I Am Still a Black Man

Don’t let my education fool you, I am still a black man.

Don’t let my upbringing fool you, I am still a black man.

Don’t let my political leanings to the right fool you, I am still a black man.

Yes, I’m highly educated, I grew up with both my parents that attended college, sent me to private schools and I attained degrees, my political beliefs are not always hardcore democrat but don’t be confused I’m a proud black man.

No, I don’t identify with being woke or beat my African drum down the streets of protests but don’t be confused when you see me, I am unapologetically a black man.

My eyes have not seen the lynching’s that my great grandparents saw, they didn’t see the Jim Crow south like grandparents saw, they didn’t see the marching and then the murder of Martin or Malcolm.


Uh-oh, I mentioned Malcolm, you’re realizing I am still a black man.  Your face is turning a little red now, not appearing to be a white man.  I said something that made you fearful was it that I was still a black man?
