MY BROTHERS by Haki R. Madhubuti

My brothers I will not tell you who to love or not love. I will only say to you that Black women have not been loved enough.

I will say to you that we are at war & that Black men in America are being removed from the earth. Like loose sand in a wind storm and that the women Black are there to teach us.

No my brothers I will not tell you who to love but I will make you aware of our self hating and hurting ways. Make you aware of whose bellies you dropped from.
