its best to hit your ” not like OTHER black people” phase young

gon head and get it out of your system. 

you dont want to be a grown ass person talking about how other black people dont like you because you speak “proper”

this is true. Glad I stopped the respectability politics and the uppity attitude during college. 

"

I see them move,
The black men there,
With shells for shoes
And sea for air.

They’re bound in lines.
Their dragging chains
Once held anchors—
Now like trains.

Their crops are mire.
With broken knees
They plow the floors
Of restless seas.

Horrible is it,
What’s to be—
Black human miles
Inside the sea.

With mighty toil
Their burst hands drop.
They move on past
The shattered ships.

It’s west they move,
And north to land,
They never sit,
They barely stand!

Their teeth strain on,
They have not stopped.
They knew the goal
‘Fore they were dropped.

O northwest lands,
See what’s in store,
As deathless men
Stride up your shore!
