Look at me, what do you see?
What's the first thing that comes to mind?
Is it that I have nappy hair? Or is it that I have big lips?
You're probably thinking I'm loud and obnoxious
I'm probably from the ghetto
Therefore, I'm unintelligent and I'm probably gonna steal from you
But what if I was Hispanic?
I most likely don't have a green card
I only do manual labor
You're probably thinking I'm loca
Let's say I'm Asian
My package is presumably smaller
My eyes are always closed
And it's impossible for me to pronounce my l's
Now I'm Muslim
And all I do is terrorize others and
I probably mistreat my wife
Now we're getting serious
What if I was gay?
You probably think it's a disease
Or that I have AIDS
You think I wanna sleep with you, you, or you
If I was White
I'm the one to blame for everyone's sadness
I'm the person who holds the power
I'm the majority
I'm the one who colonized the world
I'm considered the richest
I'm the perfect race
I'm a woman, a female, a girl
Oh, you think I belong in the kitchen?
I'm not supposed to be the breadwinner
I should just be pretty and be looked at
I'm supposed to be below men?
I birth the man, why can't I be the boss?
Okay, now I'm chunky, fat, thick
I guess you're thinking I eat too much
I can barely run two feet
I probably smell cause I can't reach under the "layers"
I'm probably too lazy to get off the chair
You would date Hitler before you date me
Let's say I'm a man, a boy, a dude
I'm obsessed with sex... Well that may be true
But I'm the strongest
I have to be in charge
I make the rules and the most money
No woman can open a jar unless I'm there to do it
And in this society
We walk around and look at one another
As we judge each other by the color of our skin
By the way we talk
By the way we walk
By the shapes of our eyes
By the texture of our hair
By the size of our nose
Telling us this is the way things goes
It's sad that we live in a world like this
Cause in the end we're all trying to be happy
In the end we're all looking for ourselves
We're not looking for someone else to label us
In the end, we're all just humans
But in the end, we've forgotten what it means to be human
