Fighting Black

The Early Works

Why are all these black women hatin?
I see their eyes pop out like gangsters
Every time I say the words
Inter-racial dating
I’m all for multi-culture and equality
Yet you act like my blackness should be an automated monopoly
The thing is…
I’m a man and I’ll never white girl for being fine
I wont mind if she makes a beeline for a piece of my peace of mind
Yes we’ll wine and dine you may fear we’ll settle down
Maybe you’ll learn not to throw your weight around
Crush a brother like society
Unite and contrive to keep a brother down
It’s so…unfounded that we always want it…easy
Killing theory as I strive to please thee
I want a woman who doesn’t think she’s too good to please me
And really…
It aint just you should have it all
A man who’s Morris chestnut, usher
Who can deck you out better than Harrods entrance hall at Christmas

I hope your listening
I’m black and successful
Does it make me accessible?
You want a piece of me now I run tings like a general
I’m available to you now because my pie looks edible
Maybe I’ll get with you for…
Apples but naturally no peaches
Nice personality
Maybe next Sunday our date will be …
With a preacher
Ok well see you
I thought I had commercial qualities
I know for breakfast I wont be getting ackee and saltfish
Callaloo and dumpling on a Sunday morning
For dinner if you cook…the chicken wont even have salt in
I don’t wanna be a patois translator
A lyrical motivator who got cleaned out by a woman who wanted to get laid
But couldn’t get paid even if her name was cash generator
I would hate that
It would be like disaster struck again
That’s why I cry in earnest black women
Don’t overlook too many black men
