The trials of my race The plagues we've faced The souls we've lost The lives they've cost
We were outcasts Because we were different But now we're praised Because of our difference
We walk among them And they want to be us They covet our skin Because we deviate from the norm
We are black and beautiful We stand proud and tall Being black is all
Some of them still loathe us And we take the fall But we're human beings Just like y'all
We are black And we are proud Melanin dripping Swag popping And nothing and no one will stop us from conquering the world.
