The Daily Banter

I am over explaining
I am so over feeling the need to apologize
I am done waiting for your approval
I am no longer in need of your validation
And if you think you can no longer handle
the things I have to say, don’t feel no way
feel free to just walk away
The Jewish do not apologize for reminding you
of their history
The Japanese do not apologize for reminding you
of their history
The Chinese

Why then do BLACK PEOPLE FEEL THE NEED to hide
our pain
Why then do BLACK PEOPLE FEEL THE NEED to tone it down
or be a fucking clown,
Just to make you feel that we are ok
Just so you can feel good about yourself one more day
Well I am so not fucking ok

You to this day
Continue to kill us in any which way
You to this day
Continue to Sheet up as if it is some
kind of fucking Holiday
You to this day
Continue to say where we can
or cannot play
Can or cannot stay
Can or cannot even fucking pray
Even to this day we are still
asking massa God to wash OUR sins away
as we ourselves continue to VICTIM slay

Today is that line
drawn in the blood drenched
sand
Today is that line
drawn on the scarred worm of
my motherland
Today is that line
written in our action plan
I am over your need to always
have the upper hand
Because the very book you
so wanted me to read
have explained to me
the righteous deed
if thy hand offend me
then it shall become the end of
our long standing litigi
