I am black,
but, I am an American,
yet, because of my color, you stab me in the back?
They tell me I speak too proper for a girl of my color,
and that I could be mistaken as white,
I'm sorry that my skin isn't like the president's, who's on the dollar.
I'm a "thug" and a "gangster" when I rap like Macklemore or Eminem,
but he's white, unlike me, and he's so "cool" and "awesome"
because I'm black, I can't rap like them?
I'm a person, not an object,
why does no one see that?
I guess society must be wrecked.
I'm a woman of color, no excuses, please,
I'm proud of my skin, and my heritage within,
so go, be racist like always, so your heart will continue to freeze.
