I’m not a coon or a savage
And I don’t live in the projects or eat chicken and watermelons for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
No, I don’t live on the “block” and sell dope.
I plan to earn my degree to start a career.
I have kinky hair, not “nappy” hair; I speak very fluent English,
Not Ebonics; and I pronounce it “South” not “Souf”
I cannot proudly sew my countries flag on my backpack; I believe in
Justice, not corruption, especially for the people of color; and that
Amerikkka is very lucky African Americans do not seek revenge, only EQUALITY.
There are about 76 million African American men and women in the United States
And I am one of them
My name is Akenee, and I love my culture.
