BEING A BLACK GIRL
By: Kween Yakini
Please don’t tell her that she’s too pretty to be a Black Girl
Don’t let her think that life would be better
if she wasn’t so Black
Now I even hear some Africans bleach their skin
because they think Dark skin is wack
Can you imagine that?
I just don’t understand why some Black Girls
don’t love being Black
And why some would rather lighten their complexion
cause they want to be anything other than dark black
It’s sad that they should ever learn to think like that
and sometimes I just want to give them a little smack
How did so many of us get so off track?
I think most of you know the answer to that
But now it’s time for us to praise our young girls
Time to help them get their confidence back
Cause all Black Girls are Lit and that is a #Fact!
