an ode to the young black male

What do you mean you donít trust him?


Heís just starting out.


Just when did all this doubt and suspicion


Dare to come about?


 


Donít start projecting onto him


What his daddy did,


Give him a chance to grow and learn,


Besides, heís just a kid.


 


Yeah, heís a black male,


And Iím aware of the statistics,


But if we show him the way to go


Heís wonít have those characteristics.


 


Making assumptions this early in his life


Canít be that good for him.


Donít toss him out like yesterdayís news


Or reject him on a whim.


 


He has potential like anyone else


To make a difference in this world


So if you keep talking that negative talk


Iím sho-nuff gonna hurl.


 


So cut him some slack, get off his back


And let him do his thing.


Hey look, you just might need him later


When heís running everything.
