PRESSURE

The PRESSURE is always on you Black Man…Always…

The Heat, the intense heat, somehow, someway, always manages to attach itself to you Black Man…

From Slavery time to Modern times, the PRESSURE has not let up in its diabolical quest to control every aspect of you…

They who have so many names have always been afraid of you, for reasons known only to them, and racist thoughts leading them…

They PRESSURE you because of their fears and insecurities…

They have lynched you, burned your flesh to a crisp, did everything with their wicked powers to contained or if necessary, annihilate you.

They PRESSURE your families into chaos amongst each other…

They PRESSURE your children into not believing in themselves or in you…They PRESSURE and entice your woman with materialistic things that are beyond your means to achieve…

The PRESSURE is always on you Black man…

Until you take a collective stand as a single, strong, determined unit, they will never let up in their quest to re-own you, an dethrone you from the kingdom of your mind…

PRESSURE…

PRESURE…

PRESSURE… Recognize it and Rise from it!
