Who Are You? #Flawless

Location

Who are you to tell me that I cannot enunciate and emphasize

Who are you to say I am not eligible to finesse with such gracefullness, to  which you envy

Who are you to brand me as arrogant , because I am proud to be educated

But Who am I to lower myself to an inferior level making me seem just as ignorant

Who am I to subject myself to let judgment cloud my mind

I will tell you who I am 

I am a flawless,educated, strong-minded sixteen year old African-american girl

I am labeled as self-indulged,cocky, and "white"

But I only act in response to how I was raised to understand

So if my vocabulary insults you I apoligize

Who are you, I ask again,To tell me,who am I
