    What Am I suppose to think?

    I see your tanning I am already
    a burnt umber brown, your getting
    collagen treatments for fuller lips
    mine are full and luscious by genes

    I see you braiding your long silky hair
    “now my nappy hair” been braided
    since birth

    What am I suppose to think?

    You say you don’t want to look like me
    act like me or talk my talk
    Now all I see is baggy pants, rapping my rap
    and walking my walk

    See I can easily fit in your world
    “Hell I graduated from school”
    been taught to follow rules, its been
    instilled in me since my ancestors
    slavery years.

    It’s your fears that I detect, that got you
    trying to get with the program, like they
    say if you can’t beat’em join them

    All that you go through and no matter
    what look you turn out, you will
    never know what it is like to be
    black like me!

    So don’t get too excited you will
    never have the sanctified shout of
    blackness. deep dirty dark black
    like me

    What am I suppose to think?
