Just Because I’m Black,
Doesn’t mean I’m loud,
Doesn’t mean I’m poor,
And doesn’t mean I’m ghetto.

Just Because I’m Black,
Doesn’t mean I’m rude,
Doesn’t mean I’m not nice,
And doesn’t mean I’m in and out of jail.

Just Because I’m Black,
Doesn’t mean I’m uneducated,
Doesn’t mean I’m unsanitary,
And doesn’t mean I have a Bridge Card.

Just Because I’m Black,
Why does my skin color matter?
Why are we stereotyped?
We are created equal and we are all human right?
