skin black, dark skin black, man, woman)

    sadie my sista...if you are giving more energy to fighting for women...i don't agree, i'll never agree

    but i'm glad you are not leaving :)
    peace
