    When you speak of a statistic... KNOW that WE are the redefinition
    We are the demonstration of recycled royalty reflected
    We are the presentation of the resilience of the slave's seeds
    We are the dream and hope of forefathers buried toiling for freedom
    We are the showcase of the conductors of the underground railroad
    We are the result of bootstraps pulled through the mud to salvation
    We are the exponentially expounded talent tenth you try to bury
    We are the manifestation of generations of grandmother's prayers
    We are the dream that refused to be deferred or denied indefinitely
    We are the exhibition of what it means to get by any means necessary
    We are the juxtaposition of creative extremist and prayerful peacemaker
    We are the kaleidoscopic light through which we shall be defined

    We are actually a people that refuse to be defined. We are what you listed and more.
