Is it Black History Month?by K on 02/01/16
Is it Black History month?
A celebration of culture,
A celebration of history.
Keepin’ our eyes on the prize,
at times, being wise,
often times, continuing in & believing the same ole lies.
Let’s celebrate the short month that we have;
we are still alive, passionate, thriving, and damn! We bad!
(NOT IN A BAD WAY),
as we continue to strive.
Many have gone on,
transitioned home from various reasons,
RACISM, MISPLACED RAGE, and from SELF-HATRED too.
We continue the struggle, Mexicans as well,
their ancestors slaving in the fields, working hard for a menial wage.
Julio Cesar Chavez fighting for justice, fair wages,
for his people to be treated just as fairly.
Cinco de Mayo is just a day of battle, not their true Independence Day,
It’s September 16th by the way.
What a hard working people, their struggles just as real;
Mexicans have some of the same struggles as Black folk,
they continue to fight for equality, while knowin’ that the struggle is REAL.
I didn’t write the history, so please don’t get mad when I remember…
Is Black History Month, A TRUE CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION?
