I Am Not The Typical Black Girl

Location

They say that I am not the typical black girl because,

well only because I "talk white".

see let me cut to the chase

about the crazy things that humans say

first in foremost it is actually speak

second in place

since when has race

become the system to comunicate?

But then again, it all depends

speaking the language described as "white"

just may not always sound right

but even the standard seems foolish to the British.

Well, that doesn't matter,

because the real reason that I am typing 

is to

keep the stereotypes from

doing a cycle

it is a shame because its all psycho.

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
