    Hey there Redbone!
    Lookin’ good…I love your skin tone
    Oh really? You love it?
    My Red Hair and Freckles?
    Society still don’t know how to treat me
    They bounce between Mr. Hyde and Dr. Jekyll
    Too bright, too light to give 5 on the black hand side
    Too black, too dark, not light enough to not have it rough
    Don’t mistake my words
    I know I’m beautiful in my blackness
    I’m just saying the world can be ugly in its whackness
    It’s always boiled down to the color of one’s skin
    No one seems to care about what lies within
    Within the mind
    Within the heart
    Within the DNA
    Just quit talkin’ and keep walkin’
    Calling yourself my brotha
    You just another motha
    Just Tired and Sick
    Of you thinkin with your ****
    How can we get over
    If you’re always tryna get on top?
    No difference between me and my sisters
    You want me cuz I’m light and you turn around and diss her
    Because of her midnight skin, cocoa breasts, black walnut feet, and ebony hair
    You fill me with despair and yet you’re not totally to blame
    Subliminal suggestions make you question your own identity
    Yeah, I might have been a house negro back in the day
    But just easily and readily accessible so that the master could have his way
    Ya’ll have been brain-washed
    If you can’t have a white girl
    Get a light-skinned black girl…best of both worlds
    Get off my back black man
    You don’t deserve me and you don’t deserve my sister queens
    Until you stop being a slave to the master and wipe your soul clean
    You want a Butter Pecan, Cinnamon, Honeybun, High Yellow, Light-Skin, Redbone to give you some?
    Get your **** together brother, because what you sellin’, I don’t want none!

    **Note: I know all brothers aren't like this. This was written specifically for a friend of mine that claims he has preference for light skin women over dark skinned women.

    I've been down this road a time or two. When we don't look within we always miss what's the most important. There is beauty within all our shades. Props to ya.
