BLACK

BLACK

The strongest word in the dictionary.

- of any human group dark- colored skin 

though they attack our freedom 

though it’s war between us————- like vampires and werewolves

 

MELANIN

The most intimidating word in the dictionary 

- a dark brown to black pigment; responsible for tanning of skin

though you dislike our cultural confidence

though you are quick to culturally appropriate——————— like a mirror and it’s reflection 

 

UNSTOPPABLE

- impossible to stop or prevent 

WE are strong and woke. 

AND in this era we will not try and prove our greatness because 

IT’S engraved in our bones and flows in our blood

 

WE will no longer apologize for being 

 

BLACK

The strongest word in the dictionary.
