    Fear

    A raised eyebrow once I enter your stores, surveillance begins, it never ends…hawking me as I browse the merchandise, only when I forfeit the currency will that suffice the fear that has come over you… I can see it in your eyes… you want me gone, didn’t do a dayum thang wrong, but you still want me gone, it’s the same old song…Fear…The fear of diversity in your isolated communities…the pigmentation of my flesh has led you to feel unease…avoiding me like a rare disease…hiding your bigot ways till your handed that green…Ya color blind to that cash though…Yet you treat my black *** with out an ounce of respect… It’s the Fear…it consumes you… it has you all frightened when we cross paths, assuming I will take or even want what you have… you look you stare you glare, it’s so dayum unfair… I’m force to bare witness to your judgmental ways, as you gaze those prejudice eyes into minds…You have the audacity to express disgust & distrust and fuss, when it was your ancestors pushing my people to the back of the bus…Yet you raise ya chin up to me…But ya know… I’m gonna be tough & ignore your ignorance, cause its bliss… with violence I would face the risk…of feeding your ill-bred impression of me and how you small mindedly envision my people to be...You take pleasure in filling superior to me, believing where inferior, because of our God given exterior, but for 100’s of years we’ve be threw torture, hurt & pain, enough to make the average person grow insane, but we stood strong and played your demented game, cause we love who we are and will never fill ashamed…So if you have any fear, fear our strength as a whole, and watch us stand as one…THE FIGHT HAS NEVER ENDED IT ONLY JUST BEGUN!!!

    "You take pleasure in filling superior to me, believing where inferior, because of our God given exterior"
    I feel this cause it has happened to many people. Where I grew up lots of people were like this, but their ignorance is what made embrace myself more.

    The battle has only begun

    Although the battle has just begun
    I need you to know something
    The battle we are about to embark upon
    Will not even measure to the rest of them
    See my troops will focus on mental freedom, intellectual aspirations
    and getting your bigot ***** out of positions of power
    See many of you havent paid attention to my past brothers
    Malcom, King, Mumia, Gill Scott
    But spoken in famous words
    The revolution will not be televised


    Jelani, powerful and thoughtful flow. I appreciate your honesty and pursuit of awarness.

    Peace
