We Are One!

Racial Pride doesn't have to mate with prejudice...

I don't care what Island you come from, We Are One...

I don't care how different your accent sounds, We are One...

Cultural differences doesn't bury the facts that the world started out black and migrated to every part of the globe...

We Are One!

Rooted in Mother Africa, scattered and battered, left on the shores of Santa Domingo, Cuba, and Every Island where profit could be made and people could be enslaved...

We are One!

Tortured and abused and conditioned to remain confused, tricked and duped into believing that cultural differences represented racial differences...

I don't care if you operate out of the blind side of your mind when it comes to seeing the beauty and worth of your own kind...We Are One!

I don't care if you lie to yourself, your children and friends that you don't have any Black kin…

I don't care if the mirrors of your own eyes continues to lie about your alleged difference from those who you considered as "Them"...We Are One In God's Eyes...

Continue if you must to deny, lie and hide about your heritage, about your race, because when truth is told whole you will clearly see that We Are One!
