I took a look, in a little "BlackBook", and what did I see?
That we're a bunch of "BlackSheep" in the dictionary.
"Blackballed" into believing, that evil is dark.
Miseducating our children, leaving mental "Blackmarks."

On this "Black Friday", I really have to say.
This book should be on the "Black Market", revised today.
To "Blacken" a people, with such negative words.
"Blacking" out our minds.  Do you like a "Blackbird?"

Look, in the "Blackbook" at how they describe your race.
Anything "Blackened" is attributed to your "Black" face.
Educationally "Blacklisted", dispensing "Black Bile."
Hearing bad, "Black" words so long, some accept it in style.

Other people's descriptions, giving us  a  "Blackeye."
They say a "Black Panther" is a militant guy.
"Black Art" is witchcraft, "Blackleg" is a disease.
A "Black Fellow" is a "Black Aborigine" overseas.

Do you live in the "Blackbelt", down in the southeast?
Or have you seen "Black Disease?" Its fatal in beasts.
Want another type of "Blackeye?" While beaten "Black & Blue."
The most sinuous dance in the roaring 20's, was "Black Bottom", its true.

If you go to "Black Mass", that's blasphemy.
"Blackheart" is a disease, bringing "Black death" to a tree.
Are we still under "Blackcode" limiting your rights?
Have you heard about "BlackHand?" A criminal group out of sight.

"Black measles" killed a lot of people in the past.
A "Black-A-Moor" is a discoloration, that lasts & lasts.
A "Black Pope" is so offensive to the religious clan.
A "Black Muslim", advocates, separation of man.		

I feel like I'm a victim of verbal "Blackmail."
Is there a "Black word" in Websters, for all the "Black People" in jail?
The "Blackbook" said a "Blackguard" is contemptibly low.
It also stated "Blackface" is to imitate a negroe.

I'm working my "Blackmagic" so our minds can be free.
Wait! I've found something good. "Black gold", Texas Tea.
Are people  equated to day, and to the night?
M.J. Does it really matter, if you're "Black or White?"

These are the words, that we are taught to know.
Read deep, in between the lines, and your mind will grow.
On a sunny day, while you're having that picnic in the park.
Remember, the light that's shining, must also come to the dark.		

At the next march at the "BlackHouse", and you want to say it loud.	
Are you sure you want to be shouting, "I'm Black and I'm Proud?		
We're varying shades of people, of African Descent.
Thanks for the "BLACKBOOK", Mr. Webster. Change it. Hint, Hint, Hint.
