When I was born, I was black.
When I grew up, I was black.
When I am sick, I am black.
When I go out in the sun, I am black.
When I am cold, I am black.
When I die, I will be black.
When you are born, you are pink
When you grow up, you are white
When you get sick, you are green.
When you are out in the sun,you are red.
When you are cold, you are blue.
When you die, you turn purple.
And you have the nerve to call me colored.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss
"High School Mind" March 2004
Words of expectation have fallen upon my ears enough to have condensation,
an still these words bring no sensation of stimulation,
they've shown me enough compation to last one another generation,
an I have brought nothing but frustration,
and yet they still come with questions of mind,
with hopes of infultration , but why.
Why do they come with tests of evaltation,
get a score an tell me this is my limitation,
they say reach for the sky , but the sky has no limitation,
so why should I,
so why should I be limited by 3rd edition estimation of what I will do,
of what I will become,
thoughts of my mind run high with imagination,
but I have failed to see the principle of progression and reduction of such images has set in
due to dehydreation of education,
an now my compasition has gave in to hypertention an stress diversions in hopes
to regain coordination to make in this life I see as nothing but dwindling corperations,
repetions of knowledge I now practice for that long anticipated second audition,
due to previous malpractice of "Free" education in which previous generations
have fought so hard for,
and now my efforts to reopen that door is met with a set low score.
"Dingy my eyes are to see the many eyes of autority that watch me,
in hopes I will be nothing more than that set low score."
"Just something I was thinkin" 2004
why do they try so hard in wants for me to let down my minds guard,
they want me to become which that has been seen so far,
couphens an bars is what life has been,
an couphens an bars is as life they try to give.
"Who and What is a Negro"
January 16, 1923
The New York World under date of January 15, 1923, published a statement of Drs. Clark Wissler and Franz Boaz (the latter a professor of anthropology at Columbia University), confirming the statement of the French that Moroccan and Algerian troops used in the invasion of Germany were not to be classified as Negroes, because they were not of that race. How the French and these gentlemen arrive at such a conclusion is marvelous to understand, but I feel it is the old time method of depriving the Negro of anything that would tend to make him recognized in any useful occupation or activity.
The custom of these anthropologists is whenever a black man, whether he be Moroccan, Algerian, Senegalese or what not, accomplishes anything of importance, he is no longer a Negro. The question, therefore, suggests itself, "Who and what is a Negro?" The answer is, "A Negro is a person of dark complexion or race, who has not accomplished anything and to whom others are not obligated for any useful service." If the Moroccans and Algerians were not needed by France at this time to augment their occupation of Germany or to save the French nation from extinction, they would have been called Negroes as usual, but now that they have rendered themselves useful to the higher appreciation of France they are no longer members of the Negro race, but can be classified among a higher type as made out by the two professors above mentioned. Whether these professors or France desire to make the Moroccans other than Negroes we are satisfied that their propaganda before has made these people to under stand that their destiny is linked up with all other men of color through out the world, and now that the hundreds of millions of darker peoples are looking toward one common union and destiny through the effort of universal cooperation, we have no fear that the Moroccans and Algerians will take care of the situation in France and Germany peculiar to the interest of Negroes throughout the world.
Let us not be flattered by white anthropologists and statesmen who, from time to time, because of our success here, there or anywhere, try to make out that we are no longer members of the Negro race. If we were Negroes when we were down under the heel of oppression then we will be Negroes when we are up and liberated from such thraldom.
The Moroccans and Algerians have a splendid opportunity of proving the real worth of the Negro in Europe, and who to tell that one day Africa will colonize Europe, even as Europe has been endeavoring to colonize the world for hundreds of years.
NEGROES ROBBED OF THEIR HISTORY
The white world has always tried to rob and discredit us of our history. They tell us that Tut Ankh Amen, a King of Egypt, who reigned about the year 1350 B. C. (before Christ), was not a Negro, that the ancient civilization of Egypt and the Pharaohs was not of our race, but that does not make the truth unreal. Every student of history, of impartial mind, knows that the Negro once ruled the world, when white men were savages and barbarians living in caves; that thousands of Negro professors at that time taught in the universities in Alexandria, then the seat of learning; that ancient Egypt gave to the world civilization and that Greece and Rome have robbed Egypt of her arts and letters, and taken all the credit to themselves. It is not surprising, however, that white men should resort to every means to keep Negroes in ignorance of their history, it would be a great shock to their pride to admit to the world today that 3,000 years ago black men excelled in government and were the founders and teachers of art, science and literature. The power and sway we once held passed away, but now in the twentieth century we are about to see a return of it in the rebuilding of Africa; yes, a new civilization, a new culture, shall spring up from among our people, and the Nile shall once more flow through the land of science, of art, and of literature, wherein will live black men of the highest learning and the highest accomplishments.
Professor George A. Kersnor, head of the Harvard Boston expedition to the Egyptian Soudan, returned to America early in 1923 and, after de scribing the genius of the Ethiopians and their high culture during the period of 750 B. C. to 350 A. D. in middle Africa, he declared the Ethiopians were not African Negroes. He described them as dark colored races ... showing a mixture of black blood. Imagine a dark colored man in middle Africa being anything else but a Negro. Some white men, whether they be professors or what not, certainly have a wide stretch of imagination. The above statements of the professors support my contention at all times that the prejudice against us as Negroes is not because of color, but because of our condition. If black men throughout the world as a race will render themselves so independent and useful as to be sought out by other race groups it will simply mean that all the problems of race will be smashed to pieces and the Negro would be regarded like anybody else a man to be respected and admired.
This still applies to todays Black People
