    The 400 years

    For 400 years, you have brainwashed us
    through your kind of education
    to make us fools.
    For 400 years
    you work to make us look inferior,
    For 400 years,
    you ate our corn and looked at us with a scorn.
    Treated us badly on slave ships
    For 400 years,
    cracked your whip and made our blood run cold
    For 400 years.
    We are still alive, strong, healthy and uniting.
    we shall lead ourselves to the land of liberty,
    where we shall live a fulfilling life,
    be free and leave behind the horrible
    400 years of torture
    for the black man
    NEVER DIES.

    Ibrahim

    If our spirits could have been killed, they would have been, but we are too mighty for that. There's power behind your words.
