I want people to see me beyond what i am.
To stop saying i am too African when i am already black enough for them to see.
Yes i am black and i love it.
I love it even when they don't agree.
I have the accent when i speak.
But fine i can still speak English in my sleep.
I dress weird and act smart.
But my shoes are from Macy's, seriously they're not cheap.
I eat mysterious foods that they haven't seen before.
But they make funny faces and want to have a bite.
I hear them talk behind my back and i ignore.
But not anymore.
They can call me anything but a whore.
For i am African, black, beautiful, strong and many more.
