You think we don't know but we do

Updated: Jan 9, 2021

I had a hard time writing this. Really hard time. A moment of deep truth.


Are you "you"? Are you "we"?



You think we don’t know but we do


You think we don’t know that you are conditioned to believe you’re superior to black people


We know. It’s in your DNA


You think we don’t know that you are fearful of unleashed, unsuppressed, free Black people


We know. It’s in your DNA


You think we don’t know that Black people are the root of your existence in America


Without us you wouldn't have and won't survive


We know. It’s in your DNA


We are you


We are your money which is everything to you


We made you wealthy


We are the foundation of your riches


You purchased us just as you purchased your land and used us as equity


We surveyed your land


We plowed your fields


We planted your crops


We picked your cotton


We prepared your food


We nourished your souls


We fed your children


We sexually satiated your spouses


We bore your children


You don’t think we know but we do


You don’t think we know that you need us to entertain you


We do. It’s in your DNA


You don’t think we know that we provide the barometer for what is culturally popular.


You don’t think we know that we make you feel comfortable


Everything we do has been designed to make you feel comfortable


You designed it that way and we know that


We built your houses


We made your furniture
