Tell me you know what it means to be Black....
Tell me the true definition,
not the one created by the masses for the purpose of destruction
in which you have simply embodied.
The idea that your mothers and daughters are purely a machine for sex
that your fathers and sons are destined for mediocrity
poverty is not our norm.
Misconceived notions of what it means to be black has plagued us,
and reveals the complex reason for our imagined downfall.
We are not lost,
but we walk the path with no direction.
Hatred of one another is the manifested hatred of self.

He is you.

have a duty
an obligation to be extraordinary,
as a whole.
As one people.
Come together my musicians, my artist,
my intellectuals, my laborers, everyone.
