    I apologized for breaking my mama's dishes,
    apologized for getting two out of three wishes.
    I apologized for cheating on a school test,
    apologized for coming in second best.
    I apologized for breaking some girls heart,
    apologized for stopping what I didn't start.
    I even apologized to the armed force,
    apologized cause I made the wrong choice.
    I apologized for not staying on course,
    apologized when I got my divorce.
    I apologized for even getting mad,
    apologized for being a father, man and dad.
    I apologized for ever serving time,
    apologized when I didn't do the crime.
    Apologized for too many [email protected] things,
    the rent, the mortgage or gift I didn't bring.
    I'm sick of apologies and I ain't taking it back,
    I done apologized for every [email protected] thing
    but I won't apologize for being black!!!

    I apologized for being angry when I had every right to be
    I apologized for leaving although I wanted to be free
    I apologized for staying when I knew it best to go
    I apologized for not having the ability to let go

    I apologized on behalf of those who could not
    I apologized to the person who wanted my spot
    I apologized to the person who broke my heart
    I apologized to the person who gave me this start

    Now all these apologies.. what I never did see
    Is anyone ever apologizing to me...

    I guess in some way I do feel sorry
    but it's empathy
    I guess in some way I do feel sorry
    but it's sympathy
    I guess in some way I do feel sorry
    but it's compassion
    I guess in some way I do feel sorry

    but in REALITY

    there is not one single solitary sorry bone in me.

    Talk about a releasing flow. Put your foot down and said I'm not apologizing for being me. Tight write Keita, and great flows from Miss Lady and HopelisRomantic.

    I Don't Apologize For Being Black!! ...

    I don't always get to eat 3 full meals,
    got me so crazy, I'm popping pills.

    They break us down, every chance they get,
    but I'm black and proud ...with no regret!

    Can't send my child to a decent school,
    they go in Smart, come out a fool.

    Get under paid, on a 9 to 5,
    it's barely enough to keep me alive.

    I see them everyday, living high on the hog,
    then throw a bone at me, like they do a dog.

    They try hard to break me, but I still stand tall,
    for I honor what's written on my ancestor's wall.

    They tried to break my spirit, and every bone in my back,
    but...
    I Don't Apologize...For Being Black!!​
