Ain’t nothing like a wake up call !
But you know inferior people will always believe inferior things in efforts to support their superiority dreams. I have a legitimate question though, and this ain’t one of those questions where I think I know the answer and I am just trying to get you to think. I really wanna know what the hell is wrong with black service workers and with no disrespect especially our (women). We are disproportionately rude, ignorant and plain old nasty. Do our people somehow believe that by acting this way they are proving that they are above the job that their education or lack thereof has forced them to take.
Girl, I am feeling you, sometimes strength in a woman, a black woman at that, is wrongly interpreted as arrogance and pride, b ut girl, do your thing! eventually they'll catch on that if you can't beat her, join her!!!
Gurl, this poem is the bomb...so right on. Thank you so much for posting. It is always shocking to hear something like this in the corridors of "intellectual" society, but it happens more often than we realize. I remember an incident where my father and I were cleaning a prestigous office owned by a wealthy person of the community. I happened upon a drawing of a black man tied to a tree. He had a HDO because there stood before him, a naked white woman. It was then that I learned that some get a kick out of the way black men respond when they see a white woman. I showed it to my dad and he was furious and embarassed. He cleaned a number of offices and had seen this same picture in another office. He later learned that this picture was being passed around among many business owners. This is sad.
but now that im waking from my mental slumber i am seeing the not so hidden side of "them against us" if you will. hell i already have three strikes against me. I'm, black, I'm a woman, and I am begining to scare the hell outta white folks .....
