Intimidation

   Why are you so intimidated by me? 
   Is it because I undress you with my eyes and cause you to smile and see the real me?
   The potential that is hidden beneath a thousand brick waiting to be unleashed...

    Why are you so intimidated by me?
    Is it because I make you nervous and too afraid  to challenge the bureaucracy?
    The unjust and inhumane red tape that holds one race at ransom and the other roams
                                                         free.

    Why are you so intimidated by me?
    Is it my fierceness, my uncompromising or unwavering position?
    The stance that all should possess if we believe in
                                                                                    Equality
    FREEDOM for the blacks who are enslaved by their inferior mentality.
