Black

Beautiful

The inventor of many things

Bold

Foretold

Blessed a thousandfold

The pigmented decendants of kings and queens

Slave, thug, negro

You are none of these

Strong

Powerful

A part of God's destiny

Don't be confused with what you see

on the TV screen and magazines

You're much more than what

they protray you to be.

I encourage you to get a book

pick it up and read because

You are designed to lead

Don't be the victims they make

us out to be

Time after time

We've always strived to make lemonade

from the lemons given to us

We are the original innovators

Creative

Crafty

The most imitated

Constantly emulated

For what we do

What we say

The way we act

The way we play

We are rulers of many nations

Since the dawn of man

Subjects followed the law of the brownest eye

With our "bronze" skin

Hair likened unto lamb's wool

We are NOT mediocre

We are persistent

We are the standard of excellence

We are Kings and Queens!!!
