Blacks Are Not

Blacks are not inferior to nobody

Whites are not superior to nobody

Asians are not inferior to nobody

Black people have an immense versatility

Blacks are from jet charcoal to alabaster ivory

Black color is full of diversity, like a university

Nobody is lazy

Nobody is crazy

But some are lazy

But some are crazy

There is no Goddarn controversy here

Blacks want equal opportunity

To succeed like everyone here

This is not a travesty

This is not a tragedy

This is not a comedy

Asians are not superior to nobody

Whites are not inferior to nobody

Blacks are not superior to nobody

This stupid thing about race makes no sense

We need to eliminate or eradicate ignorance

We need to use our intelligence

And practice humility and tolerance

A lot of sadness and massacres exist in history

A lot of cruelties and crimes exist in history

Let's practice love and unity

We can now write better stories

We can use the past and memories

To build a better future

For God’s sake and for Mother Nature.
