Am I less of a sister because I'm light?
You think because I blend in a little better
everything for me is alright?
I might not look like you
not dark enough to be black
or hood enough as a matter of fact
but "they" know I'm not one of them
So where do I stand?
You might be hated by the white man
but I'm hated by you
the one who shares my pain
I thought the field and house negro
was all in the past
After just celebrating MLK day
we are still far from free at last
Just remember, I am no less of a sista
just because I am bright
I am fighting the same struggle,
fighting the same fight
the only difference is
my skin happens to be light
But, I am STILL a SISTA!
