BLACK WOMEN! -A TRIBUTE TO YOU FROM A GREAT BLACK MAN-MENELIK CHARLES!

The Crucifixion of Black female hair…

BY MENELIK CHARLES

The ‘ghetto’s a get go!
An Afro’s a no-no!
& locs just shut
Up the shop

Why is my hair such
A horror show?

This is a story I’d
Like to know

My skin was subject of sin
My lips the subject of quips
My rear the subject of sneers
Now my hair’s treated as queer

This is no longer cynical

The subject’s almost Biblical

You may not believe us but
My hair’s like Jesus

And you are the Romans
Doing the stoning

But you’ll soon be
Running when my
Hair makes a
2nd Coming

(c) Menelik Charles
