Black paint highlights colours
Black cars are craved everywhere
The colour black portrays success and power
Everything black is beautiful
The shade of our skin is our biggest crime
We are made to apologize for it
For our skin,we are persecuted and beaten
For our skin,we are suspected of every crime
Why can't they see our pain and strife ?
How different is the black man from the white man?
They adopt our culture,
They braid their hair,they sing our songs,they dance our dances
Yet they kill us.
Because of this shade of skin to them, we are no better than animals
No matter how loud we shout and protest they refuse to hear us
Why won't they have mercy?
Why won't they open their eyes to see
Eggs have white or brown shells
But when they are cracked,the yolk is always the same
We all bleed the same red blood
For how long will we be disgraced because of our skin
For how long will there be the phrase "too black"
For how long will we fall under the mercy of this injustice
Today we cry out
Today we make our voices known
Today we show them what blacks stand for
Today we show them the angry flame burning inside of us
Today we use our powerful voices to shout for our freedom and liberation
Today we peacefully protest
Today we let them know if they don't see our blackness then they don't see us
Today we say...
