    In the tradition of
    The Black Condition
    The late edition we're still dismissing
    For your expressions are without question
    Forgetting lessons of White OPPRESSION

    MAN - your house is on fire

    CHURCH - singing to the choir

    HEARST - self-hatin' ill reaction

    WORK - can't get no satisfaction

    DRUGS - wanna take YOU HIGHER

    THUG - wire tapping biter

    BOY
    - how you left us hanging ~

    WORD
    - sorry n****r ACTING

    CLIQUE
    - bangers sabre rattling

    EARTH
    - how many want redemption

    FAITH
    - Practice what you're preaching


    ...WAIT!

    BLACK is so appealing

    To forgive and forget, is easier said than done. now to live without displaying our ultimate potential, means that the enemy has won.

    SAY IT LOUD!, I'M BLACK AND I'M PROUD.

    and I'm Proud of you too!

    Love On Poet! Love On!
