"Essence of time will analyze truth."

I don’t believe because I’m black, opportunities
Decline right off the back, chances are given and
We put priorities to the side, now turns into
Later, a simple question turns into a list of favors,
I’m just a friend not your waiter, the typical black man asks what he already knows, plays you until
you finally fold, and claims racism as soon as the white man says no

The author's comments:
A lot of African Americans use race as a primary reason to why they can't do "this," or "that," when in reality its more about believing in yourself and not using others just to get what you need.
