    bang....

    zoom....

    pow....

    now that all the adjective are thru....what now?
    while sitting at my cubicle i take a second
    to mentally look around...
    no need to fear my manhood juss cause my skin is brown
    and theres no need to talk about this warrior when the chips are down
    listen....
    do you hear that faint sound?
    yeah, thas the hum of my mp3 player and my toe tappin da ground
    i know ur not use to a black man with dreds being smarter then u
    i know ur not use to a black man with dreds making more money than you do
    but little do you know
    i probably had to work 3 times as hard as you
    just to put some meat in my stew
    but all you see is a legalized alien telling you what to do
    ha...but my ancestors built this country
    while your ancestors cracked da whip
    and with their white hands they turned black skin red and blue
    and eventhough it's easy to hold a grudge against you
    i'll just keep producing these detailed analyst reports
    while you continue to look stupid like gooney goo goo
    cause only a fool fears what they don't understand
    when they never have tried to understand
    the changes of the tide
    and the changing imprints in the sand...

    Well said poet ..^5
    don't think for one second, they didn't spot the:deal: on the wall..and that's what they fear the most.

    Quote of a lifetime:

    Where your dreads with Pride...
    for in it lies your 3rd eYe.

    I loved how you ended this piece with the above line, it makes the impact of the piece linger in my mind. Brotha I'd like to say if they don't know now they know. But the truth is they'll never know, but the impact of this piece will be felt.

    anyone with brown skin and holds a position they
    believe should be their's, simply cause, white skin is in.
    knows how this poetic non-fiction story goes.


    I enjoyed this strong write!

    soldier

    i'm loving your strength out there on those front lines

    you speak of what we all go through

    i like this line

    i'll just keep producing these detailed analyst reports
    while you continue to look stupid like gooney goo goo
    cause only a fool fears what they don't understand

    keeping doing your thing keep breaking those stereotypes
    and it is hard for us throwback brothaz freedom fighters you know what i'm talking about

    keep that head up keep fighting don't ever let up

    i'm in the same boat

    i mean picture this in your head: Da Street So'ja in corporate America

    or maybe not

    lol

    i think a collab between Khasm and So*ja would register on the reichter scale
    you think
