We are so much more than what you see in the videos on TV

We are so much more than the rocks on our chain

Or the chronic smoke that clouds our brain

We are so much more than the sagging of our pants

Or the wiggle and jiggle when we do the booty dance

We are so much more than hoes and pimps

Or over extended our selves eating lobster and shrimps

We are so much more than lying around getting welfare

Or having bad credit because we simply don’t care

We are so much more than the popping of a nine

Or starting everything late because we can’t get there on time

We are so much more than making so many babies

Or not doing business with our own because we think they are shady

We are so much more than being in jail

Or not being able to go to Harvard or Yale

We are so much more than not going to school

Or getting the latest designer clothes because it makes us look cool

We are so much more than disrespecting our women, putting down our men

And hating what is black like the rest of them

We are so much more than the rolling of our necks and eyes

Or wearing skirts that don’t pass our thighs

We are so much more than brothers on the down low

Or men living off a woman because he has nowhere to go

We are so much more than selling drugs

Or gangbanging hanging on the corner being thugs

We are so much more than having A.D.H.D.

Or diabetes, high blood pressure or H.I.V

We are so much more than being materialistic

Or limiting ourselves because they say our goals are unrealistic

We are so much more than loud a scary

Or blacks putting other blacks in the cemetery

We are so much more the scheming and lying

Or saying we cannot do something without even trying

 We are so much more than chicken and watermelon

Or not being able to communicate always screaming and yelling

Now I have explained to you what we are more than let me tell you what we are

We are heavenly bodies associated with the moon and stars

We are Pyramids and hieroglyphs

Astrology we are god’s gifts

We are innovative and creative
when it comes to being original we are the natives

We are the spiritual ones we are the trend setters

We are the motivators and the go getters

Black people are real to the core,

The greatest thing God created and so much more.
