    How could you be…

    When you were a child, I bet you used to sang :

    “If you lite…you aiight…if you brown…stick around….if you black…git on back !!!”

    Sadly, some things never change….

    Woe is the day that a black brutha King could so easily (dis)miss a black sistah Queen…

    And you say that you’re “pro-black”…how could you be…reachin’ alllllllll the way back …bisch slappin’ The Motherland like the “other” man…

    Boldy, it seems, your true essence came bargin’ through just when we thought we knew whom was who.

    Ghetto-sized self hatred spewed to the masses…whilst leaning back with satisfied grins. The enemy’s job is truly through…just look what he’s done to YOU; He has whitewashed (not brainwashed) you so throughally into believing that ecstacy only lies between ivory hued thighs…

    Like Me’Shell sang : “Visions of her virginal ([email protected] near) white beauty dances in ya head…you let my sistahs go by…soul’s on ice…”

    From all our rich chocolate rainbow from which to choose, a caucasoid vestige is what drives you …..INSANE… is what you must be; blinded by the RAPE in your own family tree. So eager to embrace such a racist creed…and still you sing

    “If you lite…you aiight…if you brown…stick around…if you black git on back !!!”

    Woe is the day that a black brutha King could so easily (dis)miss a black sistah Queen…

    “Pro-black”….how could you be ?
