Being Black In America


Is it enough
To being Black in America
To being in America?
First fired
Last hired
First to die
First to be jailed
last for opportunites
And sometimes
None at all!
Is it enough
To die for America?
If we die then who will
Stand up for us
Or take our place?
It is enough
To being Black in America
To be Black in America?
HELL NO! ! ! !
