I’ll keep it short:
This song isn’t sad, but this Black History Month was.
We’re barely past two months into the year and already Black people have been disrespected, disregarded and just all around laughed at. It’s not much of a switch up from the rest of the year, but at least give us the month of February to recover from the world’s constant abuse. If you’re non-Black and consider yourself an ally, defend us, speak up for us, fight for us. Check in on your Black friends during these times and ask us how we’re doing. Buy from Black businesses. Give the Black community our credit for our influence on American culture.
So I feature this song (even if it isn’t real, even if it is satire) because despite the atrocities we have to go through as a people, I’m still proud to come from a lineage of strength and perseverance.
CAUSE I’M BLACK, Y’ALL!
