Black Woman, Black Man

What it’s like being black in America

Black woman

Black man

The looks of a curse you could never understand

Black Woman

Black man

I will never be free to be me within this land

Black woman

Black man

I have many fears that can’t be counted on both hands

Black Woman

Black man

I am tired of feeling afraid and angry that NO ONE comes to my aid

Black Woman

Black man

The tears I cry each time my own is murdered with batons and buried with lies

Black woman

Black man

We are in desperate need of help

Black Woman

Black man

Is this the pain that my ancestors felt?

Black Woman

Black man

What did we ever do wrong?

Black woman

Black man

We have been oppressed for far too long.

Black Woman

Black man

I can’t breathe…please someone lend me a helping hand.

Black Woman

Black Man

Why did you ever take us from our Mother Land?
