What's the pont of trying to be someone who does not receive respects?

Boys and GIrls disrespect eachother everyday

But not I

I demand RESPECT

I was raised to give and receive respect

My mama didn't teach me to disrespect or accept it!

"Young black women take your stand and hold your head high

If you dont respct yourself I won't"

is what I hear my elders say.

I deserve respect. I demaand respect.

I will be great and you wil respect me.
