    You sit smugly in your Brooks Brother's suit
    Wing Tips, and blonde hair combed to one side
    poised with an arrogance that is synonomous with
    a certain kind of prejudice
    while you claim liberal status and viewpoint
    with a supposed disassociation
    from conservatist philosophy and
    superior white mindset
    nodding in agreement that
    blacks HAVE made
    considerable contributions to American society
    but your almost non-existent capacity for
    BLACK HISTORY
    only allows you to mention
    our impact in a cultural sense
    giving aplause and all praises where
    you feel they are due
    but now i have a bit of news
    we also have political and socio-economic views
    fight diligently against gentrification
    quality of education
    to hell with assimilation
    because we are America
    taxes and dues paid
    right of passage
    signed, sealed and delivered
    so if you want to see me dance
    i'll achy breaky on your unassuming soul
    want to hear me sing
    i'll harmonize present day injustice
    want to watch me be entertaining
    i'll entertain your thoughts and mind
    want to silence me
    you'd have to kill my spirit
    the voice of BLACK America
    resonates eternal...

    White Priviledge is a *biaaatch ain't it?!?! ... it's unfortunate that we as black folk have to continue to speak louder than they -- in order to be truly heard!

    This is a tyte-*** piece!;)

    If They only knew....

    that we are glorified..
    built for the hard times....
    And we study the time line...
    of our forefathers....

    We are one...
    in a million...
    grown into a billion...
    yet still considered minority...
    Yet mentally and physically...
    We are one in our society....

    A quiet voice is never heard....
    But as we do....
    We yell out the words....
    And think that just because your skinner i different...
    And ours is always shown....
    Regardless of the misconception...
    We are very well known...
    From the streets...to the corporate office...
    To Italy...back to main....
    Tell me...how many cultures....
    can say the same....
    And we shall overcome...
    And will never be tamed!!!!

    I enjoyed this...I really did....I just had to add a little...:p
    nice piece....
