Black history

It amazes me They say all men were created equally But that’s denied throughout history Theirs starts with constitutions revolutions and bravery They tell us ours is gangs chains and slavery It’s pretentious And I’m offended You started the race just so you could win it And they did…well they did Until we realized that an eagle can’t be judge by its ability to be a pig False metrics A ruler being held by media outlets rendering our image helpless They narrate that our great minds are bipolar, out of order or just selfish Encourage us to swallow your dreams Beat our women , eat our young and wash it down with the tiniest sips from their revenue stream And we say nah Trick no good Ms Maya Angelo knew Sojourner too cause Rosa didn’t move so Mlk can spread the truth I’m not the smartest man on earth but if I wanna change how history looks The first thing ima change is what’s explained in our history…books Long live Babylon America the great its the M night Shyamalan planet of the Apes Long live Babylon America the great its the M night Shyamalan planet of the Apes Here’s the plan it’s no secret raise your hand and give the answer I agree with Concentration of Indoctrination now we consider him a genius Don’t let him look into why Malcolm X wanted to separate Keep him chasing his tail in circles as we continue to legislate Tell the only ones that’s special are the ones that did something first Ignore the names of those that change what was broke but now works You know what’ll really knock ‘em out of competition?! Tell ‘em their role models are ball players and musicians Let’s assassinate all they’re leaders and complain they’re all directionless Police Kill off they’re strong men n women even though they are weaponless But keep the freaks in the sheets cuz they women are the sexiest Add dope to their communities break down the family structure So it’s really sister Vs sister and brother Vs brother Father out the home is more pressure for the mother Strong and independent makes her think a pb and j can be jelly without peanut butter So what makes you think I want a calendar with 28 days With 28 names Of 28 slaves Lead to 28 graves? I think …..We’d rather have our 40 acres…
