    I sing free-
    dominates all closed minded
    those who view is blinded
    my means of finding purpose
    the purpose
    is to to reiterate the title
    POLITICAL EQUALITY
    to reiterate that I confide in
    POLITICAL EQUALITY
    on this land where my ancestors died to break free
    of all the holds that was bestowed upon me
    I am hated because I exist
    simply dropped from the race
    b4 the relay came
    instead of shooting the target
    I became the choice of aim
    I cried shame
    but the system
    heard the story
    seen the movie and was anxiouly awaiting the sequel
    of another being trying effortlessly to be equal
    POLITICAL EQUALITY
    Demand it Loud!
    Declare it Proud!
    POLITICAL EQUALITY
    we fought hard to make a sound
    a voice of a thousand man
    came as light as a child
    to the ears of society
    repercussions mild
    they smiled quoting "They'll never get it."
    and i shed tears
    in fears that the future generations wouldn't see
    that the struggle has not stopped and we must rise
    in unity
    POLITICAL EQUALITY
    United we stand
    divided we fall
    POLITICAL EQUALITY
    if we don't stand for something
    we will have nothing at all
    Distract them with thing like
    "Acting White" or
    "Talking Black"
    "Mexicans drive like this"
    "Arabians talk like that"
    Maybe if we turn them against theirselves
    they won't see see our inferiority
    classify them by characteristics
    and label them "minority"
    Who am I?
    POLITICAL EQUALITY
    Must you ask why?
    POLITICAL EQUALITY
    Hated because I am not because of WHO I am!
    Enuff Said!

    Dear Fam,
    Have you ever once in you life wrote a piece and when you read it you say,
    "That's Me!"? This piece means so much to me because it is me! Be brutually honest on what you think, please.
    *****Nfinite Blessings to all My Fam*********

    Our ancestors died not for us to all fit into one mold, but for us to be able to reach for any star, and be who we are...that's what I gather from this piece. This was a strong piece, and I enjoyed the vibe.
