    Who was call’d in to lead the caldron…When the Civil Rights Movement was scaldin’?...Who else but James Baldwin? And Alice let’s come out of the Wonderland….And I hope you ain’t wonderin’…Why all of these malice talkers…Turn the Color Purple when finding Alice Walker…Was in fact a Bi, when you was helpin’ blacks get by…And some turn their backs and “Sign,” and start askin’ why? And Langston Hughes Are they thankin’ you…For comin’ out they closet while changin’ shoes…To walk for equality and you paid ya dues?…Now all of sudden cats are rearrangin’ views…And George Washington Carver...alleviated the pains of slaves crossin’ the harbor…It must be me, because I thought biggin’ up Tuskegee…paved the way for the Georgian HBC’s…Is being like Lorraine Hansberry a sin? Maybe…But we need more Black politicians like Mr. Reeves, but y’all still think Ken’s crazy…And what about Ma Rainey and Gwen Avery? Now what does sex attraction…Have to do with leading my people to action…Now I’m just askin’…Because you were askin’…Whose really fightin’ on our side?…Now I’m answerin’ it was George Middleton and Claude Mckay…And yes the people called them gay…But these Gay Black men and women created the SQUARE so Blacks WON’T REMAIN ONE-SIDED!

    Hmmmm! Something to
    think about and consider!

    Sexually preferences has
    never been an issue for
    me.

    Some of my dearest friends
    and family are gay, and when
    the time came for them to
    get my back, They never
    once hesitated to stand
    strong and firm!!!!!

    Loved your drop!!!!!!!!
