    Where is the love?

    I never thought that I could be my own enemy.
    Saying “quit trying to act black” when it’s clear to me
    That I am a black woman, as one can plainly see.

    May not have lived the hardest life, but why on Earth does that matter?
    Would I be more of a woman if my chest and butt were fatter?
    You call me this and that, but what makes you so much better?

    I want to know how one can go to church and still make fun
    Of someone who’s a little different because of where they come from.
    Black against black – always got brothers and sisters on the run.

    You don’t know me and I don’t know you.
    But you hate me because you don’t like all of the things I have and do.
    It could be the clothes I wear or, shoot, even the gum I chew.

    I never fight without a good reason behind it.
    How about being my friend instead of always having a fit?
