    I saw a Black Man last night.

    His OPPRESSION only surpassed by his PAIN.

    Torment, Distress and Worry
    Burden of a past that is gory
    And still only knows half of the story


    I saw a Black Man last night..

    Robbed of CULTURE, LANGUAGE, HERITAGE AND IDEAS.

    Much MENTAL damage cannot manange with all the
    PANIC and FEAR with no love one can't hear
    Ruled by his tears... he drinks away the years


    I saw a Black Man last night...

    MISGUIDED faith let to great HATE.

    Screaming for revolution, sick of race related stress
    Angry and dependant in confusion
    Are we truly men...or just massa's mess?


    I saw a Black Man last night....

    He knows NOT from where he CAME.

    Is it *****, ****** or ***************?
    Afro-american makes him feel bigger
    But all of those are lies that
    Psychological Slavery has triggered


    I saw a Black Man last night.....

    There was a TIME when he was called KING

    Once had dominion over lions
    In chains we prayed for Zion
    Oh how sin blinds man
    Traded trust for a yoke of iron


    I saw a Black Man last night......

    So I asked him Why does he DWELL in a BOX?

    PRISON HOUSES..LOCKED
    Snared in holes from off the block
    Drug in sock loved nothing but Hip-Hop
    Such a sick joke..and we NEVER shocked


    I saw a Black Man last night.......

    He told me I just GOT to be FREE

    Freee....Freee

    I never want to see a BLACK man again....
    I want to see the MAN the Almighty send him here to be

    Win world lose soul...Defeat self become whole

    All praise to the Most High...all things are possible (yes, EVEN THAT!)

    It is always an honor to read from a script of a black man of wisdom.
