I'm not feeling threatened. I'm not feeling oppressed. I'm feeling I can accomplish anything as long as I do my best. Am I just dreaming, am I blind or is the racism cleverly hidden in very good disguise. I thought the days of looking over our shoulders had passed. The days of wondering if this will be my last day to enjoy with family and friends simply because of the color of my skin. But alas I guess its not, I guess we are destined to be the people that America forgot, continuely serparated by labels and such. Constantly being bombarded by the negative stuff. Not given a chance to be free Still being underestimated about my abilities. So I guess I am threaten. I guess I am oppressed. Maybe I will not be allowed to accomplish anything even if I do my best. An American is what I am Not Black or African American Not a ******, Negro, Coon or Jiga-boo. I was born in this country just like you Will the color lines ever be erased? Or will we just continue to be separeated by labels and race. My glass ceiling in now broken My mind is now free. The American dream and that pie in the sky Is now available to me. I'm not feeling threatened I'm not feeling oppressed I'm feeling I can accomplish anything as long as I do my best.
