My AFRICAN Child
What is it about the words AFRICAN, BLACKEST AFRICA that so needless puts fear in the hearts and minds of the insecure
What is that shame that makes your needing to soften the sharpened edges of all things AFRICAN that we must suffix, prefix and or index
INDO AFRICAN, AFRICAN AMERICAN, PAN AFRICANISM, AFRO AMERICAN, AFRICAN CANADIAN, never dare allowing AFRICAN to stand without supervision
Worst~! What is it that makes you feel, Mr. Ms. Mrs. AFRICAN so very harsh the word upon your lips you so very often denounce your prefix in exchange for CAPITALIZATION of your imposed suffix, “Oh No~ I am American born of AFRICAN DECENT but not like the REAL AFRICANS.
How do you know me? Well I am lighter in skin, thinner in lips, flatter in my behind, a nose not like those other kinds and so much smoother with my words not a sign of an accent can you define
I am not like one of those AFRICANS, not like those sooooooo much DARKER to look at, lips that you could build a story upon and an accent that denotes no notes that I can recognized as American, Canadian, European or Caribbean.
I am the more easily recognized washout, symbolic flag without an emblem to call my own, no Clan to cling to, just a type “O” of the population easily fitting into
What is it about being AFRICAN that so needless puts fear in the hearts and or minds of our very own kind
My fellow BLACKEST OF AFRICANS; What is it that makes us so very insecure each and every day we walk out that door
From whom is it you are seeking that need to be loved and adored
What is it you think you have to needless be always apologizing for~!~~
