    "We" have been and still live
    With slavementality
    The "us" they refer to is still
    Shorted daily from library books to
    Gov’ment cheese
    And we stand in life for our daily dose of
    "Black" bashing and how
    "We" should turn the system over
    To who
    "Them" and "they" been controlling us for to long
    Some asked me: Why is the revolution
    Not going to be televised
    I said "it" was televised
    But
    "We" were to busy yes'ma'n' and no'ma'n to see it
    Or the cable got cut off cause "We" or "them" did not pay the "bill"
    "They" want us to give our hard earned
    Dollar to the struggle of "so-called" ground zero
    What "they" don't realize is "WE" meaning
    "YOU" and "ME" have been living at ground
    Zero since they stole us for an all might
    Dollar way back when...
    My zero started with having one
    BLACK parent and one Black Abeulita
    "They" said it don't matter that your tree is mixed up
    You got
    One/tenth of "that" in you so
    You get strike one
    My ground zero developed when my skin
    Grew darker than my mother
    And lighter than my father and
    "They" told me I was cause
    I had on/tenth of "them " in me.
    . And I still live with my own slavementality.
