The Only Body I Have video
It’s not even about racism anymore.
No black child, it’s about self-hate.
It isn’t about the oppression or apartheid.
No black child, you were brainwashed way before freedom was ever sold as an idea to you.
It isn’t about the education you received from the history book about a fair skinned man. No black child, no one wrote about your inventions.
Who’s gonna tell your stories when the rich pigments have been manufactured to non existence?
When the texture of your hair is a myth told in comedies.
Who’s gonna teach your kids to love and embrace and be proud of their heritage? When you do not wanna carry the genetics in your blood anymore.
Why is it cool to you to NOT be “black”? Why is it cool to NOT be loud anymore and sing like our mothers used to?
Why are you so afraid to be different?
Why are you so ashamed to be black?
You’ve come so far and your existence is still so potent but you are so set of going extinct.
What is it that you hate about yourself so much?
Can’t you see they’re using you against yourself.
You are fighting with the mirror because you believe that’s your enemy.
Our forefathers did not fight so we could forget them.
So that we could bury ourselves with them. Why are you so afraid to make noise and be black…proudly?
They push you…..push back, you have the same strength, don’t let them convince you you’re nothing without them.
Do not shatter the mirror, shatter the thoughts of inadequacy.
You matter – you are part of the human race.
You are human, do not allow them to treat you any less.
Do not accept extinction.
