    Why with such a fabulous powerful, beautiful if we have to say Coloured Woman. Born in 1928 and now deceased. Why on Gods earth is there so much racism, particularly in America. Even with President Obama and so many famous coloured musicians who we groove to each and every day.
    Racism will never change until law and government do something about it. Maya's words will certainly live on.
    Racism, there is no room for it in society. We are one! ! ! !

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my ...

You are in love with Tommy,
Because his last name is Hilfiger,
But behind closed doors, Tommy,
Is calling you a nigger,

But you could care less,
Because you have been taught to dress to impress,
If I ask you about your true history,
You would have to look on the back of your jeans and Guess,
