Latest track tackling the serious issues of complexion dark-skinned women face

lyrics

Dark girls, the center of the world
Wish you knew how precious you are, a black pearl
Insults they hurl, your heart in whirl
Hatin’ on your hair straightened or curled
Hatin’ on your skin while they wear tannin lotion
Hard to see you pretty face on television
Your own people hatin’ cause they don’t understand
You get more appreciation in foreign lands
My eyes pourin’ man, want you to overstand
You perfect as you are sister don’t give a damn
About the people who think that your lips too big
Rock that natural you don’t need no wig
Your hips birthed nations yet you face discrimination
People dissin’ you just don’t have the motivation
To get their lives together so they’re pickin’ on you
Don’t let ignorance distract you from doin’ you

They don’t put you on TV cause they scared of your features
Lovely chocolate-coated body, no need to bleach ya
Skin you’ll never win changing your complexion
Your darkness is a gift, a true reflection
Of the original woman who gave birth to us all
The world starts and ends with you so you need to stand tall
Dark woman in the White House, your time is now
Shinin’ brighter than a lighthouse, when I see you I bow
To your greatness hope you take this as a gesture of love
Forget the jesters out there clownin’ you because
Hurt people hurt people, they don’t love themselves
Even your parents couldn’t see the beauty that they held
But it’s all good sister, we’ll make this right
The only person I know who shines in day AND night
So let me be your knight just protectin’ my queen
Dark girl, the brightest thing that the world has ever seen
