Born a crime ; Black and alive.

West Chester, PA.

Why do you hate me?
Why is my existence considered a pestilence in your eyes?
Why do you kill me?
Why do you murder my sons and tarnish my reputation?
Why do you rape my wives and daughters?
Why do you take from me and call it emancipation?
“You hate me don’t you?
You hate my people, your plan is to terminate my culture.”
You love to see me down,
you pick me up only to toss me to the ground.
Why you over-work my mommy?
Why you take my daddy from me?
