    THE BLAK MAN SAGA CONTINUES...

    Being a Blak Man
    Is not about the scheming
    Or exercises in futility
    Your boys claim it to be

    It’s not about the bling bling
    Or the hype of the streets
    Or your latest crime
    You’re trying to beat

    Being a Blak Man
    Isn’t about hiphop
    Or str8 partying
    That don’t stop…rocking
    To the bebop the world drops

    Being a Blak Man
    Is standing up for right
    When wrong surrounds you
    …As we march through the concrete jungle
    Of chalk outlines
    Defining the life of
    Yet, another, brutha

    In the community of
    You and me
    To each one
    Teach one
    The lessons aren’t over
    ‘til it’s done

    In this day it seems like they all want to tear yall up and tear yall down. I will not allow society to take down my beautiful brothas. I love my brothas and will continue to stand by your side.
