This poem talks about the things people find ugly about the females in my race but those same things being copied by those very people who classify those charteristics as ugly.

What is ugly? Ugly is, My dark melanated skin, My curly kinky hair, My curvy figured body, My wide nose, My full lips My illiterate speech, My questionable fashion, My culture, So what is ugly, Ugly is black. Well so they say. You see the same person calling black ugly is the same person copying everything on my body, And trying to get inside my mind to use my thoughts as their own. My black is inferior, My black is outstanding, My black is a nation, My black is beautiful. So what is ugly if they want that very thing that makes me so ugly.
