Why Black Gurl

Why Black Girl?
Why do people associate negative characteristics to you?
Us black women?
You know?
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”
It’s reaching
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
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.
