Why Black Girl?
Why do people associate negative characteristics to you?
Us black women?
Like when folks say: she’s an angry black woman
Or that we’re loud or have an attitude?
At no time do the two automatically correlate
Did I mention I said people? ALL people.
Heard it from all of the colors of the human shield’s spectrum
You can be a loud woman
You can be an angry woman
Hell, you want to have an attitude? Have a damn attitude
but that’s you
That’s not black women
Hmmm…wait! That’s not even “women”
Is every black man dangerous? Every Indian? Hispanic? Asian? Nah
…so you see my point?
I really shouldn’t have to say thissss anymoreeeee, but I do
It’s reaching for the heavens
It’s reaching for solar system
It’s reaching for the moon, the sun and the stars
To continue to place us in a box
That can’t be unchecked
On the form that goes nowhere
P.S: My tags are wonderful.
P.S.S: So are you 😉
