What the hell is acting, talking or dressing "black"?
Why does everything I do as a Black man have to fit into what AmeriKKKa has defined as being "BLACK"?
Why the fuck can't I just be a Black man in AmeriKKKa, without having the label of being a BLACK man in AmeriKKKa?
Just because I like to wear classic rock band t-shirts, Chuck Taylor sneakers, well worn, (or new, but looks well worn) jeans that fit, (I have no desire to look like an ex-con), I am not Black enough?
Just because I can talk without using Ebonics whenever I feel the need to, I am not "hood" enough?
Because I choose to listen to rock music I am a sellout?
Because I choose not to eat fried foods with sweet ass sweet sweet ass Iced Tea at every meal I am "uppity"?
Because I do not frequent the neighborhood Mega Church and I do not treat the Preacher of said mega church like he was with Moses when he parted the Red Sea, I am going to hell?
Because I refuse to blame White People for everything that is fucked up with Black People, I know that Black People are 75% of the blame for everything that is fucked up with Black People, I am not Black enough?
Because I think that Black People are stupid for swinging from the nut sack of every Democrat that only comes around every election cycle, be they Black or White, and NEVER does anything but give sound-bites on how they will "change" shit, I will have to learn the hard way?
I can go on and on about how just because I choose to think and I refuse to follow anybodies lead but mine, because I question shit that most of my Black brothers and sisters have come to accept as the very word of God and because I am not ashamed to be me instead of what AmeriKKKa has told the world I am, I am considered as "different" from the rest.
I cannot stand it.
It is like I am expected to be the definition of everything negative that is in the world. I am expected to be everything except what I am.... A free thinking MAN.
Sometimes I think that being born Black in a country that can only see shit in Black and White, can be both a gift and a damn curse.
More curse than gift though.
