with companies that consistently act as if blacks don't exist until the firms realize there is a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow?
I am the emergence of 250 years of slavery
built my fine body
Conniving and contriving to save my neck
made me highly intelligent
Clinging to and bragging about my beauty
gave me arrogance.
I am strong
I am erudite and
I am vain
A member of the "Talenth Tenth"
And I only answer to Mister.
For I AM THE REINCARNATION OF BLACK BOY!
