    sick of hearing

    sick of hearing

    before: come to the light sista and get that perm out of your head. you must hate yourself and be denying God being unnatural... wanna be white

    after: do something with those naps.... don't u want to put a texturizer in it.... loosen the coils

    sick of hearing
    u still a virgin? why?
    ain't no man gonna want a woman with no experience
    (and no man wants to fall in either....stupid...)

    sick of hearing
    oh u got a degree?
    u must think u all that
    u went to a state college?
    that ain't nothing
    u ain't go to an hbcu?
    sell out
    u pledged?
    oh u one of those conceited sisters
    that likes to sling her hair around
    u know there ain't no such thing as a black greek right?

    sick of seeing
    black people disrespecting themselves
    black people disrespecting each other
    black people using the white man's model of "civilization"
    black people disrespecting themselves to achieve
    the white man's goals

    i'm sick of seeing
    i'm sick of hearing
    i'm sick of experiencing
    the destruction and erosion
    of morality
    of family

    peeved...
