    I am scared every day
    But I am not afraid
    See, I walk through
    This ghetto life everyday
    Blind folded like
    Blind @ss Ray
    Subconsciously, I fear
    The thought of my fellow man
    Not knowing his thoughts
    Or what he as planed
    I fear because of
    The political views
    Of that racist white man
    White supremacists,
    Nazi wanna bee’s
    And that dang
    Klu Klux Klan
    Lynching people just like me
    Because of the color of our skin,
    And persecuting them
    Because of their religious believes
    And scared of us
    Because he wants to be just like we
    Because of our dominate jeans
    Look at me
    Look at me
    Look at me with my beautiful tan.
    ****, I am proud of who I am
    Puerto Rican as ever
    Latin, African, and Indian
    See, mentally and physically
    You wish you were
    just like me
    Not a man
    who’s pigments burn
    By the beauty
    of the sun’s rays
    That portray images
    of the original first man​

    Yes, there are those who want to be like us on the one hand, then want to persecute us because of what we are on the other. This flow was on point poet.
