I'm scared to go into that store with my best friend.
I don't like when they follow me around the store
Pretending to look at something then casually glancing at me
I know I have a purse.
I promise I didn't steal anything.
I promise that black man isn't aggressive as you think.
We promise we won't hurt you so don't say we did.
I promise my hair does not always break a comb when I comb it.
I promise that I am educated and do not only talk in slang.
I promise I am the same as you under this skin tone I wear
So promise to treat me the same and I will too.
