When Black people passed in the United States, it was to survive.
To try their luck at getting to be “alive”.
So, explain then, the psychoses
that drive you to commit suicide.
What’s so attractive about being “dead” like we are?
About dwelling on “the other side”?
Why are you grave-robbing?
Undertaking, digging deeper into lies?
After how horrible (you know) you've made being Black,
(A veritable war-zone of ever-impending fatal attacks)
What's the attraction of touring the land behind God's back?
Plagiarizing our biographies,
Blackface & Black-phishing in a rage
Stealing everything, EVERYTHING--!!!
Even the flowers that we managed to put on our own graves:
Forget cultural appropriation!
This is the next stage!
While amid this intermission,
Let me just say:
How y’all gonna tear us down for our ways,
then turn around, and try to be us?
What more could you possibly want?
Why isn’t being white enough?!
