Why do we still hate ourselves?
Black is Beautiful
Say it loud, I'm black and I'm proud
Why do our children still yell
Like it's a badge of honor
And brown skin is a mark of shame?
Why is "Team Light Skin" an exclusive club that's "in"
Why do we still grade our hair
Check our babies' ears
How dark we are
Avoid the sun
While others spray, bake and burn?
Why can't we see our beauty
Love and embrace our diversity?
Why do we hate ourselves?
And play ourselves
With ignorance and meanness?
And love your fellow man
Whether vanilla white or dark chocolate brown
Each flower in the garden has its own beauty
Made by God for his glory.
Teach your children.
