So because I am African American, I am a thief?
Because I am black I have to step back and
let the next person shine?
because my skin is dark and my hair is course
I am lesser than a woman?
because I am black, I am ignorant?
I think not
because I am black
I am unique
Because I am black, I can succeed
I refuse to let my history define me
I refuse to step down and let the next person shine
I refuse to be called ignorant and ghetto because I live in the "hood"
I refuse to live in the stereotype
I refuse to let what people say, hurt me


I am proud, I am strong, I am intelligent,
I am BLACK
