Just because I’m black
Doesn’t mean I’m dumb
Doesn’t mean I don’t like Caucasian
And doesn’t mean we’re all baldheaded


Just because I’m black
Doesn’t mean I’m ghetto
Doesn’t mean I wear weave
And doesn’t mean I’m crazy


Just because I’m black
Doesn’t mean I live in the hood
Doesn’t mean we all want to play a sport
And doesn’t mean I only eat chicken

Just because I’m black
Do we have to be defined by color?
I’m none of that
What is being black?
