    **** you Taxi
    Can't you see
    My briefcase is by Coach
    My suit by Armani
    Yes, I'm going uptown
    But not too far
    Just cause I'm Black
    Don't mean I'm going to a blood-bath bar

    Fool I went to Harvard
    I have a MBA
    I can buy you and sell you
    And turn a profit
    Any old day
    I'm down with Dow Jones
    Expansive is my financial range
    I work on the street
    I have a seat
    On the New York Stock Exchange

    I should have called a limo
    Deal with folks who understand
    I'm not what you see on the evening news
    I'm an educated and profesional man

    Racist-*** cabbies
    Just got here off the boat
    He probably thinks I could only steal
    This hand-made cashmere coat

    Some things I guess will stay the same
    To more than many
    I'm just another nigha
    Being passed bye for anything white
    Now how in the hell you figure?

    Go ahead, don't stop
    But as you speed away
    Hear me
    Understand the truth
    In my heart-felt talk
    Like always, I'll get where I'm going
    Even if I have to walk

    BE

    one of the most..

    beautiful sights to witness..

    is a man who is honest about himself and proud of who he is and where he comes from, and not let anyone take that away from him....

    See,

    I had a serious run-in with a cab situation when this fool acted like he didn't even see me and my boys in the cross walk okay? I was pushing one in a stroller and holding one by the hand and he go'n come rolling up on us like he wasn't go'n stop!!!!!!??????? You bet know I rushed on ova to his side of the **** car and beat on his window to roll the mutha down...had me some witness gathering...OH DON'T GET ME STARTED CAUSE I WAS RET TO BEAT THIS PERSON OF ASIAN DESCENT DOWN IF I HAD TO DRAG HIS *** OUT THE CAB MY SELF!!!!!!!!!

    anyway, somebody took my kids to the sidewalk while somebody else pulled me off of him cause he had somehow got out the cab and I had somehow got him around the neck (he was about 100 pounds with bricks in his pockets), but he looked so pitiful, shaking and sh_t so I just told him "SAY SORRY!" And he did.

    I know I have anger issues. I need prayer. :D

    Love these things on your mind, Mr. Beat. Remember my special copy.
