Black Lives Matter Protest!

We are black not barbaric
We are dark not dangerous
Its just a skin color not a skin condition

We are black and beautiful
We are dark and dreamy
Our skin is just like pearls

They call us “Negroes”
They call us “Kaffirs”
The call us “Niggers”
They call our kids “Pickaninnies”

Our intellect intimidates them!
Their confidence only comes from suppressing us
Their superiority comes from making us inferior
Killing us makes them feel like they are in control

But enough is enough!
We are taking the stand!
We are taking our power back!
We are black and we matter!

  1. Love the part, β€œOur intellect intimidates them!
    Their confidence only comes from suppressing us
    Their superiority comes from making us inferior
    Killing us makes them feel like they are in control”
