There is a great divide among Blacks
It is known as, "Team Lightskin" and "Team Darkskin"
So what is this, you may ask?
But most of all, it's degradation
African-Americans have fought long and hard to be equal
But we can't even have equality amongst ourselves!
Years and years of trying to bring us up
Only to surmount to hashtags that break us down
But we call ourselves, "brothas" and "sistas"?
This race war needs to change
Better yet, it needs to stop
Stop placing standars of beauty into concentrations of melanin
Stop saying, "You're pretty for a darkskin girl"
Stop making us hate ourselves
Light skin is not the only "right skin"
The right skin is what God gave us
So let's come together
And let's do better.
