We The Blacks

You hate me and my kind because of the color of our skin
You think it's okay to mistreat and use us because we're black
Little do you know without us you're nothing
We "The Blacks" Have brought so much here
Even as slaves we provided when we literally had nothing
Fed you're kids, Did your laundry your house work
And yet you're still ungrateful
So while you continue to hate on us Queens and Kings because of who we are
We'll just continue to grow and maintain this wonderful power
Not to build in hope of tearing you down
But to show the world through it all us "The Blacks" Never gave up
