Melanin Queens

I, a nonconformist with melanin, that's a death wish! Well give me liberty or give me death push me out the nest and wish me the best! Discrimination shall no longer slow us down,  I hereby present my queens with a crown, one of intelligence embroidered with confidence! Shining with happiness and no one controlling it. Pay heed to the army of self-sufficient poised melanin queens that's emerging, we're claiming our treasures and there's no deterring. No one will stop us we're taking the crabs out the bucket and building a ladder, how many will stand against us? Not like it matters. The Melanin Queens are here! Discriminators, HA! I see your fear.
