White isn’t Good & Black isn’t Bad

Oh I found out a beautiful secret today.
How beautiful it was.
Sweet and dangerous it was.
Wait. It is.
We are in the present.
But first,  first we go back.

It begins with origins.
The blacker the berry.
The sweeter the juice.
Sweet and dangerous.

Great and powerful.
Brilliant and intelligent.
The blacker the berry.
The sweeter the juice.
Sweet and dangerous.

Melanin is nature.
Melanin is natural.
Melanin is protective
Melanin is.

The blacker the berry.
The sweeter the juice.
Black isn’t bad.
White isn’t good.
Human-ity.

We have been made to forget
The blacker the berry.
The sweeter the juice.

Civilizations great.
Civilizations small.
The blacker the berry.
The sweeter the juice.
Sweet and dangerous.

The truth shall set you free.
Which truth?  And set who free?
The blacker the berry.
The sweeter the juice.
Sweet and dangerous.

It began with “Africa”.
It shall end with “Africa”
The blacker the berry.
The sweeter the juice.
