    You don't have to apologize
    It don't matter to me
    I know who I am
    And I am as beautiful as can be
    Not just beautiful on the outside
    But my beauty goes beyond skin deep
    You see everything about me I have inherited from the elite
    Now when I say elite let me make myself clear
    I am referring to my black kings and queens who paved the way for me when I was not here
    My girl Harriet held down the underground railroad
    While my girl Leane was singing a note
    Meanwhile my man Fredrick was learning how to read
    Athur Ashe was on the field
    And Madame C.J. Walker was in a lab wondering how she could enhance beauty
    They thought that it was an era that would soon come to an end
    But they thought wrong they need to guess again
    Because we have become more equipped and will no longer limit ourselves to entertainment
    The rate at which we continue to sting is faster than Muhummad Ali moving in the ring
    My man Bill Cosby is reaching millions
    My girl Oprah is sitting back counting her billions
    Micheal Jordan is still moving all about
    Al Sharpton trying to make it to the White House
    Now I have to give it up to my man Johnny for doing his thing in court
    You see he helped lay the pavement for me to walk
    You see I want to be a lawyer too
    So I would just like to say Johnny rest in peace and thank you
    We have come across a new generation of young black princes and princesses today
    That with God's strength will continue to pave the way
    From the bakery work to the solider
    From the garbage man to the stockholder
    But please my people what ever it is that you do always remember the black, red, and green, and not just the red, white, and blue.
