My Skin is a Weapon

Even with awareness and black unity, there will always be hate towards our kind because of the complexion of my skin
My melanin
Don't hate on how the sun brings out my best feature
Black don't crack is that why you gave us crack
Complex relations
But Not because of how I act
But how I look
My stereotypical behaviors can be seen as Russian Roulette though
Same race crime is prevalent  along with you because I look like a thug or I'm causing problems 
I don't care what no one says
Even with sharing and spreading positively 
Their are those hater smashing their bleach
Tainting us with saying and weapons to degrade and demolish us
That's why alot of us only care for our own
Which is great
Because no one else does.
It doesn't matter if your a banger or a famer
Regardless the only love wed get from will be from our own
But I'm ok with that
BECAUSE black is power
Black is Love 
Black is unity
