The 60's 70's 80's nd the early 90'sa

Sweet Brown Sugar has always been considered a hot commodity and prior to Harlem being gentrified, you would have men from the suburbs that would risk their lives for a pieceThey would tip-toe through Harlem like a thief in the night

Producing High yellow babies that could pass for whiteSo these girls from the suburbs got big butts now…

They like hip-Hop music and Usher, getting on the dance floor and dropping it like it's hot while speaking in Ebonics talking 'bout "I hear that"

That's called evolution

And in one pubic hair a women has enough electricity to jump start New York City It's those silly Negro's sitting on the stoop that thinks that it's their silly words that's gon' get them to second base not realizing that women call the shots...

Now The only reason rappers glorify the “Ghetto" is because it gives it this commercial connotation I'm say'n that there's a profit to be made off of poverty Put a beat to my pain and I'm a slave to the dollar

And quiet as it's kept - the only reason that the emancipation proclamation ever went into effect is because the Founding Fathers knew that Black folks now had a firm grasp on the bible

They knew that we would go from coast to coast to propagate our faith, by building store front churches and showing more compassion for something that happened more than two thousand years ago and show no concerns for the woes that plague The Hood today

If Black people stopped going to church for one week it would shake the foundation of America's economical structure

That's when the Founding Fathers would use all of their resources to start building fences around the suburbs quicker than you could say, 'Good Ship Jesus

But then again that's just a big IF cause cotton came to Harlem a long time ago

And while the Black men are still sitting on the stoop debating about which girl has the fattest ass, every Ghetto in America is being gentrified...

All I'm trying to say is that my neighborhood is a funny place and if you take it easy, you might die laughing...©

I enjoyed reading this...
"I'm say'n that there's a profit to be made off of poverty
Put a beat to my pain and I'm a slave to the dollar" This is today's gangsta and hood raps...

An interesting expression of the ever evolving changes that affect change from within...

I love the way you write! You pull the reader in and leave them gasping in wonder after having read your words--at least you did me.

The line (out of many) "...And in one pubic hair a woman has enough electricity to jump start New York City. ..." makes one sit up and take notice! Brilliant!

I do not want to miss another word: may I track you?

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

This reminds me of Def Poetry Jam - in your face, out there, bold and beautiful!!
