About Michelle Phillips

​      I write because I want to change the way the world views race.  With each piece, my aim is to eradicate negative stereotypes about African-Americans, while educating people about our culture. 
     Whether it's through contemporary poetry or educational material, I hope that what I share encourages people to embrace all cultures, and accept the differences that make up the diverse world that we live in today. 

Committed to changing the way the world looks at race.

Is Chivalry dead?

Is Chivalry dead?


Asking someone out on a date

Opening up a door for a woman

Holding a door for a woman to enter

Holding hands

Being respectful;

Is chivalry dead?

You want a thug

You want a gangsta

You want a cool man,

When he whoops your butt,

Can we then say you a nut?

You don’t want a soft man,

A man that cries,

You want a man that pimps when he walks,

Put you in your place,

Backhand you in the face.

Wow, now that’s cool.

If a man speaks to you with respect,

Helps pay a bill with his check,

Never call you out of your name,

It’s called being chivalrous,

Is chivalry dead?
