Why is it that people have such high hopes for our race but than use us as target practice Why is it that they expect us to learn about our past the conversion of our belief to baptist
Why is it that we are still victims of slavery if we have not violated or denied the context of our democracy If you hate us for the color of our skin and the content of our character Why cant we hate you for yours
Why can the term negro flow from your mouth like water from a fountain. But we would not shout a slur of your race from the highest mountain Why must we have to mourn and grieve with our brothers and sisters While you are celebrating the life you took with yours
Why can you hate someone enough to take their life But than feel sympathetic once its gone. Why does it take a mother on the floor crying and screaming for her child back. To understand the seriousness of one bullet Let alone two, three, or forty-one.
If we beg for mercy and you deny We will deny the forgiveness you think you deserve
Why does I Have A Dream have to be our first bountiful words But i cant breathe the last
