    Since the first slave ship physically arrived
    Black thoughts have been poetically deprived.
    To every black man who exercise his rights.
    1000 get slaughtered, by the men in white.
    400+ years we've fought to be heard.
    Dr.king, malcom, fought just to be heard.
    Thoughts are hungary, but denny's wont serve
    They dont like blacks, and hide the fact.
    Blacks must expand the third eye radius.
    To the horizion line, beyond years of time.
    You bring us to this land against our will.
    To work unwilling, then us you try to kill
    We survive and enhanced your white country.
    As a endangered species you have to hunt me.
    I am more valuable than fort knox.
    But yet my soul is poor, and mind is locked.
    From society mental window, I talk to kinfolk
    I'm fu*k'd by the poloticians like a nympo
    For your info this isnt the home of the brave
    I am a african, and that makes you afraid

    The message in this, and the poetic rhythm and rhyme, is right on time....definitely food for thought.

    Preach, Black man...preach. Tell it.

    Great flow...keep'em coming.

    You need to visit voice chat http://www.destee.com/chat/ and let the Fam hear you read a piece or two. And let the Fam read a piece or two so that you can hear us. I'm sure the Fam would love to hear the passion from the poet behind this piece. Think about it.

    :thanks: for sharing your words of insight.

    This is a powerful piece. I really enjoyed reading it. Read it thrice.
