Mr. President

-Incomplete. Sample Purposes Only.-


Black residents in the White House – thank you, Mr. President -- but that succession doesn’t eliminate the presence of a present problem of the past and future. We’re still faced with oppression, beaten and battered to depression, maybe not physically but emotionally and mentally.


Black heroes are fictional characters, televised to keep us hypnotized; our eyes are mesmerized by the lie of their lives. We don’t talk about our low self esteem but it is taken advantage of – used to lead us to believe the dream we need that diamond-bling, we’re above the rim if we have 24-inch rims with the blinding gleam. So few of us care about how we’re seen or state of being, yet are the first to complain when being racial profiled – well take a look at the profile!

But It Gets Better

Live long enough

and you understand the cycles

yes, here the hit is hardest

when the economy frowns.

This economy weeps

and the people on the sidewalk

watching the 24k rims roll

wonder when will it get better

history sleeps, now it's

the same o same o.
