    It’s Very Necessary

    Is February really necessary
    As the month we honor black history
    Well in the other eleven months the ordinary
    Way to go is to deny black people their integrity

    Some pondered the need for Black Entertainment TV
    Well with all the lily white channels presented to you and me
    Over cable TV systems and satellite
    Most of the other channels were progressively white

    Some told us that the only things we were capable of
    Was making babies and living in out of wedlock love
    Many called us degrading names
    Playing to the max their racist skin games

    In many rural areas young black men
    Had a short school year way back when
    For they had to plant and harvest crops from the seeds
    The farmers grew to supply the world and nation’s needs

    And despite the Emancipation proclamation
    Christian America still embraced segregation
    As an acceptable biblical way of life
    Heaping on black people racial strife

    So getting back to the original question
    Without any hesitation or discretion
    As to is it necessary for February
    To be black history month… it’s very necessary

    a necessary evil...

    when considering the unjust system of a racist people...and their views of ALL others, not of their color...you KNOW--and accept--the necessity of ANY such opportunities...to enlighten the world of our WORTH. THANK YOU

    and the river floweth.
