Lord why did you make me Black?
Why did you make someone the world wants to hold back?
Black is the color of dirty clothes,the color of grimy hands and feet.
Black is the color of darkness, the color of tire-beaten streets.
Why did you give me thick lips, a broad nose and kinky hair?
Why did you make someone who gets the hatred stare?
Black is the color of the bruised eye
when someone gets hurt.
Black is the color of darkness, Black is the color of dirt.
How come my bone structure`s so thick, my hips and cheeks are high?
How come my eyes are brown and not the color of daylight sky?
Why do people think I`m useless? How come I feel so used?
Why do some people see my skin and think I should be abused?
Lord I just don`t understand. What is it about my skin?
Why do some people want to hate me and not know the person within?
Black is what people are "listed" when others want to keep them away.
Black is the color of shadows cast. Black is the end of the day.
Lord you know my own people mistreat me and I know this just aint right.
They dont like my hair. They say Im too dark or too light.
Lord dont you think it`s time for you to make a change?
Why don`t you re-do creation and make everyone else the same?
Why did I make you Black?
Why did I make you Black?
Get off your knees and look around. Tell me what you see?
I didn`t make you in the image of darkness, I made you in the likeness of ME!
I made you the color of coal from which beautiful diamonds are formed. I made you the color of oil, the Black Gold that keeps people warm.
I made you from the rich, dark earth that can grow the food you need.
Your color`s the same as the black stallion, a majestic animal indeed!I did not make you in the darkness I made you in the likeness of ME!
All of the colors of the heavenly rainbow can be found throughout every nation. But when all of those colors were blended, you became my greatest creation.
Your hair is the texture of lamb`s wool. Such a humble little creature is he. I am the Shepherd who watches them. I am the One who will watch over thee.
You are the color of midnight sky. I put the stars` glitter in your eyes.
There is a smile hidden behind your pain. That`s why your cheeks are so high.
You are the color of dark clouds formed, when I send my strongest weather.
I made your lips full so when you kiss the one you love, they will remember.
Your stature is strong, your bone structure is thick to withstand the burdens of time.
The reflection you see in the mirror...The image that looks back is MINE.
HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH AND BE A CONTRIBUTION TO BLACK HISTORY EVERYDAY OF YOUR LIFE!!!!!
