    Just got through reading one of Earth's(my bad bruh, no disrespect) pieces and I wanted to post this. Just to let you know this is not the complete poem only part but here is part of This MicThis Mic

    We've been divided by economic lines, intergrated lies; skin pigmentation is better if you light!!!
    So we holler and yelp around that yellow gal--nose and lips so thin that burns and cracks...
    As crators and lines form, equalling two sides....but I thought we all came from Africa?!??
    Now stuck in America, the cross burned, children scared and scarred because a rebirth of hair can't take us to a promised land--so what do we do??!??
    Well let's all get on board!!--but behind who? Jesse? Farrakan? or that permed out fool Rev. Al?? Yea, that's what we need,
    another pulpit full of lies leading us far from self-acceptance.
    See, they will never accept this black skin, even though they doin' everything from collagen injections, to tanning beds, and botox--
    unlocking locks from the keys of a Kemetic society; as we struggle
    economically day to day damning the misery of being born black!!
    Because being Black means being on the bottom, being Black means
    counting your blessings, betting on education, while stepping up in the slums-
    Smiling....while everything around you--crumbles.
    Well I guess that's not all that all of us see, some of us do achieve, leave the slave ships at the bottom of the sea, as we enter corporate america,
    arm in arm with whi---....so intergration works simply for the price of your
    getto pass, but that ain't me so please pass that mic..........
