black-girls

Everyone wants to be black,
But no one wants to be black.
They wanna act like us,
talk like us,
walk like us,
and vibe like us.

And it’s funny because,
the same people who wanna be like us,
dress like us,
look like us,
and act like us,
are the ones who make us feel
like we’re not worthy of being treated like
a civilized human.
