    Equal

    Hatred and animosity, all for no reason
    Partial, side taking, as if we were seasons
    I don’t like this, I don’t like that
    It doesn’t matter to me
    As long as they’re not black!
    You can’t go here, You can’t eat there
    Every since the beginning of time
    You’ve been trying to compare!
    You don’t like my skin
    Yet you pay to get a tan
    “My daughters to good for anyone
    Especially a black man!”
    Blacks are illiterate
    Whites are superior
    Anything you can come up with
    To make us feel inferior
    But listen when I tell you
    Its all about interior
    And yes Mr. Racist
    This message is directed towards you
    Time and time again
    Blacks pull through
    Its not the color of the skin
    But the blood that runs within
    A heart is a heart
    Possessed by all men!
    So don’t treat me any different
    Because I’m not you
    No matter what you think
    We have nothing left to prove!
    Lock us up ,Ties us down
    We grow stronger
    Follow history and see
    We’re natural pro-longers!
    I know what I say might offend a lot of people
    Keep this in mind: I’m just a black man making himself EQUAL!

    Anyone who gets offended is simply hiding from the truth, and you spoke that here, flow on.
