    off the dome...polishing the skillz...


    never
    yep...
    i said the word
    and spoke the sentence that
    entails it--

    never could i
    become what
    was to be made of me--

    thru slavery--
    and the
    planting of narcotics in my ghettohood

    to institutionalized racism
    and the imprisonment of me--
    or those of my color

    see--
    those are my brothers when--
    man not of my tan committ the same crimes--
    five times as much

    (they dont look for them though)

    how could i live to
    call myself american
    and denounce my africanity
    when i am
    hated
    everyday
    because
    of it

    united we stand--
    divided we die

    integrated public places--
    segregated minds--

    "hidden" racism
    that's not so hard to find

    reinvented notions
    overshadowing the
    older signs of the times--

    how could i live to wave this flag--
    when i'm an uninvited guest in this land.
