Yes I am black but I am much more than that.
I am smart and cunning , and no I have never been beaten or whipped.
But my mind is sharped and well equiped to become something more.

I am tired of people looking at me with a joke about slavery when the joke used to be a yoke around my families neck.

White faces try to explain the reason there plantations are not to be blamed for the pain and shame that has plagued my families name.

Well forget them they dont matter and no matter what the excuse I will rise above.. I will overcome.

I will blaze trails and change history for the better and rewrite what it is to be Black.

I will forgive and forget and leave white faces with regret.

You can bet that my spirit is not broken my yoke is light and I know longer cower in the dead of night.

I am black and proud and will say it aloud so that the whole world can hear it and know that I mean it when I say that I am proud to be black!!!!!
