    It’s not realized
    In the eyes of the Black man
    How his power has shaped this land
    He is more than pimp, ***** or thug
    He is exceptional, sent from above
    Black man when will you see
    Exactly who and what you’re meant to be
    Know your history
    Your right now
    Then create your forever
    Shame those that stereotype
    Who don’t know what type you really are
    Tell the truth of Kings, warriors, slaves and leaders
    Whose blood run through your veins
    Don’t fall victim to the self-hate mentality
    Where you see something black
    Figuring it’s “too black” for me
    Know this Black man
    This is how you were taught to be
    Its time to un-do what was done for so many years
    Eradicate all of those “loving black” fears
    Give our children more to be
    Other than baller and pimp fantasies

    Really though.

    Let it be known that we aren't a nation of thugs, pimps, & hoes.

    I dig your mind.
