I get that I am your friend

But I don't know if I'm just your nigga.

I don't know what and who I am to you.

There isn't much friendship 

When Black has been beaten blue.


Do you really see me?

Do you hear my voice?

You see the world one way,

But I don't have that choice.


I don't want you to not see color.

I need you to acknowledge who I am.

Say it loud, and I mean, every single word:

I am Black.

I am Black no matter if it's easy or akward.


Did you see my black skin

When you made all the jokes

Or during all those good times you remember?

If you only see me when it's convenient

Am I your friend or am I your nigga?

    wonderful. It is your talent that matters not the colour of your skin.
