    Blonde cornrows...
    Blue eyed soul...
    Listening 2 Hip-Hop instead of rock & roll.
    Wearin' baggy pants that they have 2 hold up with their hands.
    I wonder if it all started when Onyx came out with "Slam".
    There is no such thing as Ebonics cuz they adopted our phonics.
    Yet they hate us?

    Dappin' down the street...
    Bangin' rhythmless beats...
    Tryin' 2 thug but never feelin' the heat.
    Livin' in the 'burbs but claimin' the hood...
    Worshippin' Eminem cuz he's Hip-Hop's most famous 'wood.
    While their music dies, ours intensifies,
    Cuz they're infatuated with any culture that keeps them mystified.
    I've even heard some say the forbidden word...
    Best believe they got checked quick.
    Yet they hate us?

    I've said many times that I'd hate 2 be white 4 many different reasons,
    But the latest is cuz their own race is something they don't believe in.
    So they reinvent themselves into something that they can never be...
    Because we are who & how we are is the main reason they despise us.
    And they hate that the majority of their people are having a black identity crisis.

    mslusciousb, your opinion has been duly noted & respected

    BUT...

    Gorillas, chimpanzees & humans are all from the same family tree of primates, but does that mean that they are alike? Not at all. Just like Rottweilers are completely different than Chihuahuas, yet they are both dogs. God seperated us many centuries ago, & as we were seperated, we assumed completely different identities, hues, & traits.

    seduction29, I thank U with all of my being.

    My Brother who's writing endears my heart...

    sho u right...

    Identity crisis is exactly the diagnosis

    they no longer have a culture...everything
    within their so called culture was taken
    from someone else...look at the English
    language...it's merely a combination
    rooted within many other languages...
    that most of them don't even speak...

    Power to the Positivemindset...may it spread throughout the subconscious!
