This poem represents the oppression put on the black man that we were never given anything but we still stride for greatness and ask the lord to hear our cries

This is one of many deep poems I have read in quite some time. It characterizes men of all races and it speaks truth even today. It is evident that the same still holds true today - through all the struggles that the Black American man has endured. When will this world as we know it will make every man equal (Rhetorical question). I love how he talked about how this world is shaped and molded people into thinking about the different races. My how some things never change. GOD help us all!
