    Every man born to this earth originated in animage of HE
    Whose brown skin and broad nose reflect the image of me
    Mandingo warrior, slave, opressed father, daring to surpass expectaions
    Overcoming obstacles, breaking barriers, replacing limitations with inspirations
    HE ,
    BLACK MAN, stolen from the belly of his mother's land
    Forced to sweat tears and bear the burdens of another man
    Skin covered in tones which wonder from
    night sky to sunlight
    Robbed of the oppurtunity to become a king in his own birth right
    Strong enough to withstand oppression of an anti-afrocentric society
    But living confined by the continued ignorance of racism and impiety
    Since the historical divide,
    BLACK MAN has been dejected and oppressed
    Beaten, bruised, abused, and treated more sub-human than his body would suggest
    Arms, legs, ears a nose, an upward stance and an understood dialect
    Should prove above all doubt that
    BLACK MAN is indeed MAN, and desrves respect
    Uneducated thug, absent father, hardened criminal would be the common stereotype
    For those oblivious to their part n his struggle, it's easy to believe the hype
    In a perfect world, the origins of man as African would be seen as spectacular
    But
    BLACK MAN be limited by the real: skin color, beliefs and a misconstrued venacular
